She is enthusiastic about reconnecting individuals with their creativity and the healing potential of art. She maintains her own art practice as well as a deep connection to nature and spirituality.
Dr. Albright Knash lived and practiced in Memphis, Tennessee for thirteen years and had the privilege of supervising several Southwestern students during their internship. She moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin to become Clinical Director of an outpatient dual diagnosis community center. She then began her own practice in the South Milwaukee area. She has presented at a number of conferences including the NMT Conference in Canada as well as the American Art Therapy Association conferences. She continues to offer supervision to emerging professionals and values this opportunity to continue to help shape the field of art therapy.
Dr. Albright Knash is honored to be able to join Southwestern College’s faculty; she valued her time and her learning immensely in the art therapy graduating program and is excited to be able to contribute to an institution that has played an important role in her career.
