About the Instructor

Brittany Raffle, LPC will be leading the workshop. Brittany believes that art, music, and nature can be the greatest healers, which is why she uses these aspects in therapy to help others be open to discovering parts of themselves through these untraditional practices. Brittany believes that each client has the ability to be their best self and that everyone’s journey with life looks different. She views therapy as a guide for getting through life’s challenges and as a place to grow in order to use skills in daily life, even after therapy.
