Noelle considers herself to be a strength based, person-centered psychotherapist. She hopes to provide a safe space for folks to process emotions at their own pace.

In her spare time she can be found enjoying LGBTQ+ community events in the Twin Cities, spending time with family and friends or watching Disney movies with her spoiled pin-chi-weenie, Cecil.

Supervision Focused Process Painting

Come express, process, gain support, encouragement and empowerment in your work as an Art Therapist through your painting process.  You will receive 4 hours of supervision credit.

Using multi-media, participants will create on one surface throughout the class.  Supported by writing prompts and instructor guidance, students will discover how this surface reflects their journey as a healer and helper and their internal wisdom.  Themes such as mindfulness, acceptance, trust-in-self, working as a therapist as journey rather than a destination will be woven throughout the painting process.  Students will leave the day with numerous ways to begin and to find deeper connection to their work with clients.

An environment void of pressure can free mental and emotional blocks and unleash strengths, personality, intuition and creativity.  All experience levels are welcomed and can benefit from this workshop.  This class is specifically for post grad Art therapists needing ATR credit.
