“Erin McKeen provides an exemplary education for those seeking a healing profession through the arts. Her knowledge of the philosophy and practice of art therapy is articulated with intelligence, compassion, humor and creativity. As a professor and co-facilitator of a Child Therapy Course at Pacific Oaks College in Pasadena, I was encouraged and supported throughout our collaboration with great insight and honesty.  She is truly dedicated to her practice of therapy and knows how the arts can help us find our way. Additionally, Erin designed and launched a summer camp for children with special needs at the Early Childhood Development Center in West Hollywood.  I highly recommend Erin Mckeen for education and training in the field of art therapy.
