A Community and Private Practice
Welcome and greetings!
My name is Erika Hamlett. I'm an art therapist living and working in Chapel Hill and surrounding areas of North Carolina. I work collaboratively with local community centers and organizations to infuse art therapy into our community! I'm currently expanding my art therapy offerings which include private practice (working with individuals, groups, and families) and community practice (collaborative work with community centers and other community resources).

Erika Hamlett, MA
I work with a strengths-based, client-centered approach allowing me to meet the varying needs of individuals and groups of people. My goal is to empower people of all ages to identify personal strengths, spark creativity, and fuel self-expression. No experience with art materials is necessary. Art therapy is art without expectations, no pressure, no right, no wrong. If you'd like to take a look samples click here
As art therapist I utilize art processes and materials with mindful intention. The goals and purposes of art therapy can vary widely reaching into physical, emotional, relational, or psychological aspects of ones life. Art therapy will help develop problem solving skills useful in every day living, allow for self-exploration and expression, empower individuals, engage with others, and provide a form of non-verbal communication.

As an art therapist and an active member of the American Art Therapy Association,
"a core part of [my] values is [my] commitment to embrace all people, regardless of race, color, religious or spiritual beliefs, age, national origin, ancestry, disability, socioeconomic status, marital status, immigration status, political views, former or current military status, criminal record, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, and gender expression, as well as new identities as they emerge."
