Celia J Gagnon, LCAT, ATR-BC

Preferred Name: Celia

About Me

I’m a psychotherapist; California trained in Marriage and Family Therapy, Art Therapy and Career Counseling and licensed in the state of New York. I use contemplative talk combined with creative expressions (such as collage, pen to paper, paint, clay, photography, etc.): a place where words sometimes cannot go. I've also received certificate training in Grief Therapy (University of Wisconsin), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Response) and FT (Flash Technique) therapies. I’ve lived many years in both the west and the east. I look forward to our first conversation, where we can decide the next steps.

Education & Experience

NY State licensed & Nationally Board Certified Art Therapist; MA Marriage, Family & Art therapy (Notre Dame de Namur University, Belmont, CA). I've worked with immigrant families, children, adolescents, adults and seniors living in various states across the country. I work with mental health needs such as: emerging identities, phobias, addictions, relationship discord, traumas, life transitions such as aging, illness, financial stressors and childbirth.
