I'm Kathryn Snell-Ryan, a Licensed Professional Counselor, nationally registered Art Therapist, EMDR clinician, mother of two, ceramic artist, traveler, and sincere encourager of living well. I've been a therapist for 18 years - from Chicago where I earned my graduate degree, back home to the Southern US for several years, and finally now rooted in Oregon since 2009.
My commitment to helping people find or re-discover their sense of creativity, joy, balance, and self-worth runs deep. As a busy parent, business owner, and creative thinker, I am keenly aware of just how challenging it is to stay present in our lives, stay connected to those and what we love most, and to feel organized and in control of our days/weeks/months. The pace at which we're expected to live, work, and parent can often feel like an absolute set-up for failure. And in many ways, IT IS. Identifying our core values and true priorities helps lead the way back to a saner, more present lifestyle. So we begin there. I look forward to hearing your story.
