Nina Hausfeld, MA, ATR, LPC

Therapist/supervisor

I feel blessed to be joining the incredible team of dedicated creative professionals at the Boulder Art Therapy Collective. Originally from Moscow, Russia, I came as a refugee to the US over 20 years ago with my family. As a child I found that drawing, painting and sculpting brought me joy while at the same time, allowed me to communicate things about my life that I did not have words for. Therefore I deeply believe that the creative process has a tremendous healing power and I feel fortunate to be able to offer this experience to my clients.

SARA FORREST, M.A., L.P.C.

Therapist and Volunteer Coordinator/Supervisor

I am a licensed professional counselor with training and experience in art therapy. I have worked with individual clients and groups addressing grief and loss, life review, dementia, addictions, boundaries, and more. I have also lead classes using art to help children discover insights and support for themes including adoption, personal identity, and sensory issues. I believe in art therapy as a medium for the client to reclaim power, make meaning and integrate experience.

Hannah Salander, LPC

Therapist/Spiritual Director/Superviser

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a master’s degree in transpersonal counseling and art therapy. I have worked as a therapist in diverse clinical and holistic settings to support individuals and families with desired change and greater sense of freedom, connection and wellness. I am happy to support children, adults and families who are addressing a wide range of needs related to healing from loss and trauma to include; relationship concerns, grief and loss, depression and anxiety, substance abuse, questions of purpose and direction, as well as spiritual emergency, single episode psychosis and healing from life disturbing events. I am currently training in EMDR Level 1 through The Maiberger Institute, and integrate the body’s natural wisdom, communication and resource through encouraging mindfulness and somatic awareness as well as art and creative therapy modalities. I completed a three year training as a Jewish Spiritual Director, through Aleph: Alliance for Jewish Renewal. I approach Spiritual Direction through an ecumenical lens and am happy to support those of any religious/spiritual background who are interested in exploring questions of faith, purpose and calling. I understand that our spiritual lives are not separate from our familial, social, political or ecological engagement. Cultivating and nurturing a deeper spiritual awareness and connection can support us in our personal healing, as well as our relationships with others and the roles we play in our communities. Spiritual Direction is a separate offering from psychotherapy, and if you are called to this work, I’d be happy to discuss it with you.
