Please note:
After completing master's level graduate work at Lesley College and interning at The University of Vermont I desired to continue my graduate studies in Expressive Arts Therapy. At the time there was not one existent PhD program in the USA on this topic. Fulfilling my LMFT requirements was valuable but did not satiate my desire to learn in hands on way that would serve others. I was not drawn to strictly clinical studies. A professor and supervisor noted that I had developed my own approach and philosophy of Expressive Arts Therapies combining the spiritual, practical, intellectual, emotional and psychological and suggested I continue to do so. I found a school that worked with me to develop my own curriculum which combined theory, design, implementation of programs and a dissertation. My PhD is in Expressive Arts Psychology and is not medical in nature.
