About Me

Welcome to Arts Therapy Spectrum.

I'm Donna, owner and senior arts therapist.

I am a master's qualified, registered arts therapist (AThR). I have been working as an arts therapist for almost nine years and working as a group facilitator for 15 years. I completed my study in Melbourne and was the arts therapist at the Monash Children's Hospital before relocating home to Adelaide. I now work on the academic team in the School of Creative Arts Therapies at the Ikon Institute and teach on the Bachelor of Arts Psychotherapy.  I am a professional member of ANZACATA and feel strongly about advocating for arts therapy and being a supportive part of the arts therapy community in Adelaide.

Arts therapy is my passion and I love exploring new art materials and mediums. I enjoy the challenge of finding a medium that really speaks to my client. While the goal of art therapy is not to become good at art, I get excited when clients fall in love with making art and start to utilise this for health, wellbeing and fun outside of our sessions.

 

I enjoy working with all client types but have a special interest in working with children, teens and clients with ASD.​  I have experience working in the following areas:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder

  • Children and adolescents

  • Stress management 

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Mental Health

  • Health-related issues

  • Learning disabilities

  • Eating Disorders

  • Aged care

  • Dementia

  • Addiction

  • Pain Management 

  • Stress Management

  • Spirituality

  • Women's Issues

  • Domestic/ family violence

  • Identity issues 

  • Supervision
