Madeline Dunn, LPC, ATR
Psychotherapist & Art Therapist
Have you struggled finding the right therapist, or feel therapy can be daunting or overwhelming? I became an art therapist because I believe the most important part of the therapeutic relationship is creating an environment of safety and connection, while still challenging you to explore new perspectives and ways of healing. Everybody’s healing and therapy journey is unique, and every person requires individualized treatment. I have witnessed both in my own healing and others’, the different ways art can facilitate healing by helping process, provide insight, help with grounding, and so much more. For some, art can be intimidating, but there is no requirement for self-perceived artistic or creative abilities to experience the benefits of art therapy. Learning to challenge self-judgments is one of the foundational principles I have learned through my own art therapy.
I believe that healing is a long, but possible journey, that at its core requires compassion, safety, empathy, patience, and willingness. As a therapist, I provide my clients with support, empowerment, humor, inquisitiveness, and creativity.
I graduated from Adler University with a MA in Art therapy and Counseling, qualifying me as a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Registered Provisional Art Therapist through the Art Therapy Credentials Board. I have experience practicing art therapy and counseling with outpatient and intensive outpatient clients struggling with trauma and PTSD, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, bipolar disorders, schizoaffective disorders, borderline personality disorder, as well as working with gender and sexuality related issues.
