What is Art Therapy?
Art Therapy is an integrative mental health and human services profession that enriches the lives of individuals, families, and communities through active art-making, creative process, applied psychological theory, and human experience within a psychotherapeutic relationship.
Art Therapy, facilitated by a professional art therapist, effectively supports personal and relational treatment goals as well as community concerns. Art therapy is used to improve cognitive and sensorimotor functions, foster self-esteem and self-awareness, cultivate emotional resilience, promote insight, enhance social skills, reduce and resolve conflicts and distress, and advance societal and ecological change.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, a Registered Art Therapist, and a Board Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist. My approach is attachment-based/Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and I am trained in several other modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Mindfulness. But I customize each treatment based on my clients’ needs. I am currently in the process of getting certified in Sex Therapy and EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy).
