Carey DeMartini received her Master’s in Mental Health Counseling with a specialization in Art Therapy from Antioch University Seattle in 2002. She became a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) by the state of Washington in 2006 and has been a Board Certified Art Therapist (ATR-BC) since 2007. In addition to her training in mental health counseling and art therapy, Carey is also trained in yoga instruction and yoga therapy. She has worked in the mental health field in a variety of settings. She is grateful for a wide range of experiences in working with people of all ages individually and in groups facing together life transitions, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, multicultural issues, stress management, trauma, addictions, and eating disorders. Carey works collaboratively with her clients. She believes it is important to listen to her clients’ goals and intentions for coming to therapy, explore past experiences as they relate to their situation, and problem-solve in a non-judgmental, safe, and compassionate therapeutic environment. Her theoretical approach to therapy is eclectic and guided by psychodynamic and humanistic theories as well as person-centered, strengths-based and mindfulness practices. Foundationally, she believes in each person's intrinsic capacity to learn, heal, grow, and thrive.
