As an artist, art therapist and art educator, originally from the Midwestern United States, Catherine has lived nearly half her adult life teaching, learning and creating art abroad, primarily in Asia and Europe.
Her extensive background in teaching and learning in diverse cultural contexts, over several decades, makes her uniquely situated to adapt methods, theories and techniques to meet individual client needs. As an art therapist, her mission is to guide others to wellness through creative self-expression and the development of a creative voice. Drawing upon the creative arts, she works with clients to develop skills for addressing the psychological, developmental, emotional and social stressors that affect health and well-being. By engaging in a process of art and creation, followed by reflection, clients can experience the revelatory power of art in a safe and gentle environment. With a BA in Visual Arts, an MA in education and an MSAT in counseling/art therapy Catherine strives to bring the healing power of art into the fabric of her life and the lives of those around her. Catherine currently has memberships in the American Art Therapy Association, Wisconsin Art Therapy Association, Art Therapy Alliance, and the International Expressive Arts Association.
