Melissa Turgeon

Board Certified Art Therapist

I am Board Certified Art Therapist, who has a passion to utilize the creative arts to deepen self-expression, build relationships and process through difficult life transitions.

If you ever have been at a point of significant life transition, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, anticipatory loss, grief and/or trauma, you are certainly not alone. Together, we will work side-by-side to discover your own path to find towards empowerment and resiliency. As a Board Certified Art Therapist, I bridge expressive arts, integrative therapies, and a humanistic approach to find healing and personal meaning to your story. Through the creative process and psychoanalytic theory, we focus on human relationships, personal insight, self-awareness, and stress reduction techniques. Art therapy is about play, discovery and personal growth. No art experience necessary.
 
I have a Master’s Degree in Art Therapy and Creativity Development from Pratt Institute and a dual certification as a Child Life Specialist. I have over 11-years worth of varied experiences in mental health and medical settings. Side-note: despite my credentials as an Art Therapist, take heed. We can also just talk.
I have extensive experience working with the early childhood population, school-age, adolescents and parents. I also really enjoy working with young and grown adults alike, seeking support during challenging times, life change and transitions. In my practice, I meet with children, adolescents, individual adults.

Understanding our relational  approach can give you a sense of how psychotherapy can help. Unlike counseling and other types of therapy, it takes a perspective that’s both deeper and broader. By focusing on emotions, it seeks to discover hidden pieces of who you are and then to understand how those pieces fit together.
