About My Clients

Have you ever felt like words are too clumsy to express what you're feeling? Maybe you've tried talk therapy and it just didn't feel like it was... enough. If so, I invite you to join me on a journey to find your voice through art therapy. While I specialize in people who have experienced pregnancy loss, I encourage all who are curious about (especially those of you who feel a tad intimidated by) creative self-expression to reach out. My office is a space for everyone!

My Background and Approach

You may be wondering- what exactly is clinical art therapy? I promise that you don't have to be an artist to participate! In session, you can expect to use art as a tool to enhance traditional talk therapy methods. I consider my therapeutic style "chameleon-like" because no client is the same and therefore should not be treated the same. I am intent on fostering a relationship with you in which you can trust and feel empowered to celebrate your unique self. Combined with art therapy, my approach creates a dynamic healing outcome that goes beyond talk therapy alone. Through the tool of art, I walk alongside you while you explore, play, heal, and find a loving home within yourself. Above everything, I strive to be a hope-maker for you. Please reach out to me and we can get the ball rolling!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Before you could walk or talk, you adapted to be able to express yourself without words. This is why I believe that creativity is a natural part of humanity. Your ability to create and express yourself never goes away- but sometimes you may lose touch with that side. Thats where art therapy can come in! My practice bridges the counseling process with the inherent healing power of creative self-expression. I believe in fostering a safe and loving environment for your self-expression and healing to thrive. Because you deserve to feel a sense of pride, hope, courage, integrity, and compassion in your life. Connection with one another breeds the hope, empowerment, and courage necessary to help make your desired life changes possible. My philosophy as a clinician is that art therapy is for everyone. Which is why I welcome all those who feel compelled to reach out to me today!
