Dr. Coffey has been at home working with people as an educator, clinical psychologist, and, most recently, as a Registered Drama Therapist (who thrives on Improvisation!) her entire adult life.
Since her first days of student-teaching Language Arts to elementary school-aged children in 1984, and her first year of co-facilitating art therapy groups to adolescent boys in 1988, Dr. Coffey has naturally incoporated art and poetry into her work with people.
In 2002, Dr. Coffey began her training to become a Registered Drama Therapist with Board Certified Trainers who built their training program not only around their love of Drama but also around their love of Art, Poetry, Music, and Movement.
Over the next five years, while growing personally, professionally, and spiritually as a student, private practice practitioner, and human being, Dr. Coffey embraced her newest calling and became a Registered Drama Therapist in 2007.
Always someone who feels blessed that others find her approachable and trustworthy, Dr. Coffey admits that she is who she is today because of her trials and tribulations. She doesn’t want to be anyone else, to do anything else, or to live anywhere else ... yet. Maybe when her young son leaves for college.
Dr. Coffey has LOVED her life’s journey -- ups and downs and all -- and wants either the same for you or to honor your New Beginnings.
