Mental Health and Creative Arts Therapy

Serena Appel, LPC, LAT Associate

I help those who are searching for a creative solution to life's challenges, and are open to or seeking somatic and process-based therapy, in addition to talk therapy. I enjoy working with people from many different cultures/subcultures and walks of life, who are seeking help with existential issues, life events, mental health challenges and more.


I strive to create a welcoming, comfortable atmosphere where you can feel safe sharing your concerns, and supported in exploring and engaging with self-discovery, learning and insight.

My practice is centered in Art Therapy and Expressive Arts, including the use of fine art media, creative journaling, movement, rhythm, guided imagery and more. During sessions, we may make use of the Studio Main Workshop space, tools and supplies; we may meet in a private office space, or a combination of the two.


I may also add mind-body, spiritual, trauma-informed, or more conventional therapeutic techniques. My eclectic approach is tailored to your needs and wishes in developing plans and sessions.

I currently offer sessions for teens aged 12 and up, adults, and couples. I also periodically offer creative therapy groups through the Studio - see the Events page for more information.

I accept private pay, Medicaid/OHP, and most major insurances. I can help verify insurance benefits for new clients who have a scheduled intake appointment.
