Dorolyn Alper, MA, ATR-BC, LPC | Alaska Art Therapy & Counseling

Telehealth Services: Yes

Serves: Adults, children, teens, and families

Specialties: Childhood behavior problems; Parenting challenges; Anxiety; Depression; Trauma; Substance use disorders

Modalities and training: Art therapy

Insurance and payment details: Preferred provider for Premera Blue Cross, Aetna and many EAP programs; Self-pay available. Dorolyn bills insurance directly: Tricare, Aetna, BlueCross.

Other comments: Evening hours available. Dorolyn is a registered and board certified art therapist. When words alone are not enough, there is art. Art therapy is a form of counseling that uses art making within the therapeutic relationship to help provide insight and find new ways to solve problems. Many times, therapeutic art making can help resolve problems quicker by uncovering core issues and their accompanying solutions. People who are hesitant to talk or people who are highly verbally defended may benefit from participation in art therapy. Art therapy can be an enjoyable way to participate in counseling. Using art making within family therapy can give all participants a voice.

As of April 2021, I will be a facilitator of Trauma Center-Trauma Sensitive Yoga which is an adjunctive treatment for complex trauma. This will be available as an additional part of the psychotherapy sessions.

 

Currently offering telehealth sessions or in-person, socially distant sessions.

Michelle Beaulieu, LCSW | Rebel Heart Healing

Accepting new clients? My practice is currently full, and has reverted to telehealth only. Although my waitlist is currently capped, as I evaluate whether I might be able to get you in at some point in the future it always helps me to know pragmatics like your Monday-Friday 10-6 availability for standing weekly sessions, your insurance, and what in particular about my practice you are drawn to.

Telehealth Services: Yes

Serves: Adults; Couples

Specialties: Anxiety; Trauma; Relationship difficulties; LGBTQ issues; Spiritual unfolding

Specializes in serving Veterans? No

Modalities and training: My training includes an advanced fellowship in Clinical Social Work at the University of Michigan Department of Psychiatry, and a fellowship with the Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute. I practice from a mindfulness-based frame, incorporating elements of Internal Family Systems, Polyvagal theory, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I also have extensive training in psychodynamic therapy, and use an adapted form of Sue Johnson’s Emotion Focused Therapy with couples. I tend to work in an experiential, embodied way and find that helping you befriend your nervous system and bring compassionate presence to neglected parts can be truly transformative. 

 

Insurance and payment details: I am in network with Blue Cross Blue Shield and bill them directly. For other insurance providers,  I will work with you to bill insurance. At this time I am not able to process secondary insurance but will give you a superbill if you would like to seek reimbursement through your secondary insurer.

Other comments:  If you are a potential client, and email me your interest, it helps me to know how you plan to pay for treatment (i.e. if you plan to use insurance, and if so what your insurance is) and what your weekday availability is (between 10 and 6 pm). Some evening hours available. Currently offering telehealth sessions only, with plans to return to office sessions on a case-by-case basis beginning the week of 3/22. I am not taking new couples cases through telehealth at this time.

Sarah Shaddy-Farnsworth (She/Her), LCSW

Accepting new clients? 

Serves: Adults; Teens; Children 0-12

Specialties: Anxiety; Depression; Trauma and abuse; Grief; Child-parent attachment; Life transitions.

Specializes in serving Veterans? No

Offers substance use recovery services? No

Modalities and training: 

 I practice from a relational and psychodynamic orientation but treatment is collaborative and often includes cognitive, mindfulness-based, and play therapy approaches as the therapeutic environment is co-constructed. I draw upon my training in trauma, attachment, and reflective practice, to encourage subjective creation of meaning, improved interpersonal relationships, and self-understanding. I offer techniques to manage flooding emotions and improve self-regulation. I work with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, trauma and abuse, grief, child-parent attachment, and life transitions.

 

My training includes Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, Sensory Motor Arousal Regulation Therapy (S.M.A.R.T), the Attachment, Self-Regulation, and Competency (ARC) Framework, as well as several cognitive behavioral models for addressing trauma reactions in adults and children. I have trained in Child-Parent Psychotherapy (2019-2021) and am completing final requirements to apply for rostering as a CPP therapist.

Insurance and payment details: Aetna/EBMS, Blue Cross Blue Shield/Premera, TriCare

Comments:  My theoretical approach is grounded in relational psychodynamic psychotherapy as well as attachment theory, interpersonal neurobiology, and training in reflective practice. The most central idea in my work is that we are each uniquely shaped by social interactions beginning in early childhood and continuing throughout life. These interactions and experiences help to shape our neurobiology, how we see ourselves, and our relationship to others and the world. A safe exploratory relationship is central to my approach to psychotherapy, allowing you to improve nervous system regulation and express thoughts and feelings you have trouble expressing elsewhere, including thoughts and feelings you’ve struggled to allow yourself to fully know. Through deeper awareness and understanding of our internal processes-including somatic experiences and sensations-and emotional life we can experience a greater range of options for responding to challenges and freedom from patterned relating that contributes to feeling stuck.
