About My Clients

I currently provide in-home or online art therapy sessions for children, adolescents and adults. Art therapy is a collaborative healing process where you and I work together to enhance your life and enable you to thrive amidst challenge. I will join you and help uncover the obstacles that lie between your present state and feelings of well-being. No artistic skill is required for your participation in art therapy. We focus on the "process" not the "product" of art.

My Background and Approach

Art Therapy is my passion. I have a Masters degree in Art Therapy from the George Washington University with a concentration on trauma and creativity. I am registered with the Art Therapy Credentials Board as a Provisional Art Therapist and currently receive supervision from a Board Certified Art Therapist. I also am registered as a Mental Health Counselor Intern for the state of Florida, receiving supervision from Dr. Melanie Smith PhD, LMHC. My treatment focuses on each individual client's needs. Working together, I am dedicated to helping hold your story. I believe that you are the expert and that our role is to leave you feeling empowered and capable of directing your own treatment and life journey. I strive to provide a safe, warm, and supportive environment that helps you build on your existing resources.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

It is my belief that everyone deserves to be happy, to have their voice heard. I am here to listen and be present with you in the creative process. Your experience in this creative process can help you improve interpersonal skills, reconcile emotional conflicts, manage behavior, reduce anxiety and depression, foster self-awareness, and increase self-esteem. Please contact me today to arrange an appointment. I look forward to hearing from you!
