Jennifer Kotecki is a Board Certified Art Therapist (ATR-BC) and Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). Jennifer has worked with children, teens, and adults experiencing grief, as well as with individuals experiencing adjustment difficulties with life transitions. Jennifer is also currently an Associate Professor in the Art Therapy and Counseling Masters Program at Adler University.

Art is a great way to communicate feelings when there are no words to express our emotions. Jennifer helps individuals find the words that might be tucked away through art expression. Art therapy is about the process of creating, not the final product. No artistic skills are needed. All you need is curiosity about expressing yourself in a new way. Together, Jennifer and her clients find strategies to reduce stress and healthily reduce anxiety for a balanced way of living in this changing climate.
