About

Christine Turner is nationally board certified in art therapy, in counseling and in supervision. She has been licensed in Oregon as a professional counselor for over 20 years. In 1986 she founded the art therapy program at Marylhurst College. Ms. Turner developed and taught introductory and advanced courses, established clinical affiliations throughout the tri-county area and beyond for placement of practicum students and she facilitated the practicum seminar for many years.

Her earliest clinical experiences include working as a therapist with adolescent and child clients with major mental illnesses in residential treatment settings. She now maintains a small private practice where she works with individual clients of all ages, families and couples who may be experiencing depression, grief, anxiety and stress while dealing with transitions, and difficult relationships in their lives.

Since 1984, Chris Turner has made more than 65 presentations at conferences and other events, including the American Art Therapy Association Conference and American Counseling Association Conference. Chris is a member of the American Art Therapy Association and the American Counseling Association. She is a book review editor for The Arts in Psychotherapy journal and produced two 55-minute videos on pioneers in the field of art therapy: Janie Rhyne: Form as Content and Rawley Silver: Art Therapist and Artist.
