'I love when conversations and energy just flow. Not forced. Not coerced. Just present.'
- Dau Voire
A few weeks back I had the pleasure of having artist and art therapist Amy Maricle over for an artist's date.
We spent the day up in my studio talking about art, art therapy, our careers so far, being moms, and many other things. The day flew by and we are eagerly anticipating our next artist's date.
I am inspired by Amy's warmth, creativity, and experience in the field. Her interests and focus on mindfulness, spirituality, and client-centered collaboration resonate with me on a deep level.
During out time together we decided to interview one another so that our blog followers could get a taste of our conversation and hopefully draw some inspiration from it like we did.
Amy posted her interview with me recently on her blog:
Art Therapy Podcast: Sara Roizen
Now I'm excited to share my interview of Amy (audio below). Amy talked about the path that led her to becoming an art therapist, what she loves about art therapy, and her experiences in private practice. I think that listeners will be especially interested to hear some of her tips and encouragement for anyone interested in taking the leap and starting a private practice.
To find out even more about Amy's therapy work you can visit her site:

Be sure to enjoy her blog as well, which is packed with video tutorials, guided practices, and inspiration about creative self-care, managing anxiety, and many other topics.
Enjoy the interview and we'd love to hear your thoughts and comments!
