Art therapy major Patricia Ortiz Treviño '13 is currently in private practice as an art therapist at Centro de Especialistas en Salud Emocional (Center for Emotional Health Specialists) in the Monterrey Metropolitan area of Mexico. While an undergraduate, she worked as an intern at Gateway Arts and gained additional experience at Hospital San José and Instituto Nuevo Amanecer, A. B. P.

"Since I graduated from Emmanuel College in May 2013 with a bachelor's in art therapy, I have been on a two-year journey of innovation and entrepreneurship in different professional experiences back in my home country, Mexico. I started working as an art therapist in a psychiatric outpatient clinic with patients diagnosed with affective disorders ranging from ages 15 and older. After this fulfilling year in learning, training and supervision, I moved on to Centro Medico Zambrano Hellion, an institution affiliated with Methodist International Healthcare. I had experience working as an Art Therapist in a hospital with patients going through physical rehabilitation and overcoming emotional stress due to a medical diagnosis.

Along with work, I have remained in a continued education, completing certifications in Rorschach Performance Assessment System, Psychotherapy investigation in Personality Disorders, Neuroscience, Psychodrama and Human Development and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and I will be starting my master's degree in Clinical Psychology oriented in Psychoanalysis this August 2015. I have also joined important organizations such as the Delta Kappa Gamma Society, International Society for Key Women Educators, being the youngest member in Mexico.

As of now, I have my private practice as an Art Therapist working with patients of all ages with psychiatric, emotional, cognitive and developmental disorders. Along with growing as a mental health professional, I have also engaged in an artistic career participating in art exhibits, galleries and shows with paintings of my own.

It has been a challenge, and it has taken time and dedication to complete so many things. Emmanuel College and faculty gave me amazing preparation and motivation to continue to pursue many more dreams and goals."
