Kate Sutphin, MA - MA, ATR



I am a professional art therapist with a passion for helping individuals explore their inner selves and promote personal growth through the transformative power of art. With a strong foundation
 in mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral therapy techniques, I offer a unique and effective approach to therapy that combines verbal and non-verbal communication.
In my practice, I utilize art as a medium for self-expression, reflection, and exploration. Through various art forms such as painting, drawing, and sculpture, I guide clients in expressing their inner-selves. This process allows for a deeper understanding of emotions, thoughts, and experiences, fostering self-awareness and facilitating positive change.
I hold a master's degree in Art Therapy from Marywood University, which has equipped me with a comprehensive understanding of psychological theories and therapeutic techniques tailored specifically to art-based interventions. Moreover, I follow a person-centered approach, ensuring that each client's unique needs, goals, and preferences are at the forefront of our therapeutic journey.
In my post- graduate experience, I have honed my skills in art therapy and witnessed the profound impact it can have on individuals' lives. I have experience with all ages with various diagnoses. Therapy is centered on the client’s goals, including: processing trauma, navigating stress, dealing with anxiety, depression and more. I also specialize in neurodivergence including autism and ADHD.
Furthermore, I am trauma-informed, meaning I have a deep understanding of the ways in which trauma can impact individuals' lives and incorporate this knowledge into my practice. I create a safe and supportive environment where clients can process and heal from traumatic experiences through artistic expression. Through our collaborative work, I aim to empower individuals, promote self-discovery, and facilitate personal growth and transformation.
