Join Kat and artist and art and art therapist Leah Guzman, who shares her journey and talks about how she became interested in art therapy. We also discuss Leah's fantastic new book, full of healing exercises.

Art therapy is a therapeutic relationship between the client and the therapist and utilizes the arts to help us express ourselves.

Leah and Kat discussed how art therapy works, how it differs from other forms of treatment, and how she is now working on with clients online to continue her passion despite the pandemic.

"I've loved making art for as long as I can remember, so when I entered college, I knew that art would be my focus. I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in studio sculpture from Georgia State University, then studied painting at the San Francisco Art Institute. Later, I earned a Master's degree in Art Therapy at Florida State University, became a Board Certified Art Therapist, and have now been practicing for 16 years."
