Art Therapy and Counseling Intern
Life has a funny way of doing the exact opposite of what you’d hope—and when it does, it feels anything but funny. It may feel closer to being stuck, out of control, or somewhere in between. Above all else it feels bleak, and I’m not here to tell you it isn’t.
But I can tell you the good news: you carry the coolest, most beautiful parts of being human within you already. All aspects of your life inform not only what you struggle with today, but also the ways you can step into your best self. My job is to find creative solutions to help untangle the stubborn knots that keep you from doing just that.
My goal is to earn the trust you’d reserve for a trusted confidante, someone who walks with you on your journey. I consider my job well done if I can empower you to pave new paths forward, navigate obstacles in your way, and utilize your strengths to problem solve. My approach is down-to-earth, educational, collaborative, and above all else, custom-made for your unique way of living your life. Your upbringing, social circumstances, and unique experiences make up who you are, and the way we work together should reflect that. If you’re looking for someone who can foster coping skills for anxiety, bolster your sense of self, or foster the connection between your mind and body, I’m the therapist for you. As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, I’m especially passionate about working with LGBTQIA+ individuals, including those with trans or gender-nonconforming identities. Being unapologetically yourself in a world that’s determined to keep you from doing so is the bravest thing a person can do, and it would be my honor to have your back while you do it.
I use art as a tool to understand you, and to help you understand yourself. Art-making is a natural complement to counseling, and you don’t need to be a self-proclaimed “artist” to utilize it.
It provides another mode of communication for us to utilize, especially when words just don’t cut it; why say it when you could make it? By integrating talk therapy and art, we have access to a deeper range of processing, feeling, and understanding—and we might just have a little fun doing it.
Imagine a canvas of possibilities, where every cut-out image and word pastes a part of your aspirations and dreams.
