Dallas Art Therapy | Andrea Davis
Andrea Davis, ATR-BC, LPC-AT-S, works in private practice and has worked with various nonprofits, providing individual and group art therapy services.
Andrea founded the nonprofit, Dallas Art Therapy, that offers low-cost and free art therapy services for the community.
Andrea is a past president of the North Texas Art Therapy Association (NTATA) and volunteered for a number of committees through the AATA and the ATCB on behalf of the profession. She earned her MA in Humanistic Psychology and went on to complete post graduate art therapy work at the Art Therapy Institute in Dallas, Texas.
Andrea is a Trauma Informed (TF-CBT) therapist. She is passionate about accessibility to art therapy services, and her dream is to see art therapy licensure and insurance reimbursement in every state.
When asked how art therapy is effective, Andrea says, “Just talking about a problem does not take away the bad feeling that resides in the body. Making art has the innate capacity to transform this negative visceral energy, releasing it.”
