My name Renee Blodgett, I am a licensed creative arts therapist and proud member of our team. My journey into the world of therapy began at a young age when I knew I wanted to help others as a counselor. Art, a constant companion in my life, became the bridge to my dream career when I discovered the field of art therapy during high school.
My educational path took me to Roberts Wesleyan College, where I pursued a dual major in art and psychology, setting the foundation for my unique approach to therapy. Building on this strong base, I continued my studies and earned a master's degree in art therapy at Nazareth College.
Throughout my career, I've had the privilege of working with diverse populations, each with their own unique therapeutic needs.
I've developed a particular passion for specializing in areas such as:
My ultimate goal is to provide a safe and nurturing space for my clients as they embark on their individual therapeutic journeys.
In addition to one-on-one therapy sessions, I take pride in leading various teen art group therapy initiatives. These programs offer young individuals a creative outlet to explore and express their emotions through art. It's a rewarding experience to witness the transformative power of art therapy in action.
My professional journey has included invaluable experiences at Halligan Creative Arts Therapy, PLLC, the Hochstein School of Music, the Hickok Center for Brain Injury, Inc, and the Nazareth Art Therapy Clinic. These experiences have further shaped my skills and deepened my understanding of the profound impact of creative arts therapy.
In addition, I feel I am a dedicated guide and artist who helps individuals rediscover themselves through the incredible medium of art therapy. I'm excited to be a part of this team and I look forward to making a positive impact on the lives of those I have the privilege of serving.
