About my current series.....Therapy and the arts 

I am working on a series of paintings about my experience with mental health. Not only as a licensed therapist, but as an artist and a consumer of MHS. Each painting explores the visual image of emotions associated with a current mental health diagnoses and are meant to stimulate an emotional reaction from the viewer.

As artists we are barometers of society, we study the history of art history and the use of different mediums.
As a therapist I am witness to the pain and suffering of others on a frequent basis. I study the human mind, behaviors and different ways to improve the existence of my clients.
