What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

In school I actually first majored in math, but I also focused on studio arts and psychology. I loved studying about why we do the things we do, what drives us, and all the different ways we cope with adversity. At the same time, I felt so at home being in the studio creating art. Eventually I realized that art gave me permission to experiment and be playful, try things out, and make mistakes. Not only did it give me an outlet to deal with stress, it helped me express myself in a way I never had before. When I discovered art therapy, everything clicked. I knew this was a path for me, so I could share with everyone what art could do for self expression, discovery, and overall emotional wellness.

What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

Art-making is never mandatory. While some clients might enjoy using the arts each session, others might prefer traditional talk therapy, and that is perfectly alright; there is a wide range of possibilities for how we incorporate (or don’t incorporate!) the arts into our work together.
