Hi!

I’m Kathryn.

I know how isolating it can feel to experience stressful or traumatic events on your own, and so often, we feel like a burden on our loved ones for turning to them for support. It is my mission to help you process difficult experiences in a safe environment, so you can grow, heal, and start to feel like yourself again.

I view therapy as a deeply collaborative process that focuses on you and your needs. This is a very personal journey and the healing space we create together should help you move confidently in the direction of health and healing that feels right for you.

my story

 

I have enjoyed art my entire life, both observing the art making process, viewing the final products, and creating art for myself. Within my own artistic journey I was also able to tap into the healing and meaning making that occurs within the creative process, a form of healing that I believed should be shared with others. Aware of my various interests, a high school teacher of mine recommended I read a book on art therapy, as  he believed it would combine my passions and my different academic interests. In that moment I knew I had found my calling and my future.

In graduate school, my internship experiences and coursework reinforced my passion for the field of art therapy, and helped me to develop my clinical identity. Here I developed a strong interest in working with individuals who need additional tools and support to overcome trauma and stress in their lives. As I began the work I quickly realized that trauma and stress impact all of us to some degree, altering the way feel think, feel, and interact with the world around us. Without proper support trauma can create a heavy burden that is hard to carry, but within support lies the potential for safety, empowerment, and healing. My desire to do this work has continued throughout my professional career  and has led me to pursue additional trauma-specific treatment certifications.

individual therapy for stress and trauma

Therapy may be right for you if you’ve experienced a recent traumatic incident or an old trauma has been triggered by new stress, life transition, media/news event, etc. You may be noticing changes in mood, relationships, appetite, and sleep. You may be noticing difficulty coping with “normal” things the way you used to, and you may not feel like yourself.

If any of the above describe you, click the button below to schedule a free, 15-minute consultation to get started.

Individual therapy starts with a 50-minute intake session.The intake session is valuable as it gives you the opportunity to learn more about art therapy and the therapy process, and allows us to get to know each other. After intake, it is recommended that we meet weekly for at least the first 4-6 weeks. This allows us to begin identifying and working towards your therapeutic goals. Throughout the process we will determine what combination of interventions and modalities (including art therapy and counseling) will best support your goals and your growth.
