Art Therapy

What's an art therapy session like?

Typically, when you arrive, we’ll talk for about 15 minutes about how you’ve been since we last met and what’s on your mind today. Then you’ll do an art task, followed by about 15 minutes of discussion about the art and how it relates to the issues that brought you to therapy.

What if I'm not good at art?

You don’t need talent or training. Just like you might like singing in the car or karaoke – even if you “can’t” sing – there are benefits to making art, like expressing difficult feelings, that go beyond making something you want to hang on a wall – although sometimes that happens too.

What do you do with my art?

The artwork belongs to you. I will take a photo of it as therapy documentation. I encourage you to take completed artwork home.

What art materials will we use in your office?

I keep a selection of materials for drawing, painting, collage and sculpture. Over the course of therapy we will use different materials and techniques.

There are many considerations for decisions about materials. I’ll support you by offering suggestions and, if needed, guidance on how to use materials.

What art materials do I need for telehealth?

Basic supplies are at least 2 drawing materials (examples: crayons, colored pencils, markers) and white drawing paper (or plain printer paper).

There are advantages to having additional materials. Other suggestions include: chalk pastels, watercolors or other paints, different kinds of art paper (construction, tissue), glue, scissors.

You might already have suitable materials, and there are always opportunities to repurpose, like using cardboard from boxes.

We can discuss best options based on your needs.


How often would we meet?

I recommend weekly when starting therapy. Extended intervals between sessions can make it harder to develop a connection. However, frequency can change over the course of treatment.

Ultimately, session frequency is determined individually based on your needs.

How long should I expect to be in therapy?

This can vary widely. Some people want a few sessions while others want ongoing therapy. Please ask if you’d like recommendations based on your specific needs.

Do you do psychological testing?

No. If you need psychological testing, I can try to link you to a qualified psychologist.

Do you write letters for gender-affirming care?

Yes, I write letters to support name changes and gender-affirming medical care for clients who are in ongoing therapy.

Do you prescribe medication?

No, I cannot prescribe.

If you’re interested in medication, I’ll help link you to a prescriber who’s accepting new patients. For medication, my role is supportive. We can discuss your feelings about and interest in medication at any time.

Do you write letters for emotional support animals?

I don’t offer letters for emotional support animals.
