I enjoy working with adolescents and young adults in particular. Why this specific focus? We seem to be living in an age of an ever expanding length of time for the period of "adolescence".

They live in a world rich with media information, electronic devices and they are exposed to adult material and adult issues at earlier and earlier ages.

It is an extremely difficult time with many challenges for them and for their families. --female counselor in Lynnwood, Washington.

Art Therapy, including Soul Collage, a form of art therapy
-- female counselor in Renton, Washington.
Art making, creative self-expression and play are all natural forms of human communication and language. Art Therapy invites the client to use this "language" to express and heal from their emotional burdens. Art gives "voice" to more of the client's experience than just their words alone. Materials available: a large range of fine art & craft supplies, play therapy supplies, full sand tray, figurines, puppets, stuffed animals, games and music. -- female counselor in Edmonds, Washington.

You do not have to be an artist to engage art therapy, only a curiosity and a willingness to explore and express. -- female counselor in West area of Seattle, Washington.
Art Therapy. I am a registered Art Therapist and received my Master's Degree in Psychology AND Art Therapy. Many of my clients are terrified when first offered art materials during a session or that their art making will not be aesthetically pleasing or even fear using materials they have never used before. It is completely normal to feel nervous...most of us stopped making art when we were very young, thus our artwork will often reflect the age at which we ceased creating art in our lives.
Art therapy is a way to get images out of your head and on to paper (or other mediums) which might allow you to better process troubling emotions, point to aspects of your thoughts, and open new methods of how to communicate about things that are difficult to talk about. Art therapy can actually be relaxing! Making art may stimulate areas in your brain that increase the feelings of relaxation.
Art therapy is NOT only for children. Art Therapy helps children and adults alike express things that might be difficult to talk about. Many people are afraid that the finished product in an art therapy session will be judged. In fact, it is the PROCESS of creating the art piece that is so important. NO formal art training is required and stick figures are welcome! -- female counselor in Burien, Washington.

Buddhist Contemplative Psychotherapy --Therapist
Contemplative psychotherapy is a blend of
classical psychology and Buddhist psychology. It does not require an interest in
Buddhism or meditation. There is a basic belief that the individual is inherently
good. There is an emphasis on present moment experiences rather than relying on
past experiences alone. It is a "here and now" therapy that cultivates mindfulness
and awareness. Clients develop mental skills that they can continue to use long
after therapy is completed.
