Over the years, I have had intimate experiences with trauma and mental illness.  Through these experiences, I felt compelled to become trauma-informed and study evidence-based design. I have a special focus and passion for empowering at-risk youth through dignity in design.


Science tells us that our built environments have the power to be transformational. About Space Designs is dedicated to creating healing environments for vulnerable populations through evidence-based design. 


For professionals, service providers, and agencies, in for-profit and non-profit sectors, that serve clients with trauma and mental health concerns, we are committed to helping you achieve improved outcomes.

By integrating our experience and knowledge of biophilic, trauma-informed, evidence-based design principles, we create spaces that nurture the human spirit.
