Raina Cowan is not currently accepting new clients.
My therapy approach is to first find out what the client is seeking from therapy, and if they have prior experiences with therapy or art therapy. Then we can set the course, and shape it to meet their needs. I give assignments in between sessions to help clients gain confidence getting where they want to be when they leave therapy. After all, the work of living is not done in a therapy office, so life skills need to be practiced and honed outside of therapy. My work is informed by a combination of cognitive behavioral, relational/feminist, client centered and psycho-dynamic therapy, but not limited by these frameworks.
I have 18 + years experience in community mental health. I'm equally versed in talk therapy and art therapy. I specialize in working with people experiencing depression, anxiety, adjustment and life transitions, emerging adults, creative block, reproductive issues (infertility, miscarriage /recurrent pregnancy loss), adoption and parenting.
I believe that self expression is necessary for emotional health. Art therapy can help people express themselves when words fail. No prior art experience is needed. Art therapy helps people tap into areas of the brain that promote creative thinking and problem solving. Healing, increased self-awareness and growth follow.
