Art Therapy 


Art therapy is a gentle and non-invasive therapeutic approach that values your personal experience, your  unique way of expressing yourself, and your innate ability to heal. Art therapy is for everyone - no art experience is necessary.

My Practice

I work with children 8 years and older, teens, and adults for a variety of reasons, such as feelings of anxiety, depression, low motivation, low self-esteem, feeling "stuck" or for general coping support. For support during major life transitions such as career loss or change, infertility, parenthood, empty nest and retirement, as well as for processing trauma, grief and loss. 


 As a Certified Child Life Specialist (CCLS), I also have specific knowledge and experience with individuals who have experienced medical trauma, who have chronic or long-term medical needs, and with siblings of children with medical needs.

I offer introductory phone calls to answer any questions or to see if art therapy would be a match for you, 60-minute art therapy sessions for youth over 8 years old and adults, and Parent & Child or Sibling Dyad sessions.

"When words are not enough, we turn to images and symbols to tell our stories. And in telling our stories through art, we find pathways to wellness, recovery and transformation."
