I have worked in the field of art therapy for over 25 years.
I am a Board Certified Registered Art Therapist (2006/1992) and Licensed Professional Counselor in Colorado (2000).
I have been honored to work with many individuals and small groups over the years providing art therapy and counseling for adults, children and teens.
I offer individual Art Therapy and Counseling sessions for adults 18 and older utilizing image making and art making in therapy. Art Therapy is depth psychology and process oriented. It moves us forward with imagery and self-expression, holding and containing. I am passionate about Art Therapy. I am honored to work with people as they better understand themselves, to witness their process, and to assist them as they identify and release old stories and conflicts.
I hold a Master’s degree from Lesley College in Expressive Arts Therapy with concentration in Art Therapy. There I had the good fortune of working with Dr. Shaun McNiff, Dr. Thomas Moore, Paolo Knill, and Dr. Suzanne Canner-Hume. Following my graduate work, I began a working, supervisory relationship with Dr. Myra Levick, PhD, ATR-BC. Under Dr. Levick’s supervision and guidance, I developed a passion for Art Therapy Assessment, in particular, Dr. Levick’s The Levick Emotional and Cognitive Art Therapy Assessment. I became a practitioner and teacher of The LECATA, and similarly, the Silver Draw-A-Story Art Therapy Assessment developed by Dr. Rawley Silver, with whom I dialogued about her assessment and it’s applications and findings.
Since 2007, I have been providing clinical supervision to art therapists, those working toward registration and certification, and those interested in continued professional development.
I am fortunate to love the work I do. Please let me know how I might be of support to you in your process either personally, or professionally.
I have many years of experience and successfully work with people, healing from grief and loss, healing unresolved childhood trauma, unhealthy relationship patterns, poor self-esteem, illness or injury, emotional challenges, difficulty identifying and expressing feelings, highly sensitive, gifted and talented and those on the autism spectrum. I have assisted those in recovery address unresolved inner conflict so that they might live more freely in sobriety.
