Trained at the New School in New York City, I have been also working as an art therapist for the past 22 years. Using art as a tool for self exploration can be fascinating. I work in helping people explore their inner world and then have the opportunity to translate that material into works of art. Often we find ourselves in places of darkness and the art process, when used in conjunction with psychotherapy, can bring Light. Art as therapy allows for new breakthroughs, a release of stuck places and a new way to look at oneself.
