Hello! I am a Registered Art Therapist & Licensed Mental Health Counselor. I use the art process to promote healthy emotional expression.
Art Therapist in Tallahassee, FL
I have several years of experience working with adolescents ages 13-17. For adolescents, art therapy can provide a supportive and engaging way to navigate personal challenges, peer conflicts, and life transitions that may be difficult to process in traditional talk therapy settings.
I have worked with clients to process trauma resulting from physical and sexual abuse or assault, as well as domestic violence and recovery from traumatic events or accidents. I help clients use art materials to process emotions and memories related to their traumatic experiences, as well as identifying and addressing trauma-related symptoms such as intrusive thoughts, anxiety, and nightmares.
I graduated with my Master of Science in Art Therapy and completed two years of post-graduate supervision to obtain my Registered Art Therapist Credential. I have completed extensive training in the application of specific art materials such as chalk, paint, clay, fiber arts, and other art media and how these materials can facilitate connection to emotions as well as healthy self-expression.
