She has helped her clients discover their own paths using art therapy since obtaining her Master's degree in art therapy in June 2003. Ellen has presented on topics of grief, bereavement, and art therapy to a variety of audiences, professionals (mental health, child abuse, hospital, hospice and schools), and community organizations.
