Welcome! I am so glad you're here. I am an Art Therapist and Professional Counselor who integrates a passion for creativity and a passion for people into an art therapy practice that supports clients seeking to be more closely aligned within themselves. My therapeutic and creative work reflect a deep care and honoring for experiences of living "in-between": at the intersections of multiple identities, during momentous life transitions, and at the inevitable and often profound crossroads of each individual's unique healing journey.
Therapy with me is warm, client-centered, and strengths-based; sessions are always "come-as-you-are." My practice is intentionally anti-oppressive and social-justice allied (anti-racist, LGBTQIA+ and Neurodiversity affirming, HAES-informed, etc.). I am committed to learning from and standing with clients from all backgrounds.
Art therapy makes space to connect to the healer within, deepen understanding of strengths and needs, and bring clarity to paths ahead. I believe in therapy that is co-created, emboldened by trust and commitment on the part of both therapist and client. Although beginning is always the hardest part, I am ready to meet you at YOUR start, wherever that may be.
Take the first step to help. Claire Kalala now
