In 2005, I graduated from Florida Atlantic University with a B.S. in Psychology and a B.A. in Fine/Studio Arts with a concentration in sculptural ceramics. In 2007, I moved to Santa Fe, NM to obtain my Masters in Art Therapy and Mental Health Counseling from Southwestern College. During my attendance at Southwestern College I gained experience working with a variety of populations including children, adults, and seniors. In 2014, I opened my own private practice, Artistic Wellness where I provide counseling and art therapy in the comfort of your own home via in-person or teletherapy platforms. In 2014, I also began work at Montecito Santa Fe where I provided a daily schedule of enriching and culturally stimulating activities for elders in a retirement community consisting of assisted living and independent seniors. In 2020, I began work as a telehealth therapist providing mental health counseling services to many people across the world through BetterHelp. I am currently a Clinical Mental Health Counselor and Licensed Art Therapist.
