Jessica Whitesel, LPC, ATR-BC, has been a part of the art therapy faculty since 2007. She maintains a private practice working with children and adolescents, specializing in trauma, dissociation, and attachment issues. Her focus includes the integration of EMDR and creative arts therapy, dissociative processes, and Jungian approaches to art therapy. While working as an art therapist at Mount Saint Vincent Childrens Home in Denver, Jessica co-authored a treatment manual to help clinicians utilize somatosensory approaches in working with traumatized children, called Doodles, Dances, and Ditties: A Somatosensory Handbook, which includes an introduction by Dr. Bruce Perry.
