Sharon FitzGerald, M.A., ATR, is a Registered Art Therapist (ATR) in private practice in Miami, FL. After graduating in 1989 from The George Washington University with a Master’s degree in Art Therapy, she practiced Art Therapy in Washington DC for over 10 years in a variety of psychiatric and mental health settings. From 2012-12014, Sharon received training in Sandplay Therapy©, which is based on the work of renowned psychiatrist Carl G. Jung. Sharon has been in private practice in Miami for 5+ y and is bilingual in both Spanish and English.
Sharon’s life path has taken her in a variety of interesting directions: between undergrad and grad school, she lived in Europe for 10 years, 8 of them in Spain (she still misses the Spanish way of life!). She has worked in the travel, tourism and hospitality industries, as well as being in jazz public radio for 5 years, hosting her own on-air program on Latin jazz – so she understands the need for creativity and flexibility in today’s world.
In fact, one of Sharon’s core beliefs is that creativity is the wellspring of life: creative problem-solving, self-expression, dreamscapes, personal mythology, the use of the imagination – all foster a sense of vitality necessary to embrace and enjoy a meaningful life. Finding time for creative self-expression can be difficult in today’s challenging modern world, where we all at times feel overwhelmed with the minutia of daily living, over-scheduled with tasks, to-do lists, and getting from appointment to appointment.
Sharon welcomes all inquiries about Art Therapy, Sandplay Therapy or Tele-therapy.
