About My Clients

I have experience working with adults with a wide variety of strengths and needs in both outpatient and community based settings. I also have experience working with children ages 5-14 and families in a restrictive residential setting that included navigating through multiple systems and advocacy in addition to the intensive therapeutic work provided. My work with children and adolescents included experience with developmental and intellectual disabilities in addition to intense trauma therapy.

My Background and Approach

I utilize a trauma-informed, person-centered, integrative approach to therapy. I utilize expressive art approaches and interventions in addition to more traditional modalities based on client need, comfort, and request. I have my Master's Degree in Art Therapy and graduated from Nazareth College in 2016. I am a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist. I aim to foster a strength based relationship and collaborative environment with my clients to support healing, healthy perceptions, and authentic expression. I have experience supporting individuals, children, and families in safely processing and increasing their capacity to cope with adverse experiences and trauma.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

"As no one else can know how we perceive, we are the best experts on ourselves.” - Carl Rogers. I believe therapy and intentional time for self exploration are important for growth and development. I believe that everyone is capable of increasing their capacity for safe navigation of individual and shared challenges. Sometimes an unbiased person, structure, and non threatening space are important factors in growing that capacity. I am hopeful that the stigma surrounding mental health decreases over time as it is a shared human need.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
