I am a Licensed Professional Art Therapist Associate who loves utilizing art to communicate and navigate through life’s challenges. I strive to provide a welcoming environment that is adaptable to my clients’ needs and interests. It is important to me to provide my clients with tools to build the proper toolbox they require to meet their goals and achieve their highest potential. My experience in early childhood education has opened my eyes to the impact of early intervention. My time working in residential and outpatient care settings has strengthened my drive to help children, adolescents and families identify their strengths.
Art has presented its healing properties throughout my life in various forms; I am passionate in sharing its therapeutic qualities.
My journey has driven me to acquire a Bachelor’s in Art and Psychology and a Master’s of Education in Counseling and Personnel Services with a concentration in Art Therapy from the University of Louisville. Throughout my master’s program I gained experience in outpatient and residential settings. I worked with children and adults facing a variety of diagnoses including but not limited to depression, bipolar, anxiety, ADHD, autism, neurodivergence and trauma-related disorders. I am currently seeking a licensure as a Professional Art Therapist and receiving clinical supervision under Emily Welsh, LPAT, LPCC, ATR-BC.
I enjoy showing and sharing art’s ability to heal. I’d be honored to guide you and your family through that experience.
