Tanya Vallianos, MA, LPC, ATR, NCC, EMDR III, EAP II

As a licensed professional counselor, registered art therapist and certified equine-assisted counselor in Northern Colorado, it has been my pleasure to have counseled children, teens, adults, and seniors in various settings/agencies since 1998. I have been in private practice since 2003 and have guided clients through many different issues, including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, life transitions, chronic illness, women's isues, trauma backgrounds, spiritual crises, and relationship issues.

In addition to my private practice, I am the co-founder of The Expressive Arts Program at McKee Medical Center in Loveland, CO where I facilitate a weekly art therapy group in the Cancer Center for cancer patients, cancer survivors, and family members. I also conduct weekly art therapy sessions at bedside with patients within the Medical Center.

Services An integrative perspective, utilizing a blend of both eastern and western philosophy/modalities, guides my work. Using art as therapy with mindfulness, visualization and body-centered practices (i.e. EMDR, Somatic Experiencing), as well as equine-assisted psychotherapy, allows clients to engage on all levels, body, mind, and spirit.

My approach is warm gentle, and compassionate, as well as informative, direct and practical. I work with each person as an individual creating a therapeutic environment that is unique to that person's needs. The office setting is comfortable and inviting. My clients' report that our work together allows them to connect more deeply to themselves and others, to communicate their thoughts and feelings more effectively and clearly with others, to find more stability and joy in their lives through the reduction of negative effects, such as accute and chronic anxiety and depression, and to experience greater self-worth and self-confidence.
