I graduated from Southwestern in 2002 with my MA in Art Therapy. Since then I have lived in Illinois, Tennessee, and Wisconsin. I have spent most of my career working with children and adolescents, many of them in the foster care system. I am now an independent contractor in a private practice just outside of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I continue to work with children and adolescents, as well as adults. I have developed an interest and further training in attachment therapy and looking at how attachments effect the relationships we have with others. This continues my work with foster children as well as those that have been adopted. I continue to use my art therapy skills and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I just finished up an art therapy group with adults creating mandalas. The clinic I work in is the only licensed clinic in Wisconsin that is holistic and does Intensive Outpatient Program for adult drug and alcohol. Most of my colleagues are certified in AODA and I work in collaboration with them through my art therapy skills, knowledge, and board certification, including being a holistic for the IOP. The clinic also has 4 psychiatrists and we have regular collaboration with them. It is a great working environment that is multi-faceted and we use a team approach.
