Art Therapy Education.
Art Therapists must go through extensive training in art therapy application technique classes and mental health curriculum. A 60 credit Masters level art therapy graduate training program is required to become an art therapist. Over 1000 hours of art therapy client contact and 150 hours of supervision must be obtained to become registered as an art therapist. Board Certification is obtained by passing the national art therapy board certification exam. Registration and board certification is regulated by the Art Therapy Credentials Board. http://www.atcb.org/
With over 17 years of experience working with for profit and non profit organizations. My approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help organizations effectively address their clients needs. I integrate complementary methodologies and art therapy techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each organization. With compassion and understanding, I work with each company/service organization to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing for their staff or clients.
