Meet Sarah

Sarah Guercia, MA, ATR-BC, LPC

Artist. Art Therapist. Lightworker.

Sarah Guercia, MA, ATR-BC, LPC is a registered art therapist, licensed professional counselor, and artist. Sarah’s creative offerings stem from the belief that we all have a natural propensity towards healing, especially when mind, body, and spirit are free to communicate effectively. She believes this requires an awareness of how to nourish oneself in all domains.

Sarah has experience working with clients with disordered eating at various levels of care, including IOP, PHP, and assessing for residential and inpatient admissions. Sarah deepened her connection with Spirit while interning within a hospice setting, and currently offers techniques for clients to explore grief, spirituality, and existential curiosities.

Sarah received her master’s degree in Art Therapy from Albertus Magnus College in 2014. In 2015 she was the recipient of the American Art Therapy Association’s Gladys Agell Award for Excellence in Research, in relation to her thesis work on art therapy and the flow state. Sarah’s favorite art materials include acrylic paint and glitter and she often participates in community art shows.

Katy Hyland, MAATC, LPC

Katy Hyland MAATC, LPC is an art therapist and licensed professional counselor. She received her Master’s degree in Art Therapy and Counseling from Albertus Magnus College in 2018. Katy’s experience is working with clients diagnosed with eating disorders, including Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorders, and various forms of disordered eating. She also has experience working with clients struggling with anxiety, depression, and who have experienced trauma.

Katy’s path to helping those struggling with eating disorders began in 2017 with a graduate internship at Walden Behavioral Care. In 2018, she returned to begin her career and during that time worked primarily with adults, joining them as a guide on their journey toward finding their power, their voice and toward healing.

Katy also identifies as an artist. Her career has allowed her to combine a passion for creativity and self-expression with a desire to help others heal, find meaning and reconnect with themselves. She received her BS in studio art and concentration in photography. Katy feels that art has the power to create connections between mind, body, and soul which, in turn, allows individuals to express what words cannot say, reveal a voice that may have been lost, and discover a path towards healing.
