About Jessica Metzger, MA, LMFT, ATR-BC

Jessica Metzger, MA, LMFT, ATR-BC, integrates art therapy and marriage and family therapy to help you gain insight and clarity, experience relief from symptoms, and transform stress and trauma into healing. Art therapy is a powerful modality for navigating life’s twists and turns, cultivating resilience, and achieving optimal wellbeing – even if you can’t draw. 

Her approach is gentle and compassionate and she enjoys working with individuals of all ages, groups, couples and families. Jessica is experienced working with a broad range of issues from trauma to ADHD. She also enjoys working with gifted and talented/twice-exceptional individuals, individuals with autism, and LGBTQ+ individuals.

Jessica earned her B.A. in Studio Arts, Women Studies and Psychology at Saint Olaf College, Northfield, MN, in 1995. In 2001 she completed training at Theophilus Divinity School in the Spiritual Practices in Relationships Intensive Training (S.P.R.I.R.T) program, Minneapolis, MN. Jessica attended the Expressive Arts Institute at Salve Regina University, Newport, R.I. for Expressive Arts Educational Facilitator Training in 2006. 

She achieved her dual Master of Arts in Art Therapy and Marriage and Family Therapy at the Adler Graduate School, MN, in 2012 and became professionally licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist in 2015. Jessica earned her registration and national board certification as an art therapist in 2018. Currently Jessica serves as an adjunct professor at Adler Graduate School.
