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

  • Eating Disorder External link

    I have worked in a partial hospitalization/intensive outpatient eating disorders program for 2 years. I worked with adolescents and adults, and their families, to address and treat anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, ARFID, and many varieties of unspecified eating disorders. While in this setting, I was trained to help individuals medically stabilize their symptoms so they could pursue outpatient work for longer term relapse prevention.

  • Anxiety External link

    I have been helping individuals of all ages learn how to understand and manage their anxiety symptoms to live a more meaningful life. Art therapy can be especially helpful for treating individuals with anxiety because it offers an outlet for safe emotional expression and acts as a container to externalize fears, worries, and phobias.

  • PTSD External link

    My experience has been treating individuals with trauma/PTSD from grief and loss, bullying, domestic violence, emotional abuse, sexual abuse/assault, physical assault, attachment disruption, veterans, and first responders.
