Kristen Rashid (she/her) is a Registered and Board-Certified art therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor, holding a master’s degree in creative arts therapy from Drexel University.
Kristen has been part of a private practice called Parent to Child for over a decade, offering art therapy for individual children and their families, for teens and adults, and for small groups. Clients come to Kristen for support in navigating through a range of issues, including generalized anxiety, social anxiety, adjustments, divorce, grief/loss, behavior difficulties, depression, and anger.
Kristen meets clients where they are and helps them engage in the creative process of making art as a way to express themselves, increase insight, spark change, make connections, and develop coping and problem-solving skills. Fostering a positive therapeutic relationship and a supportive space for communication and growth is an important part of her approach with every client and family she works with.
Kristen’s experience includes providing art therapy services for children and youth of all ages in a variety of outpatient and school-based settings and for adults in both inpatient and outpatient settings. While she has experience serving clients from ages 3 to 95, the majority of her clinical work has been with children ages 5-14 and their families.
Kristen Rashid is a member of the American Art Therapy Association (AATA) and the Pennsylvania Art Therapy Association (PAATA), serving as the Archivist on the PAATA Board of Directors.
