My Approach to Helping

Are you looking to try something different? Curious about incorporating art or creative expression into sessions? Blank Canvas Art Therapy is a collaborative space to engage and process emotions and experiences in an accessible and creative way. Art therapy is about discovering your own way of using art or creative expression as a meaningful tool for personal insight and self-growth, and I can help you discover and utilize those tools. You absolutely do no need art materials or any formal skills to do art therapy. Typical sessions tend to have a combination of both art and talk therapy and can be tailored to your needs.

I typically work with adults (18 and older) who are seeking support with trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, bereavement, and life transitions. I believe in developing authentic and trusting relationships with clients, and I work collaboratively with them to achieve their goals, develop effective coping skills, and highlight inner resiliency.

As an art therapist and mental health counselor, I believe in the healing qualities of mark-making and using creative materials as a tool to facilitate deeper understanding of ourselves and experiences.

More Info About My Practice

I am only offering telehealth services at this time. I have also found that telehealth art therapy has been very helpful for those who may not live in an area with easy access to an in-person art therapist. Clients still benefit from this creative approach, and the art work done in session can be a helpful visual record of their progress.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I love being an art therapist because I am able to offer a creative way for clients to process and integrate their experiences through materials. As a therapist I am truly honored to witness my clients' transformational, deep inner work.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

It is my responsibility to constantly check my privileges and to educate myself how systemic racism, mircoaggressions, and social injustices are constantly perpetuated against BIPOC, multicultural individuals, and LGBTQAI+ folks. I am also an ethnic white American who parents and extended family emigrated from Europe, and because of this upbringing, I am sensitive to hold space for others who also experienced first- and second- generational expectations from loved ones.
