Art Therapist (ATR)

Art Therapy, Communication, and Mental Health

What inspired you to start your journey as an art therapist?

Since I was in middle school, my mind was set that I was going to be a therapist. I was fascinated with the mind, how it works, and functions. I wasn’t aware of Art Therapy until my junior year of undergraduate school, and that is when I shifted.

Can you define art therapy for the readers?

It is a specialized form of therapy that incorporates art materials and the creative art making process.
