Kayla Gardner, ATR-BC, LPC


About Me

I am a board certified art therapist (ATR-BC) and a licensed professional counselor (LPC). I have had experiences with the following: hospice care, addiction counseling, adolescent psychiatric setting, and an adult psychiatric setting. I currently work with the forensic population in a psychiatric hospital. My passion is to have patients use art as an outlet, a coping skill, to improve self-esteem and gain awareness of difficult emotions.
