Speak to your children as if they are the wisest, kindest, most magical humans on the earth, for what they believe is what they will become.

Children, Adolescent, and Family Therapy

Are you concerned about your child or adolescent's  emotional wellbeing?

Do they have difficulty expressing their emotions or communicating their experiences? Perhaps they struggle with stress or coping with life's challenges? Do they have big emotions, difficulty transitioning, attending to a non-preferred activities. Are they not quite living up to their potential? 

Maybe they fall into the category of twice exceptional (both gifted and challenged) or spirited? Are you concerned about how this impacts their social relationships or how anxiety or high sensitivity is impacting their ability to enjoy being a kid? 

As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Registered Art Therapist, I offer a unique approach to therapy that can help address these issues and more.

Art Therapy

Art therapy is a powerful form of therapy that uses art-making to help children and adolescents explore their emotions, enhance their creativity, and build resilience. It provides a safe and supportive space for them to express themselves and communicate their experiences through the use of art materials and creative processes.

Some common symptoms or issues that art therapy can help address in children and adolescents include:

  • Anxiety and stress
  • Depression or low mood
  • Trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Self-esteem and body image issues
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Behavioral issues or oppositional behavior
  • Grief and loss
  • Adjustment to life changes or transitions
  • ADHD or other neurodivergent conditions (ASD)
  • Poor emotion regulation
  • High Sensitivity (HSP)

Through art therapy, children and adolescents can:

Develop emotional awareness

Art therapy can help children and adolescents identify and understand their emotions, and learn to express them in a healthy and constructive way. 

Enhance creativity

 Art therapy can inspire children and adolescents to explore their creativity and imagination, and discover new ways of expressing themselves. 

Build confidence

By creating art and expressing themselves in a supportive environment, children and adolescents can build their self-esteem and confidence. 

Manage stress and anxiety

Art therapy can provide children and adolescents with coping skills to manage stress and anxiety, and build resilience in the face of life's challenges. 

Learn skills to manage their unique challenges, Neurological emotional or situational. 

Through our therapeutic relationship, children and adolescents gain a greater understanding of themselves and the world around them, which leads to improved self-esteem, better communication, and the development of important life skills. I am here to provide a supportive and non-judgmental space for your child to explore their inner world, and to help them find their way towards a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

Family Therapy

Working with families is also an important part of my practice. Art therapy can be a powerful tool for building connections and improving communication within families. Through art-making activities, families can come together to create something meaningful, which can help strengthen their relationships and create lasting memories.

Overall, I am honored to be able to do this important work and to help young people and families find healing and growth through art therapy.
