Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Are you an expert on (fill in the blank)?
A: I am not an expert on any topic. I am, however, educated at a Masters level as an Art Therapist, certified in Clay Field Therapy, and informed around theoretical underpinnings and practical applications regarding trauma work, attachment & self regulation theory, keenly interested in and informed by best practice in the field.
Q: Do I have to pay for the first session, or the intake?
A: Full payment is required for the first session, which can be used as an intake session or simply a time to see if we are a good fit. I do offer some time on the phone before a first session so that we can get a sense of fit also.
Q: Do I have to be an "artist" to do art therapy?
A: No, you don't, in fact, it might even be helpful to not have technical skill in art while doing art therapy. This way of working is process not product focused. Having said that, if you are a technically skilled artist, art therapy can still be helpful for you.
