Eztrella is an Art Therapy Intern working towards a Masters in Art Therapy and a certificate in Eco-psychology from Lewis and Clark Graduate School. Ez has received additional training as a Psychosynthesis Life Coach (PLC) from the Synthesis Center San Francisco, and has 7 years of experience as a consulting professional Astrologer.
Ez practices from person-centered, strengths-based, nature-based, transpersonal, existential, and narrative therapy orientations; applying astrology and psychosynthesis and utilizing feminist and queer theories based on individual client needs and goals. Their eco-art therapy treatment approach combines the principles of ecotherapy and art therapy, while the application of psychosynthesis life coaching and astrology enables the exploration of deeper levels of purpose, meaning-making, and conscious manifestation. Through the eco-psychology, nature-based, and astrological lenses, Eztrella incorporates the client’s relationship with the natural world, as well as with natural personal and collective cycles which can help clients navigate through the ebbs and flows of life. Utilizing multi-modal and expressive arts therapy, clients are able to safely explore and express themselves through non-verbal, creative means. Through using the tools of psychosynthesis life coaching, Ez helps clients to focus on personal development and growth, cultivating deeper purpose, bridging personal and transpersonal (spiritual) experiences, and actualizing life goals. Within the initial consultation and intake, we will discuss which methodologies will best suit the client’s treatment goals.
Their focus is the intersection of (queer) identity development, individuals finding their purpose/meaning-making, and strengthening the human-nature bond. Eztrella has a strong interest in working with LGBTQ+, Hispanic/Spanish speaking, Indigenous peoples, and other marginalized client groups, across the lifespan, in individual and group settings.
Eztrella’s goal as a therapist is to reconnect clients with the medicine of nature and creativity, assist clients in multidimensional self-discovery and healing, and (re)empower clients to consciously co-create their most meaningful lives.
