 THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO CREATE CHANGE AND SPARK HEALING AND GROWTH

I have a MA or Masters degree in Psychology, a Post-Masters Certification in Art Therapy, am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington state (LMHC) and a trained Hypnotherapist (CHT). I assist people in identifying what they want from life and relationships and in developing action plans with support to follow through with them. Helping clients overcome problems or self-defeating life patterns, increase awareness, improve communication, clarify thoughts, feelings, and values often leads people to feel more confident and flexible in the lives they wish to live.

My approach to Counseling/Therapy and Coaching offers you effective strategies to overcome problems and life patterns that are uncomfortable or ineffective. Your strengths, your resources and your unique view of the world are my focus. I believe you will find a safe, warm, trustworthy, empowering and encouraging an environment for healing, personal growth and effective resolution of specific problems.

Utilizing a collaborative Narrative and Solution-Focused approach to therapy in combination with Cognitive Behavioral, Jungian, Gestalt and Hypnotherapy techniques, I often integrate Counseling or “Talk” Therapy, Life and Relationship Coaching with Art and Photo Therapy and Voice Dialogue Facilitation. I offer Counseling/Therapy and Life and Relationship Coaching in-person as well as virtually via Zoom/Skype/Phone.

I love helping people with relationship issues, improving communication so you are effective and harmonious, helping you date successfully, gain self-mastery of your thoughts, feelings and actions, de-clutter/get organized and enjoy life!

    ART and PHOTO THERAPY

    ART SAVES LIVES!

    I offer a place for people to gain new insights, explore perspectives and options, resolve problems and enhance skills to better cope with the challenges in their lives. Our work might involve using images, photos, videos and writing as vehicles for self-expression, increased awareness and improved communication. It is often hard to find words for our inner feelings, our emotions, fears, and experiences. Art materials from pencils and magic markers to paint, photos and videos (or even Pastry Therapy™) can give form to these concepts, lead to greater awareness and self-esteem, clarify values and beliefs and create new perspectives and choices.

    Making art and tapping into the creative process can be a powerful way to express your thoughts and feelings. It can be calming, lead to focus and integrate polarities, as well as assist in expanding options and facilitating decision-making, risk-taking and getting unstuck and clear. No previous art experience is needed. As a Registered Board Certified Art Therapist (ATR-BC) and SoulCollage® Facilitator, I have seen time and time again how rewarding the creative process can be and that the experience is most often more important than the end product. I offer Art, Photo and Video Therapy In-Person as well as Virtually via my Video Office or Phone

      FIND THE ANSWERS WITHIN

      Hypnosis is a heightened state of awareness in which concentration becomes highly focused. In this relaxed, suggestive state the benefits can be accelerated learning and reduction in symptoms such as addictions, physical pain, debilitating mood or emotional patterns and reactions to trauma. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. The client is always in charge and I validate the fact that all the “answers” are within the client. Hypnosis is a natural state of mind that humans experience often in their lives (one familiar example is “highway hypnosis”).

      Self-hypnosis has huge potential for empowering people to increase control and make changes in their lives. I am a Certified Hypnotherapist (CHT) and trained in EMDR. I offer Hypnotherapy In-Person as well as Virtually via Zoom/Skype/Phone

          SoulCollage® is an investment in yourself!
          SoulCollage® is a creative and transformative process for accessing your intuition and creating one or more cards or a whole deck of cards with deep personal meaning that can help you with life’s questions and transitions. This is a rich, multi-leveled, rewarding process which anyone can do. The process begins as simple creative fun, but will very likely surprise and awaken you! Learn and explore how to access your intuition, increase your self-awareness and create cards with deep personal meaning, as well as discover the power of speaking from your cards and witnessing others’ share their process. Cards can be used in a variety of ways including “readings” of various forms. They contain the images you select — or the images that select you — and often come straight through your Soul, bypassing the mind. Seena frost, founder and “birth mother” of this process, developed it by combining her passions for spirituality, psychotherapy and creativity. She has stated, “It is a tangible way to know yourself in your diversity and depth, and also to show yourself to others. Showing your deck of SoulCollage® cards to another person can be a profound experience.”
          A SoulCollage® deck is the story of you and is worth reading!

          Sharon Sanborn is a Certified SoulCollage® Facilitator and will support you in creating your first card, creating your own deck of SoulCollage® cards, sharing about your cards, experiencing a reading of your cards and getting meaning and healing out of the SoulCollage® process. More information at www.SoulCollage.com
