About My Clients

Life is hard. Emotions certainly don't make it any easier. I work with clients who want to feel more in control of their emotions, engage in healthier relationships, and figure out life's next steps. I specialize in helping you reduce symptoms related to anxiety, depression, and complex trauma and have experience working with neurodivergent clients. As an art therapist, I believe art-making brings unique insight and healing potential to our sessions together.

My Background and Approach

Every person’s therapeutic journey is different and is dependent on your lived experiences, personal values, and identified needs. I believe my role as a therapist is to work alongside you, guiding you towards the goals you hope to accomplish. I’m not here to tell you what to do, but I am here to encourage you to discover your authentic self and take steps towards the person you want to be and the life you want to live. Through this process, we’ll explore things that might be holding you back such as the ability to regulate your emotions, regular use of coping skills and self-care activities, and engagement in healthy relationships. We’ll explore what values you want to hold onto and which you want to let go of. We’ll look at unmet needs and how you might be using unhealthy behaviors to attempt to meet them. And through it all, I’ll create a space for you founded in trust, support, and validation.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Despite how many people have told me they “aren’t good at art”, I believe that every person has the ability to be artistic in their own way. Art is not just drawing and painting, it's the creative exploration of self through a variety of mediums - writing, knitting/crocheting, sewing, woodworking, and so on. My passion for art has led me to realize that it can be a powerful tool for self expression, especially with more difficult emotions. Through the exploration of different art materials, I found my artistic niche, although I still love to try new methods of art making! I feel inspired to help others find their own method of self expression. I am also a strong advocate for animal assisted therapy and in the process of training my own dog, Sadie. Animals can bring a positive and calming energy to therapy, creating an increased level of comfortability within the space.
