Biography: I learned early on that there is a strong connection between the mind and body. I earned my bachelor’s in art education from Youngstown State University and later a post-masters in school counseling. Through helping others in their creating, I began to witness their healing. I soon heard about art therapy and became eager to branch out into counseling while utilizing a variety of artistic modalities. For years, I witnessed individuals share their stories through their art as they found and followed their own path in healing.

Another interest of mine is the study of the brain. My two passions, art, and neuroscience became the foundation of my thesis at Ursuline College where I earned a master’s in counseling and art therapy. I have since utilized interventions that assist and educate my clients on the functions of the brain and the effects they have on the body. My clients now have a greater understanding of brain function and self-regulation through grounding interventions and therapies. Over the years, my life has cycled from art to education to the brain and back again. I’ve used the knowledge I’ve gathered to guide my clients on their own path to self-awareness, empowerment, and enlightenment.


I practice a holistic, eclectic, spiritualistic approach utilizes Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) interventions, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) inspired coping skills, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) along with a variety of expressive therapies such as art therapy, guided image, and mindfulness. My specialties include working with anxiety, stress management, women’s issues, relationships, phase of life, separation, divorce, and trauma as well as group work. I am currently working on my EMDRIA certification.
Art remains a healing force in my life, and it continues to be today. I love to spend time with my family, continue to create art, cook, bake, and exercise my green thumb! (All grounding interventions).
