Welcome to Creative Now Therapy. We offer couples & individual therapy to all ages. Our therapists are Cris - she/they, Autumn - she/her, Lavender - they/them, & Christine - she/her. We are an inclusive practice, with a background in the arts. We are sensitive to the creative process & welcome a wide range of creatives, freelancers, executives, parents, & young adults.

Our integrative approach uses mindfulness, body awareness, & creative interventions to enhance your ability to feel more at ease in the world.

We are trained in talk therapy, art therapy, & body-centered/somatic psychotherapy to help you tap into core issues. We believe through creative interventions & attending to your body that you can generate more understanding of your struggles to enact behavior change and growth.
