I have been an art therapist for 22 years. I am a board certified art therapist (2001) in addition to being a Licensed Professional Counselor (2002).
I have had advance training in the area of trauma and various treatments. I have worked with individuals who have experienced trauma for over 20 years.
I have worked with kids/teens for over 20 years that have struggled with attachment, and experienced abandonment and loss. I have worked with hundreds of kids in foster care, and/or who had a parent incarcerated, in active addiction, etc.
For the duration of my career I have worked with families on how to recover from difficult situations, trauma, divorce, and other stressors they may encounter.
I have worked primarily with kids and teens, and have spent much of my career focused on working with teenagers and the issues that come with these years. My laid back and creative approach is often refreshing for teens.
