As a Resident in Counseling and art therapist, my approach to working with others is informed by the ways in which we can utilize the creative process to restore and grow ourselves, and to learn from life’s most challenging moments. My experience in providing counseling and art therapy services to our community spans a broad spectrum including pediatric hospitals, alternative schools, and psychiatric inpatient care for children and adults. When navigating through the therapeutic process I aim to provide a place of safety and acceptance, where those I work with can share openly knowing they are understood and respected. No prior experience with art materials is needed to engage in the power of creativity as a source of healing. I see the therapeutic process as an opportunity to journey with others and provide healing through collaboration in seeking out your strengths to achieve your goals.
