Art Therapist


Ruzanna is originally from Armenia and specializes in eastern European populations. Ruzanna received her Bachelor’s Degree in Art Studio and Art History in 2005 from the University of South Carolina. She completed her Master’s Degree in Art Education and upon completion  taught middle school art for six years at a Title One School. 

Ruzanna wanted to shift into mental health after learning about their personal struggles while in class. Ruzanna decided teaching art did not feel as important as listening and treating mental illness. 

Ruzanna completed her second Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Art therapy at Lesley University. She enjoys working with the middle school and high school students struggling with depression, anxiety and family issues.

A Few Words from Ruzanna

"Art has played a big role in my life and has been a therapeutic outlet helping me through some difficult times. I have seen its affects on my life but also helping students and clients. I am excited to work in this field and am looking forward to continue to seeing what art therapy can do."

More about Ruzanna

Most of my personal interests and hobbies are art related.  As a personal hobby I love to make jewelry, I find it very relaxing. I love to read and watch movies. I love an open studio concept when people can just come and create and experiment with a variety of materials. 

I am originally from Armenia, so I also want to volunteer in the summers in Armenia practicing art therapy with survivors of the recent war there. I believe in this field cultural competence is very important, so I hope to be able to travel more and learn about other cultures in person and not just from books.
