What will my first session be like?

Your first session (online or in-person) will focus on creating an environment where we explore with different tools, ask questions and build relationship and see how art therapy fits for you. I offer an Introductory Session at reduced rate that is a great place to start: Intro Session

How often should I come? 

This depends on your goals. I recommend weekly sessions to begin so we can set a strong foundation to launch from then transition to every two weeks for slower sustained progress and monthly for maintenance. Some clients transition after reaching their goals to reconnecting during times of need or stress.
