When you or a loved one are in pain, it can be a confusing emotional experience for everyone involved. It’s hard to know how to move forward – to heal and feel whole again.

Here to There Therapy provides high quality and personalized mental health care, parent coaching, parent education, consultation, and clinical supervision services. Working together and with other care providers, we offer integrated care for each member of the family.

We work collaboratively with children, teens, families, and individuals to overcome life’s challenges in a nurturing, safe environment. We’ll help you move from where you are to where you want to be.

Together, we will identify your personal strengths, and use those strengths to help you achieve your mental health goals. We believe creating change in any one member of the family creates positive changes in the family as a whole.

Sometimes the hardest task is to ask for help. When you are ready, we are here to support you every step of the way from Here to There.

Linda Holt Ayriss: (206) 714-0450   Linda@HereToThereTherapy.com

As a licensed marriage and family therapist and art therapist, I enjoy working with children, adolescents, couples and families in a collaborative process to explore concerns and challenges that have arisen in their lives.

I work from a strength-based, family oriented perspective. I utilize opportunities to reframe negative family dynamics and emphasize positive strengths to find the possibility of hope.

In addition to traditional therapy, sessions may also include art therapy, as I have often found this helpful when words alone may not be enough to express difficult thoughts and feelings. All ages and abilities can benefit from art therapy. As one elderly client described this experience, “This is not painting class, it’s art for the mind.” The process of creating art can be healing in itself. Creating art can become a pathway to self-discovery, identity, and increased self-esteem.

My experience includes helping children and families who struggle with anxiety, depression, ADHD, grief and loss, trauma, identity formation, relationship conflicts, and difficult life transitions. I also work closely with parents and schools to advocate for children and teens with educational, behavioral and emotional needs, such as IEP’s and 504 plans.  I have used art therapy to help with elders living with dementia to create significant gains in mood, memory, and cognition.

I believe in fostering a supportive connection between thoughts and feelings to create the possibilities for insight, hope and positive change.
