As an inpatient art therapist at PrairieCare, Quinn leads art therapy, process, and identity exploration groups for children and adolescents. She practices therapy from a trauma-informed, feminist, relational perspective.
Art therapy is a therapeutic modality that focuses on visual and metaphorical tools for healing emotional suffering. It is a way of externalizing the thoughts and feelings which cause pain. It is particularly useful for addressing issues in life that are hard to talk about—like grief, death, loss, trauma, hopes, dreams, and fears.
Art therapy is not necessarily about creating beautiful works of art. It is about attending to the poetry and metaphor of our life stories.
Outside of PrairieCare, Quinn enjoys drawing comics, yoga, biking, and playing music.
