My Ideal Client

Art therapy has been shown to be especially beneficial for treating anxiety, trauma/PTSD, and eating disorders. What clients experiencing these symptoms might have in common is a tendency to avoid or suppress emotional pain, disconnecting from bodily sensations, and a desire for over-control. Through the creative art process, clients can improve confidence, communication, flexibility, distress tolerance skills, emotional regulation, strengthen the mind-body connection, and so much more.

My Approach to Helping

As an art therapist I help clients use both the art-making process and the art product to gain self-awareness and increase insight. I call this "visual language." I help clients learn how to externalize their inner thoughts and feelings, so they can be recognized, understood, and sometimes challenged, then reintegrated and accepted for behavioral change. I have received training in many artistic disciplines (e.g., drawing, painting, pottery, sculpture, and mixed media), as well as human development, psychology, counseling theories, and methodology. With this training in mind, I use a combination of art and psychology theories and techniques to help my clients achieve their desired therapeutic outcomes. I have worked in a variety of mental health settings including schools, outpatient clinics, a partial hospitalization/intensive-outpatient treatment program, and a subacute residential treatment facility. I have experience working with folks across the lifespan.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I became an art therapist because I am passionate about helping people discover more about themselves through the creative art process. From a young age, I always found so much joy making things with my hands and getting absorbed into a flow state of inspiration and creativity. I developed a strong curiosity about people and the world around me. This curiosity led me into the field of psychology, where I studied the healing power of social connections. I was driven to build my skills in psychology, while not losing my love of art, which led me into the field of art therapy. It feels like a dream come true to get to combine all my passions into one career where I can help others. During my leisure time, I try to practice what I preach by nurturing my mind and body. I enjoy traveling to the coast, tapping into my creative roots, or hiking in one of Oregon's many natural areas with my spouse and my three-legged dog, Finn.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Anxiety External link

    Anxiety is a normal, developmental stress response that can sometimes go into overdrive, causing us to feel excessive worry and dread about our present and future experiences. I help individuals learn how to understand, manage, and work with their anxiety to live a more balanced, meaningful life. Art therapy can be especially helpful for anxiety treatment because the art process is inherently therapeutic, and the art product offers a safe outlet to support your emotions, worries, and fears.

  • PTSD External link

    Trauma symptoms can come from a single event (acute), repeated or prolonged exposure (chronic), or exposure to varied and multiple traumatic events (complex). I use art therapy, narrative-storytelling techniques, the mind-body connection, and the therapeutic relationship itself to help folks emotionally process and make meaning from living through a variety of traumatic experiences.

  • Eating Disorder External link

    I worked in a PHP/IOP eating disorders program for 2 years. Now, as an outpatient eating disorders therapist, I work with adolescents and adults in recovery for Anorexia nervosa, Bulimia nervosa, ARFID, and many varieties of Unspecified eating disorders. I understand that eating disorders are always more than 'just eating.' I support individuals in healing the roots that led to the onset/development of their eating disorders, so longer-lasting recovery and maintenance can be achieved.

  • Adjustment Disorder External link

    An adjustment disorder is an emotional or behavioral reaction to a stressful event or change in a person's life. The COVID-19 pandemic is a global stressor that may lead to increased anxiety, depression, isolation, loneliness, confusion, and fear. I'd love to help you process the ways you've been impacted by the pandemic, and support you with adjusting to this new normal.
