About Wren Douglass-Robinson
Much like who we are and how we experience the world is unique, self-expression can take limitless forms. By tapping into the creative parts of ourselves, we can learn more about what makes us unique and powerful. Wren honors that each client is the expert of their own life, and as such, seeks to co-create a space for growth and self-efficacy in the therapeutic process. Wren believes that everyone can benefit from the practice of art making.
