Anyone who can hold a crayon or a pen can use lines, shapes and colors to show something about a feeling or an experience. Individuals of all ages, “from 3 to 93,” can find the experience of making art uplifting.
That’s why I fell in love with art therapy. It’s something anyone can benefit from, and most of my clients are both pleased and surprised at how it feels to let their creative spark ignite into a drawing or painting or design — even clients who assured me they had no artistic or creative talent! Making art offers a way to say things you just can’t put into words. It lets you form a vision for your future that you might never see as clearly any other way.

My office in Annapolis, MD provides a safe, inviting place for people to seek healing for mind, body, and spirit in unison.
I am board certified and licensed to practice art therapy in the state of Maryland. I hold both a Bachelors and a Masters degree, and a Graduate Certificate in Art Therapy, with a solid foundation in both clinical psychology and art.
