Julia Volonts is an artist and art therapist specializing in collage and mixed media art. Her art practice developed as a desire to observe her own need to create and understand the impact art has on emotional health and well being. She believes that art allows us the capacity to heal, process, and explore the many different parts of the self. With collage, she selects images to create work that is of a minimal and abstract nature to explore the inner and outer parts of the human experience.

She holds a Masters of Professional Studies in Art Therapy from the School of Visual Arts and currently works as an art therapist at New York Creative Arts Therapists, PLLC, a group private practice located in Brooklyn, NY. Her clinical experience is within educational, community, and private practice settings and ranges from work with children and families, adolescents, and adults.

In addition to her work with clients, she has lectured and performed workshops at art therapy and mental health conferences. She currently serves on the board of the New York Art Therapy Association (NYATA), an affiliate of the American Art Therapy Association (AATA), to further her involvement in the creative arts therapy community.
