“I believe that it is every person’s responsibility to practice empathy, specifically in “seeing with the eyes of another, listening with the ears of another, and feeling with the heart of another.”

As a therapist, it is my job to encourage young people to discover and uncover their inner potential, and to explore the ways the world around them is interrupting this potential. I have found the inclusion of art to be incredibly helpful with any age range, but particularly for children, adolescents and young adults who experience depression, anxiety, or who have behavioral struggles. I specialize in working with individuals ages 8-28 years old.

For younger clients, while I encourage family members to be involved with therapy, it should be expected that there will be matters of privacy and images or conversations that will not be shared, unless immediate attention is needed. When working with a client under 18, I typically use the art and images made to educate the parent’s on what therapeutic themes are being seen in session and ways they can continue building healthy emotions post-session. 

No matter the age, I work best with clients and families who are open and willing to explore what is happening in their lives that is causing their distress. I really enjoy working with young people who are struggling, but motivated to work on themselves and are interested in creating a positive change in their life.

I earned my master’s degree in Art Therapy and Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Adler Graduate School in Richfield, MN, and I am a Registered Art Therapist (ATR). I am currently licensed in the state of MN as a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor.
