About Me.

I am a curious and outgoing person whose love of people and art brought me to the work of art therapy and counseling. Through this work, I learned that growing up and growing older can bring painful experiences of change and loss to many people. And I learned that sharing these experiences with a caring, listening helper can be profound, healing and transformative. I stay in this work to experience life more deeply, and to nurture and celebrate the resilience of others as they do the same.

 

I hold a Bachelor’s Degree from Drake University, a Master of Arts in Art Therapy from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and am qualified to supervise professionals working towards their ATR and LPC credentials. I have specialized experience helping people with grief and loss; family caregiving; adjusting to health changes; chronic or terminal illness; physical disabilities; coping with pain; adjusting to in-home or long-term care; and maximizing quality of life with dementia.

ART THERAPY

Art therapy is a Master’s level profession that combines counseling techniques with methods of creative expression.

Art therapy is based on the ideas that art is a way to communicate, and that being creative is good for people.

Art can help people express what is difficult to put into words, provide insight, improve self-awareness, build self-confidence, develop problem-solving skills and provide a meaningful and absorbing experience that can improve mood and reduce distress from pain.

The type of artwork done or reviewed in an art therapy session is tailored to each individual’s strengths, interests and therapy goals. The art therapist does not judge or analyze the artwork, rather helps each individual find personal meaning in their own expressions.
