Eileen Van Tyne
- Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist
Master of Arts, Counseling Psychology
I work with individuals experiencing burnout, loneliness and blocked creativity in Marin and Berkeley. Maybe you’re experiencing apathy, hopelessness, overwhelm, negative self-talk or straight-up rebellion from your body. Being a human in these times is not for the faint of heart. Therapy can help. Working together, we can identify strengths you have, patterns you’d like to change and the resources to help sustain you.
I create a space for you to explore, breathe, relax, create, use metaphor, and get weird and playful to find answers and healing.
I earned my master’s degree in counseling psychology in the expressive arts program at the California Institute of Integral Studies. Before joining Grateful Heart, I worked as an expressive arts therapist intern at Contra Costa Regional Medical Center, a group and individual counselor at the Oakland Adult Rehabilitation Center, and a group facilitator for children experiencing grief at Circle of Care in Oakland.
I’ve also worked as a designer, consultant, and manager in tech and corporate jobs. During this time, I began drawing again and using movement as a way to remain creative and connected to myself while working from home. Because of this I have a soft spot for creative weirdos earning a living in tech and corporate environments.
Our work together will focus on your strengths and current coping strategies, homing in on what’s working and what’s not. I bring analytical clarity, a nonjudgmental attitude, and intuition to each session. I collaborate with you to determine your goals and tune in and respect what is needed in the moment.
Therapy using expressive arts does not require artistic experience or skill.
I work with and listen to your levels of comfort around different methods of expression so that you feel engaged and not overwhelmed. I tailor creative approaches to what will work for you. But mainly I welcome and encourage you to get a little weird in our sessions. We all have a natural appetite for play and creative expression and not enough chances to engage in them.
