Due to the Coronavirus epidemic, I am doing only telemental therapy from my Lopez Island office.  New telemental health services will be solely for adults. The insurance companies that I am an in-network provider for cover telemental health services.

I also provide an individual, single

COVID-19 Self-quarantine Coaching Session

I regret that I cannot take any new child clients at this time.

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.

My approach is client-centered, and strengths-based. In addition to my Masters in Counseling, I have specialized training in Art Therapy, CBT+ (for children with PTSD), Jungian-oriented psychotherapy, Play Therapy and Sandplay, and Telemental Health Therapy . 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 Bereavement (Grief and Loss), Trauma Recovery, 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.

I serve residents of North Whidbey Island, Orcas Island, San Juan Island, and Skagit County. For established clients I provide telemental health through the Doxy.me a medical teleconferencing platform. With the exception of Mandala Creation sessions, at this time I do not see residents of Lopez Island.

"To the extent that I managed to translate the emotions into images -- that is to say, to find the images which were concealed in the emotions -- I was inwardly calmed and reassured."  

-- C. G. Jung
