My Approach to Helping
Finding healing and purpose is a difficult + daunting task. Where do we even start? How do we ask for help? Maybe you feel that you shouldn’t need help or that you don’t deserve it. Maybe you’ve spent a lifetime saying, “I’m fine,” but you feel lost + stuck. Especially when you know there are healthy parts inside of you longing to be expressed, but you just can’t seem to figure out how to reconnect with them. We're here to create a map with you, to be a guide on this journey of healing.

More Info About My Practice
Our approach to the practice of psychotherapy is holistic. All of you is welcome, just as you are. Together we will work collaboratively to enhance your ability to get your needs met, make choices with more awareness, and support yourself through life’s uncertainty. This process includes assisting you in tuning in to your body, beliefs, and unfulfilling patterns in order to increase your ability to stay present with your shifting experience – where so much of our wisdom lives.
Our therapists are: Cris (she-they), Autumn (she-her), Lavender (they-them), and Christine (she-her) and we offer psychotherapy to children-adolescents, adults, and couples.
Cris Fort Garcés, LCAT, Clinical Director & Intake Coordinator, has been practicing for 15 years and works with adults around anxiety, depression, significant life changes, and transitions.
Christine Nasol, LCAT, works with adults, adolescents, and children to help them navigate anxiety, challenging transitions, life events, and depression. Christine's area's of expertise are using the combination of talk therapy with art and sound making to get to the core of our issues, which sometimes words alone cannot reach.
Autumn Potter, LCAT, works with couples, children-adolescents, and adults who struggle to feel safe expressing their authentic selves and voices. Her other areas of expertise are working with young adults in navigating cultural expectations and beliefs around adulthood and helping parents navigate parenthood.
Lavender Roland Waring, LCAT, works with couples and adults and focuses on people who have experienced trauma and-or abuse, are dealing with depression & anxiety, need assistance navigating non-monogamous relationships, and want to explore gender identity & sexuality.
We blend Somatic, Gestalt, and Creative arts therapy to generate a dynamic, holistic, and experiential therapy that focuses on your present moment experience and encourages our natural movement toward creativity, spontaneity, and growth. Sometimes "thinking" or "talking" about problems is not enough, and a deeper level of experience and creativity is needed to get to the heart of a difficult situation.
Alongside talk therapy, we help people connect to their inner resources by bringing attention to how their bodies and emotions mix with their beliefs and thoughts. We’ll uncover the patterns, habits, beliefs, and blocks contributing to stress and interfering with your satisfaction. By using the creative process with an emphasis on the here and now, you can find a supportive environment to heal within yourself. Clients often find that the creative and experiential process gets to the essence of what's happening and promotes self-awareness, esteem, and insight.
Creative Now Therapy is a name inspired by the power of the present moment and how important this mode and way of being is in life and in therapy. It is a reminder for the therapists here at Creative Now Therapy to always return to this place as a way to heal, be, and explore.
