I provide a supportive environment for self-expression to help return you to a sense of wellness and health. I believe that with embracing creativity through art making, you can find relief from emotional pain, gain self-understanding and insight, and heal from trauma.
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and Board-Certified Registered Art Therapist (ATR-BC) and completed my master’s degree in Adlerian Counseling and Psychotherapy with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy and Art Therapy at the American Art Therapy Association (AATA) approved Adler Graduate School in Minnesota in 2013. In addition, I am an adjunct faculty member for Adler Graduate School and am an art therapy supervisor at Invigorate Life Counseling. Through my teaching and supervision, I have a passion for giving back to new art therapists and the art therapy community!
I am a Healing-Centered and trauma informed practitioner in both EMDR and AIR (Adaptive Internal Relational) Network Therapy. I combine these therapies in a unique way with art therapy. I am able to empower you to move through your healing process in a compassionate way. I enjoy working with children, adolescents, adults and families utilizing the art therapy approach.
“When I work with you as an art therapist, I strive to help you embrace your creativity and unlock your full potential through engaging your spirit through the act of making imagery from the heart and soul.“ — Kristin
