My Approach to Helping

It's scary and hard as a parent to see our children struggling. Parents come to me all the time feeling like they have tried everything to help their child ease their stress and anxiety, but nothing seems to work.

Their child is just not acting like themselves. They are acting out in ways parents have never seen before. They are quietly keeping to themselves. They are fighting with peers, siblings, and parents. They are avoiding things they once loved.

For over a decade I have been helping kids and teens in my art therapy work find relief from their stress and anxiety.

I help children to navigate emotions, reduce stress, build confidence and cultivate connections to create resilience for a lifetime.

This is just the support you need if you want to help your child: learn effective calming tools, utilize art making to express their thoughts and feelings, feel HAPPIER, HEALTHIER, AND MORE CONFIDENT at school and in their relationships.

More Info About My Practice

Maybe you wish you had another way to help your child express their thoughts and feelings...

Look no further!! As an Art Therapist, I help families to discover a deeper love and understanding of themselves through the healing and transformative powers of therapeutic art-making. One of the most effective tools for helping kids to express their emotions and build their confidence is through Art Therapy.

Art therapy is an integrative mental health profession that combines knowledge and understanding of human development, psychological theories, and techniques utilizing the creative process.

My Therapy Focus

My creative approach can be beneficial in helping individuals facing challenges including:

social skills
emotional and behavioral challenges
frustrations & anger
anxiousness & worries
adjustment issues
children of divorce or separation
personal growth
parenting skills; emotion coaching & healthy attachment

I believe all individuals have their own strengths, our work together is to figure out what helps your child to soar. I will support your child's journey to self discovery. Together, we will craft sessions that are right for your child & their healing process. I invite you to schedule a consult call today.
