I'm Suzie, An Artist and Art Therapist.
Ever since I was young, I've been expressing myself through the creative arts. I used art in my personal life to explore and understand myself and the world around me. In 2016 I received my BFA from Endicott College in Beverly Massachusetts, with a concentration in Creative Arts Therapies. In 2019 I received my MA in Art Therapy and Counseling from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I currently provide art therapy services at Within Holistic Counseling.
Through seven years of training as an artist, art therapist, and counselor, I have gained extensive knowledge about mental health and art making. I know that sometimes it is easier to explore our inner experience through images rather than words. I know that reaching out for help can be a vulnerable experience, and I am here to support you in that process. I use talk therapy and art therapy when working with clients at Within Holistic Counseling in Barrington and Woodstock, IL. Beyond providing individual services, I connect with organizations to provide informational or experiential workshops about art therapy and mental health. Enjoy exploring my site, and please reach out to me with any questions!
I look forward to connecting with you,
