Your work together may include some big feelings or difficult subjects, which does not have to suck! We will make it fun through art/creative expression, mindfulness, games, movement, play, and sensory experiences. During her off-hours, she enjoys engaging in a wide variety of ever-changing hobbies. As of late, they include art with paint, pencil, and/or power tools; backpacking and camping; reading; video games; and volunteering. Her other full-time job is providing entertainment for and bowing to the demands of her dog, Monty.
