Art Therapy Supervision

Dale Schwarz offers supervision for students working towards art therapy registration, and for professionals wanting to include art as a therapeutic modality in their work with groups and/or individuals; in social service, medical, or educational settings. Her supervision includes discussing client cases and artwork, treatment plans, and exploration of the dynamics that often arise in work settings. You'll have opportunities to practice art therapy techniques, that Dale developed for supervision, that help you reflect on and deepen your learning and creative process.


When you expand your skills to include transformational art in your clients, you and your work will be revitalized.

“I highly recommend Dale Schwarz for art therapy supervision. I had the great good fortune to avail myself of Dale’s wisdom and experience as I began my professional practice of counseling using the tools of creativity and expressive therapies. Working in a rural area of Maine as an LCPC with a wide range of clients, Dale’s many years of practice and keen ear helped me sort out far ranging issues. Dale had a way of hearing what was puzzling me, asking what my thoughts and approach had been, and then asking the right questions to guide my own thinking. She also was quick to catch areas that could trip up a client in my own language, redirect when I was wandering off course, and affirm my practice and efforts.

We usually worked through phone consults on a regular basis, with in person sessions two to three times a year when I would travel for workshops she offered. I was able to grow as a clinician, and establish a modality that fit my own creative thinking. I would highly recommend her orderly and thoughtful approach to the creative process and how it benefits both the professional and personal lives of those of us who have worked with her.”
