I’ve facilitated individual and group art therapy in school and hospital settings to those with disabilities and mental illness. I’ve worked alongside therapists, social workers, teachers, and medical staff to provide the best treatment to clients.
I became interested in art therapy several years ago, while I was volunteering in the diversionary art program at a children’s hospital. I witnessed the power of the creative process as a way to promote healing, and cope with serious illness. Since then, I’ve worked with children in many different ways— as art therapist, teacher, and caregiver.
In private practice, I enjoy working with children, adolescents, and adults struggling with anxiety, self-esteem, and relationship issues. I specialize in working with adoptees of all ages who are interested in exploring their adoption experiences.
Originally from Oklahoma, I enjoy the fast-paced lifestyle of New York City. I completed my Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Oklahoma, and moved to New York a few years later to pursue my master’s in art therapy. I’ve lived in New York for almost five years.
The sights and sounds of the city continue to amaze me, but I also appreciate taking the time to slow down. I love sitting in one of the many beautiful parks with a good book on a sunny day. I find time to make art every week, and attend a yoga class.
