Through creative activities like drawing, painting, and sculpture, clients are able to uncover and express emotions and experiences that may be too difficult to express through words. This process of using creative arts to explore the conscious and subconscious workings of the psyche can lead to greater personal insight, self-discovery, and healing.

Children and adults enjoy coming to see me and receiving an inviting space to explore their authentic self through play and art based interventions. As a neurodivergent affirming and trauma informed provider I utilize child-centered models to focus on client's strengths and encourage growth through their unique assets.

I believe you have the innate power to resolve anything and that to do so you must consider looking inward first. I work from an attachment and relational lens which means I am very curious about our earliest relationships, how they have impacted our system, guide us unconsciously, and keep us stuck in outdated/hurtful patterns.
Jordan Boyer, ASW
Our bodies are the vessel that allow us to experience this life and the relationships we cultivate hold profound significance. The dynamic relationship between our bodies and the emotional connections we form with others shapes our experiences, growth, and sense of self.
