Shani Bell, LPC, ATR Registered Art Therapist

Shani Bell is Licensed Professional  Counselor and Registered Art Therapist

As a therapist, her skills and training meet her natural compassion and belief in each person’s ability to heal and grow. With this opportunity extended to her by Fuller Life Family Therapy Institute, she endeavors to facilitate restoration and well-being by helping clients to utilize undiscovered strengths. She believes creativity is a universal method of functioning that is not unique to any one type of person. Where appropriate and beneficial, artistic exploration is used in treatment as a means to encourage expression, relaxation, personal insight, problem solving and healing.  

Shani is a graduate of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College with a master’s degree in Art Therapy. She completed her post-graduate training in Marriage and Family Therapy at Fuller Life.
