About

I focus most of my work on EMDR, Art Therapy, and Sex Therapy. My specialty populations are people within the kink community, people in polyamorous and alternative relationships, and those with trauma backgrounds, people who are LGBTQ+, and women, trans, and nonbinary folks with traumatic backgrounds. I also have many therapists in my practice who offer other specializations and work with other populations. Many of the therapists at FlowArt Therapy are taking new clients. Email me to be matched with a therapist suitable for your needs. Please see my website at www.flowartwa.com I am an Aasect Certified Sex Therapist.
I am a Board Certified Registered Art Therapist (ATR-BC) 19-027. I am a Certified Sex Therapist. I also supervise interns who see clients at reduced rates if needed. I will be taking new Art Therapy clients in-person starting October 2022. I am currently taking telehealth clients immediately.
FlowArt Therapy has therapists diverse in background, practice style, specializations, and populations. Many of the therapists at my practice are taking new clients throughout all of Washington, and you can read their bios at www.flowartwa.com. If you'd like to be matched with a therapist who would be best suited for you, email me. Intern rates start at $40.
