Our mission is to provide hope and healing through creative self-expression, coupled with psychotherapy, in order to transform the lives of our clients through art therapy and wellness programs.
The Art Lab Rx approach is strengths-based, goal-oriented, and integrative. We employ research-informed therapeutic methods with proven outcomes including art therapy, traditional talk therapy, positive psychology and Adlerian psychotherapy.
We believe a therapeutic relationship is successful only when all parties are engaged and fully participate. Our part, as therapists, is to conduct treatment and to keep up with new training and research so we can provide our clients with the most effective methods to resolve their concerns.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist
Board Certified Art Therapist
Board Approved Clinical Supervisor
Certified Grief Support Specialist
As the Executive Director of Art Lab Rx, my goal is to increase the awareness of the transformational power of art therapy in my community and beyond. While establishing my practice, I noticed adequate space and transportation were significant barriers to providing quality art therapy services. This eventually led to our mobile mental health facility “Maggie” which is used to provide a safe, secure space for individuals and groups to create, explore and transform.
My strength is in collaborating with creative partners, such as hospitals, schools, and businesses, to custom-design wellness programs and/or art therapy groups that meet their specific organizational needs.
As a Board Certified Art Therapist, I combine Adlerian Psychology, Positive Psychology, and a multicultural, person-centered approach when serving the mental health needs of people who are experiencing substance use disorders, trauma, grief/loss, as well as anxiety and mood disorders. My aim is to create an active, collaborative therapeutic relationship by guiding clients through the creative self-expression process to explore concerns, reduce symptoms, and make meaning of circumstances.
As a Board Approved Clinical Supervisor, I support new professional therapists in the mental health field by providing guidance in both the clinical and administrative aspects of the therapy practice. In a safe, encouraging environment they can discuss and explore their ideas, case studies, therapy session methods, ethical boundaries, and licensure requirements. As a business owner with multiple years of art therapy experience within a variety of organizations and venues, I give them guidance on the administrative aspects of the therapy practice.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Art Lab Rx. It was the creative and professional journey of a lifetime. I tell everyone about my work with the Art Lab Rx team. I can’t help it. It’s fascinating work! Art Lab Rx is the ideal opportunity that many up-and-coming art therapists envision. – Reeve Bowling
Working in community is one of the core Adlerian theories we implement here at Art Lab Rx. One of the ways we do this is by collaborating with Adler Graduate School to work with their art therapy students who are ready for internships. This gives them the opportunity to implement their knowledge and skills and it allows us to share our experience in the field.

2021 Summer School Program with Art Lab Rx
Meet Reeve Bowling
As an Art Lab Rx intern, Reeve worked alongside other Adler Graduate School students with the Seven Hills Preparatory Academy summer school program. He helped develop nature-based, self-expressive, guided meditation, and mindfulness directives for school-aged clients. Art Lab Rx hired Reeve as an Independent Contractor following his involvement and leadership role with that program. He facilitates group sessions, develops interventions, and collaborates with Lisa on new projects.
Reeve Bowling holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology and biomedical humanities from Hiram College. He is currently pursuing his Master of Arts in Adlerian psychotherapy and clinical mental health counseling with an emphasis in art therapy at the Adler Graduate School. After graduating from Adler Graduate School, he plans on applying to the PsychDoc program at the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland. He plans to combine art therapy interventions with traditional talk therapy techniques to treat military veterans and their families. He believes that this population deserves the nonverbal and self-expressive benefits of trauma-informed art therapy.
