Creative Approaches to Study

I like working individually with people to get to know them and build positive relationships. I am really interested in creative arts therapy. At some point in my career, I want to be able to explore and incorporate other mediums to assist the therapeutic process and compliment talk therapy. In addition, I love animals and would also like to explore animal-assisted therapy.Christine Wilson ’17
