Welcome to the psychotherapy office of Sheila Simpson-Creps.
At times in our lives we may find that the pain of events is seemingly more than one can handle, and life questions are too great. During these passages, healing and stress reduction can be aided through a therapeutic alliance with a mental health counselor. As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I listen to, and witness your story. I provide a safe and confidential environment to explore those issues which most challenge you or your child. It is an honor for me to provide counseling services for those seeking healing and an increase in the quality of their lives.
is client-centered, and strengths-based. In addition to my Masters in Counseling, I have specialized training in, CBT+ (for children with PTSD), , and , and . I encourage the use of creativity, art and imagination, to explore issues that concern the client. None of these tools are required to be used by clients. If a client is curious about these therapies, no previous skills are required; one simply needs a willingness to explore and play with images.
I provide counseling services for individuals, children ages 5+, and adults. I specialize in , and Stress Reduction. Although I am not an analyst, my therapeutic approach is greatly impacted by the comprehensive work of the eminent analyst Carl. G. Jung. To me, the rapport between therapist and client is the most important aspect of successful psychotherapy.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor practicing in Anacortes, and on Lopez Island, Washington. Child services, Sandplay and Play therapy are available only in the Anacortes office. Adult Art Therapy is available in both offices.
