Cynthia Wilson, M.A., ATR, MFTI
Art is a universal language that can be very healing for even those individuals experiencing the greatest depths of hopelessness. I believe it evokes hope and serenity in those who have lost their own.
The UniQue Art Therapy Program enables elderly to express themselves in a way that expands their vision of their place in the world.
I hold a Master of Arts (M.A.) degree in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) and a certificate in Creative Arts Therapy (A.T.) / Psychology. I am a Registered Art Therapist (ATR) and a Marriage and Family Therapist Intern (MFTI). I have over 8 years of experience providing art therapy and play therapy to children, adolescents, adults, older adults and families.
What Art Therapists Do:
Art Therapists use the creative arts to promote the positive mental health of people of all ages. Art Therapy has been proven to reduce stress and increase confidence among patients with illnesses including: depression, developmental problems, addictions, social & emotional problems, violence and neurological problems.

My skills and specialties are very diverse since my career as an Art Therapist has taken me to several different populations. However, my mission has remained the same:
TO PROVIDE PROFESSIONAL, QUALITY MENTAL HEALTH HEALING TO MY CLIENTS.
