I am a contract art therapist working the the DC Metropolitan area, specializing in memory care issues and the needs of elderly clients. I lead group and individual art therapy sessions for seniors. I have a Master's degree in Art Therapy and am a Licensed Clinical Professional Art Therapist (LCPAT) in the state of Maryland and a Board Certified Art Therapist (ATR-BC) with the Art Therapy Credentials Board (atcb.org). I am also a Certified Dementia Practitioner (CDP) through the National Certification Council for Dementia Practitioners.
In addition to contract art therapy sessions, I have worked for several years providing activities for seniors. I work with residents in facilities or in their homes who experience various cognitive, physical, and emotional needs, including Alzheimer's/dementia and Parkinson's Disease. I am a Certified Activity Director (ADC) and a trained Virtual Dementia Tour facilitator.
