Sophie is a Registered Art Therapist and Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor. She has been working in Chicago since 2011 when she received a Master of Arts in Art Therapy from the School of the Art Institute in Chicago. Her clinical art therapy has specialized in work with older adults who are challenged by age-related cognitive, emotional, and physical issues including symptoms from stroke, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s disease. In the last year, Sophie has started working in programs with community studio models and asking questions about how art can contribute to economic justice and restorative justice endeavors. Her participation in social and political actions informs her clinical art therapy as she strives to better hear more voices and expand her understanding of the world’s multifarious languages, cultures, and means of expression.
