Amy Leiter

From a very young age I have had a passion for art making as a way to learn and explore my world. After working as a professional designer for several years, I discovered I could embrace my expression and creativity in the service of children and adolescents. I entered graduate school to train to offer art as a powerful mode for healing. With my M.A. from Naropa University in Counseling and Art Therapy, my dream of using art to heal will be realized through the creation of a nonprofit organization, Violet Hive Art Therapy and Healing. I am off to a great start. However, I could use some help, which is why I need YOU! As a child of adoption, I have personally experienced the profound healing that counseling and art therapy can provide. My passion for children and my clinical experience have prepared me to offer comprehensive support to clients from various backgrounds with a wide variety of needs. My goal is to create an organization that promotes community and hope while giving clients choice, no matter their circumstances. At Violet Hive Art Therapy and Healing we guide and support children, adolescents and families in their journey through the healing process. Youth will learn to recognize their strengths, identify challenges and overcome adversity. With the support of the Violet Hive Art Therapy and Healing team, adolescents will also learn how to identify and communicate their feelings and emotions, which in turn can influence the course of their life.
