My Approach

DURING COVID-19, ALL SESSIONS ARE CURRENTLY BEING CONDUCTED VIA TELEHEALTH VIDEO ONLY. Therapy is a call to adventure and self-exploration. I offer a non-judgmental and supportive healing environment where clients of all ages may process difficult feelings and get to know themselves more fully through art; sandplay, and conversation. I will ask clarifying and amplifying questions to promote the integration of shadow, which brings with it revitalized possibilities for being in balance within oneself and the world.

My Background

I hold a Master's degree in Art Therapy/Counseling. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Licensed and Registered Art Therapist (ATR.) I specialize in mindfulness-based art therapy and sandplay for individual children, adolescents, and adults. I work with clients facing a variety of issues, including: anxiety; grief and loss; divorce; the search for meaning in mid-life; parenting issues; spiritual concerns; life transitions; depression; and historical traumas and abuse.
