I've worked with preteens, teens, and adults in the Education sector for over 15 years. I now have the privilege of working with the same populations in a private practice environment, which provides more freedom to focus on the needs of my clients and their families. Most of my clients are teens and adults experiencing anxiety, school issues, identity struggles, relationship difficulties, or career dissatisfaction. My clients make changes to increase their satisfaction in their daily lives through committed action between sessions.

JFK said children are our most valuable resource and our best hope for the future. With that said, why would we not invest in our children? These are challenging times. Every day seems to bring some sort of new hurdle or obstacle whether it be the pandemic, school shootings, an economic recession; the list goes on. Talking to someone can make this an easier load to carry, and who wouldn't want that?

As a creative arts therapist, I use talk, art , music, play, and sand tray.
It would be nice to say that we could go through life without heart ache or struggle, but unfortunately no one is immune to challenges. So what do we do when life becomes overwhelming? How do we handle intense emotions? How do we create meaningful relationships in the face of conflict? As a therapist, I have worked for over 20 years helping people find ways to cope with life's difficulties, make and maintain positive relationships, learn to understand their emotional reactions, and find ways to clarify their goals so that they may create a life that feels worth living.

People and their stories have always inspired and humbled me. Helping others to walk through their shadows and experience the light is a true gift. Earlier in my life I went through some difficult experiences. The wilderness, music, art , and movement helped me to feel and learn to move through those hardships. My connection with the natural world has revealed my inner potential and helped me to heal from traumas. I am dedicated to incorporating my knowledge of therapy, relationship to the natural world, yoga and expressive arts for each person I work with. I believe in feeling all of the human emotions with balance and intention.

Art Therapy

How does art therapy work?

The process of making art allows people to express themselves. Art-making can take many forms, such as painting, collage, or sculpting. The therapist asks questions that the work elicits, such as how the person felt while creating their piece, or if any memories surfaced that they can discuss. The therapist will then work with the patient to process their experience, understand themselves better, and work toward change.

Does art therapy help with trauma?

Art therapy can be a valuable treatment option for those suffering from trauma. Traumatic experiences such as combat, rape, or childhood abuse can be so painful that articulating them can be too scary or painful; creating art allows people to express themselves without words, and tell their story in a different way. The physical nature of creating art can also help people feel rooted in the body, which may benefit those who feel disconnected from their body in the aftermath of trauma.

How long does art therapy last?

The duration of art therapy varies, but a common length for treatment is 10 to 15 weekly sessions. Some people may see improvement in just a few weeks, while others may choose to remain in therapy longer term. Patients should periodically discuss their goals with their therapist to make sure the two are aligned on process and progress.

What are the limitations of art therapy?

Art therapy is helpful for many people, but a limitation is that it doesn’t have as robust an evidence base as other forms of therapy, such as cognitive behavioral therapy or acceptance and commitment therapy. The evidence on art therapy is mixed; some research demonstrates its benefits, while other research suggests that it has little impact on patients.
