As a third year Master’s level Art Therapy & Counseling student, I draw from both art-based and talk therapy approaches in order to best meet every client’s unique needs. I strive to understand my clients as authentically and profoundly as I can to ensure that our time together aligns with their personal values, goals, and priorities. I draw on humanistic, trauma-informed, attachment-based, and mindfulness-based approaches to assist my clients in cultivating awareness, growth, and presence in their relationships and day-to-day lives. I also encourage my clients to engage with creative interventions as a way to deepen self-knowledge, cope with stress, and process difficult experiences. In my previous role, I offered group and individual art therapy to children in a school setting. I also have a research background in child development. In my personal art practice, I enjoy drawing, painting, candle making, and shoemaking. What inspires me most about art is its ability to embody the inner world of a human being.
I am pursuing my degree at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and practice under the supervision of Paige Bartley, LCSW. I am currently accepting clients of all age groups.
