    Biography

    What I Do
    I am a Board-Certified Registered Art Therapist as well as a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor. My specialties include working with grief and loss, trauma, anxiety, and depression. My work is two-fold here at CentraCare – Coborn Cancer Center. I provide short-term emotional support for cancer patients and their caregivers by teaching skills for coping and allowing space for healing while overcoming the stressors of cancer. I also run the art therapy program. Art therapy is using art to gain non-art related goals such as reduction of stress, anxiety, and increasing overall mood. When attending art therapy, no art experience is needed, just an open mind.

    Why I Love My Work
    I chose to go into art therapy for my love art as well as love for helping others. What I enjoy most about my job is seeing people heal by gaining joy, creating new attitudes, and having a new outlook on life.

    Getting to Know Me
    My husband and I have three children, two dogs, and one cat. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family, making art, being in nature, drinking coffee, and traveling.
