Every human being is innately deserving of respect, celebration, and community. It is through community that we grow into the most authentic and joyful versions of ourselves. Vulnerability is hard, but I believe it is the portal to living your best life and fostering genuine connection with others. I am pro-you in whatever way you show up–your gender identity and expression, sexual orientation and expression, justice system involvement, relationship style, body size and physical ability, race and ethnicity, and unique way of experiencing and interacting with the world are welcome and celebrated here!
My journey as an art therapist began instinctively as an art teacher after years of witnessing the healing and growth of my teenage students. When given the space to explore and imagine, students gained insight into themselves and each other. Because of these experiences, I’ve always had a passion for working with teenagers–particularly those who are part of the LGBTQIA+ community. I have seen creativity transform communities and grow our capacity for empathy and empowerment. I strive to make this transformation accessible to anyone who seeks it.
Curiosity, creativity, and softness are the heart of my practice. I will meet you where you are, whether you’re just starting your therapeutic journey or you’re a seasoned self-healer looking to maintain your growth. There is no wrong time to embark on this journey or return to it. Creativity is part of the human experience and can bring communication and clarity where words alone cannot. Working from a Humanistic, Feminist, Social Justice, and trauma-informed framework, I invite you to learn about yourself through the process of artmaking. I know that you are the expert on yourself and your experiences, and I’m here to facilitate and support your personal growth and healing.
