Amy Chalifoux

Art Therapist

Amy graduated from The University of Connecticut with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration. After working in a small screen printing shop, Amy decided to continue her education path, earning a Master of Art Therapy from Cedar Crest College. Growing up, Amy wanted to work in the arts but also desired to help others. Embracing the connection between art and healing, Amy became passionate about the art therapy field. Amy first visited Circle of Seasons during an observation assignment while at Cedar Crest and immediately fell in awe of this beautiful school. Once graduated, Amy worked as a mobile therapist, visiting children and families in their homes, providing healing art making experiences. Soon after, Amy was also given an opportunity to join the Circle of Seasons community and has been with the school for the last four years. Besides art therapy, Amy is knowledgeable and enthusiastic about a large variety of art materials and craft making. Whenever possible, Amy spends her time outside hiking, biking, and gardening with her husband and dog, Duke.
