Ciara is a lifelong resident of Chicago's southwest suburbs. She graduated from Adrian College in Adrian, MI with a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art and Psychology. Currently, Ciara is a Graduate Student at Adler University pursuing a Masters of Counseling in Art Therapy.


Because of her previous work experience, Ciara’s clinical interests include leading groups, working with children and adolescents, and supporting families as an art therapist. As a counselor in training, she places great emphasis on developing a holistic understanding of the client. By becoming culturally empathetic, recognizing the client's strengths, and understanding the client’s community, she works to create a safe space for clients. Ciara is eager to explore these interests at The Center for Creative Arts Therapy and work closely with a variety of individuals in the community. In addition, Ciara is a figure skating coach. By highlighting the strengths in others, she facilitates a positive interaction among skaters. She loves spending time encouraging others to express themselves through skating and art.
