Ernesto Atkinson, ATR-LPC

Our Therapist

Passionate About Inspiring Others

As an Art Therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor, my goal is to be a witness to my participant's personal growth by engaging them in an adaptive and creative path of self-exploration.

My approach is to create a nonjudgmental, multicultural connection between the participant and me. Together, we use a combination of artistic and therapeutic approaches which will lead the participant to self-healing, according to his or her needs.

I am experienced working with a wide range of diverse populations, ages, and mental health issues.

For myself, art therapy is an adventure of self-discovery. Through my artistic interpretations, I learn about myself from the deepest parts of my inner-self to reflecting on the outer parts of my own experiences.
