    Counseling and Art Therapy

    I come from a long line of Ursuline educated women.

    Leslie Cancelliere

    Why did you decide to attend Ursuline College?

    Ursuline College’s Counseling and Art Therapy program is widely known and celebrated in the art therapy community. Aside from the excellent education, I come from a long line of Ursuline educated women. My great aunt, Sr. Martha Mooney O.S.U., has devoted her life to Ursuline values and I am proud to follow in her tradition using my own visions and strengths.

    What do you believe is the best part of the Counseling and Art Therapy program?

    Much of the work done throughout the program is experiential and hand-on. The professors have a vast knowledge of the material with a creative mindset to educate students in a way that is engaging and directly applicable to working in the field.

    How has your experience at Ursuline helped your career journey?

    The Ursuline CAT program has a vast network across greater Cleveland. It is a common thread amongst counselors and art therapists in the area, that allows for quick connections and understanding of a strong academic foundation. The professors trust students to be able to work independently to build our therapist identity.

    Why do you believe other students should apply to the Counseling and Art Therapy program at Ursuline?

    From the moment I applied and was accepted to the program, I had no regrets. To work in this field is a true calling and am proud and fulfilled by the work that I do daily. Our communities are suffering with mental illness at larger and faster rates and to provide compassion and care to this marginalized population is both an honor and a gift.

    What is the month, and year you will be graduating from Ursuline College?

    I graduated January 2022. I am currently working as an inpatient behavioral health Art Therapist at Marymount Hospital.
