About My Clients

I treat clients across the lifespan but have primarily worked with young adults who may find themselves struggling with anxiety, life transitions, and stress. My clients come from diverse backgrounds and I welcome any person who resonates with a holistic approach and the expressive arts modality.

My Background and Approach

I have experience working with both adults and children in a wide range of settings and across various levels of care. I provide clients with an authentic and safe therapeutic space and enjoy working with individuals of all ages. As every client is unique, I incorporate a variety of modalities and theories to meet the needs of each individual. My training in art therapy, trauma theory and experience of working with emotionally distressed individuals support my belief of the innate tendency of trauma survivors to be resilient.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Art therapy is a unique practice that allows individuals to engage the mind, body and spirit in ways that are distinct from verbal articulation alone. I believe that through the creative process, clients are able to bypass barriers that can be present in verbal processing and give a voice to their experience without judgement. I believe that encouraging creative expression and reflection in sessions with clients helps them to explore, process, empower and strengthen their relationship with themselves and the world around them.
