A bit about me

I am a mother, a teacher, an artist, and a therapist.

I love colors. I love textures. I love playing with images and designs to tell my story. Each mark I make is a part of me. Each piece I create is a little window of my soul. My goal is to transmit my contagious love for the arts to people I encounter and allow them to experience the power of expressive arts for emotional relief and healing.

Clinical Background

I'm a licensed marriage and family therapist specialized in art therapy. 

I work with people in the midst of significant life challenges, transitions, emotional and/or physical pain and suffering.
