Bailey Call is a clinical art therapy intern. She is studying Art Therapy at The George Washington University, a fully accredited program, where she is currently earning her master’s degree. Prior to joining the team at CCTA, she worked at a domestic violence shelter for three years and recently completed a clinical internship with the Arlington County government where she worked with individual clients and facilitated group therapy sessions.
Bailey uses mostly Psychodynamic and Cognitive-Behavioral approaches in work with adolescents and adults. These integrated therapies, combined with the process of art making within therapy, inform her work. Art therapy requires no artistic skill from clients, only a desire to explore imagery that is expressed through unconscious feelings and/or memories.
Her clinical areas of focus include anxiety, depression, trauma, women’s issues, and life transitions. With a B.S. in sociology, her passion for human rights and social issues—including race, class, gender, and sexuality—also inform her practice.
