“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” ~Maya Angelou

Can you relate to the feelings in this image?

Are you a new parent, expecting a child, or struggling to parent your young children? This can be an isolating and depressing place where anxious thoughts take over. Everyone around you seems to have it all together. So you wonder: Am I supposed to feel like this?

You are not alone. This is the hardest life transition. You may feel a loss of autonomy or are grieving your former identity. Maybe you find that you’re using substances more frequently to cope with the daily stress. Perhaps the challenges are multiplied because of your race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, or gender. If you are suffering through the days, putting your needs last, carrying the weight of abuse or oppression, or in crisis-- I see you, and I want to help you transform trauma and step into your power.

What Is Art Therapy?

“Art therapy, facilitated by a professional art therapist, effectively supports personal and relational treatment goals as well as community concerns. Art therapy is used to improve cognitive and sensorimotor functions, foster self-esteem and self-awareness, cultivate emotional resilience, promote insight, enhance social skills, reduce and resolve conflicts and distress, and advance societal and ecological change.” ~American Art Therapy Association

I’m here for you…

You need unconditional support, community, and healing right now. As a mother of two boys, I understand the struggles of parenting. When this picture was taken, my 9 month old baby was crawling around my feet between electrical cords. It’s amazing that I’m looking at the camera!

When I was ready, art therapy helped me to transform my birth trauma, and now I am a counselor specializing in art therapy techniques to process trauma. As your collaborator and guide, I offer an experienced, unique perspective to embrace this challenging time in your life.
