I specialize in Art Therapy and counseling with a creative approach for children aged 7 and older, teens, and young adults.
Art Therapist in Guilford, CT
I am an adoption-competent therapist certified by the Center for Adoption Support & Education (C.A.S.E). This means that I specialize in providing support specific to the needs of children, teens, and young adults whose lives have been impacted by adoption and/or foster care. I use a whole-family and strengths-focused approach and have a strong appreciation and commitment to understanding you or your child’s unique story.
Art Therapy is a holistic form of counseling and a mental health profession that is more hands-on than traditional talk therapy alone. As humans, we experience the world in a multidimensional and sensory way (visual, tactile, etc ) therefore it makes sense to process our experiences and create new meaning in this way as well. When we engage in the creative process we involve our body, spirit, mind and soul. We are designed to create!
