About

With 25 years of experience, I utilize verbal and art therapy to help you find your emotional voice whether it be about a current situation that is causing you distress or something from your past or future. We hold on to thoughts, behaviors and feelings that seem too overwhelming to share with others. We fear vulnerability. We run from difficult feelings/thoughts. We feel ashamed of our emotional "baggage". Then, we try to hide under a mask because of shame, fear, and anxiety. But hiding in shame only makes us feel isolated, empty and experience self hatred. We become disconnected from others and our selves.
To promote healing and growth, we will sit through difficult emotions and thoughts until you have a better sense of yourself and self compassion. It is very important for me to create trust so you can feel seen, heard and safe. I will encourage you to express feelings, fears, conflicts, insecurities, memories and reconnect with your body.
You will learn to take off the mask, find inner strengths to bring a sense of connection to yourself and others. We will accomplish insight, self-awareness, compassion, coping strategies, a sense of purpose, connection, and relaxation. I want to help you feel more connected to your life, to remember YOUR truth, dislodge old patterns and reconnect with joy.

Natalie Schrape's Groups

Women's Art Therapy Group

Hello and thank you for your interest. I am hoping to start a Women's Art Psychotherapy Group that would meet twice a month. The group will offer a safe and supportive environment to process thoughts, feelings and ways in which we cope. This group will be a confidential and judgment free zone. Please let me know if you are interested, I will compile a list of potential members and hopefully we can start a group soon. At this time, the group will be virtual. And let's see if we can apply your insurance benefits to help pay the fee.
