You are the expert on your own life. I will collaborate with you as you identify creative strategies to work toward your goals.

 
 

Maybe you feel lonely, sad, worried, or stressed. Maybe you are looking for more of a sense of purpose in your life. Maybe you are feeling stuck and hoping to view yourself or others in a new way. Maybe you care for an aging parent, are coping with the stress of college life, or are grieving the loss of a loved one. Maybe you simply want to feel better about yourself or your relationships. Whatever the reason you are seeking therapy, it can be hard to take the first step in reaching out. When you are ready, I am willing to listen.

The first time we meet together, I will go over policies, talk with you about your reasons for seeking therapy, and identify potential goals as we determine whether we are a good fit.  I will offer creative ways to look at your life and identity in the context of your relationships, culture, and community. I will sit with you when you need to cry, I will laugh with you when you need to laugh, and I will support you as you work toward positive change. To learn more, you can give me a call at 872.216.0658 or email me at HouptArtTherapy@gmail.com.
