JAS MILAM, ATR/BC

 

Registered art therapist, board certified

 

Jas Milam is a working artist and a registered, board certified art therapist. She did her undergraduate studies in early childhood development and studio art at Sarah Lawrence College and received her Masters of Art and Art Therapy from Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College in 2010. She became a registered art therapist in 2019. In 2020 she was certified by the Art Therapy Credentials Board.

 

Jas sees children, teens, adults and couples at her studio, DAILY PRACTICE and offers group therapy for adults and families at her studio. Her work with children, teens and adults is informed by years of art making, deep Jungian roots and over 35 years of personal recovery.

Special populations that Jas has worked with include mentally ill adults, alcoholics and drug addicts, men and women with eating disorders, relationship addicts, at-risk youth, the LGBTQ population and artists who are “stuck”. She also works with individuals in Third Stage recovery who use art and art making in a Daily Practice as a path to spiritual growth.

Jas believes in the healing inherent in the creative process and makes art that draws on both religious and secular imagery. Currently she is studying and writing Icon paintings using local dirt, Tennessee River water and gold leaf to beautify and inspire. You may see her line of Daily Practice Altar Art at her Dodds Avenue Studio, or website www.jasmilam.com
