My “regular job” provides me with an incredible opportunity to meet and be in conversation with some incredible individuals. It is through my work at the CentraCare Health Foundation & Coborn Cancer Center that I met our guest Katie Kinzer.
The work she does with cancer survivors is amazing and very inspiring.
Enjoy the conversation!
About Katie Kinzer
Katie Kinzer’s passion for two seemingly different subjects led her on a rather unusual journey. In wedding her love for art with her interest in psychology, Katie fulfilled her life’s dream of becoming an art therapist. Since receiving her B.A. in psychology and studio art from Concordia College, Moorhead, and her M.A. in art therapy from the University of Wisconsin, Superior, Katie has gained extensive experience in art therapy work. Katie offers art therapy at the Coborn Cancer Center (St. Cloud, MN) as a part of the Survivorship Network Program.
In working with adults, adolescents and children alike, Katie has become especially knowledgeable in implementing art as a tool to help clients move through trauma. One of her special talents is her ability to foster the healing process through providing a warm and non-threatening atmosphere, which allows clients to feel safe and contained. Clients of all ages have come to find comfort and place a deep trust in Katie’s capacity to hold them through their journeys of inner healing.
