Career Spotlight: Art Therapy
Gretchen Miller MA, ATR-BC, ACTP
Registered Board Certified Art Therapist | Advanced Certified Trauma Practitioner
Art Therapy is…
The deliberate therapeutic
use of art to meet
psychological needs,
provided by an art
therapist.
An alternative means of
communication that uses
art media, art-making, the
creative process, and
client responses as a
reflection of an individual
and their experiences.
“Art therapy is the therapeutic use of art making, by
people who experience illness, trauma, or
challenges in living, and by people who seek
personal development. Through creating art and
reflecting on the art products and processes,
people can increase awareness of self and
others, cope with symptoms, stress, and
traumatic experiences; enhance cognitive
abilities; and enjoy the life affirming pleasures of
making art.”
~American Art Therapy Association | arttherapy.org
Art Therapists are:
Master level mental health
professionals trained in the
use of art and media, as well
as psychological and
counseling approaches.
Art therapists work with a
