Sarah Dawn Elaine Penston, Art Therapist, MS, LPC, ATR, CCPT
I’m not your typical therapist. With me, you get a real person, free from judgement, that genuinely cares about your progress. I am a creative & passionate person both personally and professionally. I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in the state of Virginia as well as a registered art therapist (ATR) and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCPT). I believe in bringing a creative approach to all aspects of life. Art therapy allows me to bridge the gap for those that struggle with verbal expression by offering an alternate form of communication and self-expression to ensure a positive therapeutic experience.
My counseling style is warm and inviting. I work with you to help identify your goals and encourage you to make therapy your own. Each therapeutic journey is personalized and unique to your needs. Areas of experience include anxiety disorders, mood disorders, impulse control disorders, self-harm, parenting skills, trauma, and grief.
I want to help you discover who you are and everything you can become. I want to help you create a life fueled by creativity and passion. Most of all, I want to help you find a side of life and yourself that you love
