Jessi Cross, LPAT, ATR-BC, LPCC
I am an Art Therapist with wide-ranging experience and skills, trained in both counseling and art therapy. Utilizing talk therapy as well as a myriad of creative approaches, I support my clients in working through the challenges they face. As a licensed mental health professional for eleven years, I have worked with clients of all ages and backgrounds throughout New Mexico, treating behavioral issues, trauma, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, and adjustment issues. I also worked with refugees and survivors of war crimes in Albuquerque, focusing on culturally competent trauma treatment. For many years I was involved with Creativity for Peace in Santa Fe, assisting Israeli and Palestinian girls to resolve conflict through art and dialogue. I believe strongly in the transformational quality of art as it is used in the therapeutic process.
