Practice Description: River Crossing Art Therapy Counseling provides counseling, art therapy, and personal growth opportunites for adults in a safe, comfortable, nonjudgemental setting. I believe that every individual has latent potential that art therapy counseling can help to realize. I use art therapy techniques in conjunction with mindfulness, solution-focused therapy, and positive psychology, in addition to my foundational training in psychodynamic psychotherapy. Artistic skills or talents are NOT necessary to benefit from art therapy.

Practice Specialty: I use art therapy with clients who are struggling with depression and anxiety, managing transitions, grief and loss, truama, conflict, low self-esteem, relationship issues, or are otherwise blocked from moving forward in life. The integration of psychotherapy and the creative process helps clients to achieve insight into new or long-standing problems and continue developing as adults.

Age Specialties: My clients are adults age 18 and over
Session Format: River Crossing offers individual, group, and workshop sessions. Individual sessions are 75 minutes, while groups generally include one 2-hour session per week for six weeks. One-day workshops are offered quarterly. Contact me or check my website for current groups and workshops.
Years In Practice: 5
Office Hours: M-Th. Evenings also possible.
Fee: $100 for 75 minute individual session; $35 per 2-hour group session as part of 6-week series ($210 total); $125 for 1-day workshop.
Accepted Insurance Plan(s): River Crossing does not bill insurance, but offers a limited sliding scale to help make services affordable for those with limited incomes.
