Rebecca Zub, LMHC, ATR, is a licensed mental health counselor and art therapist. Zub earned her BFA in illustration at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), gaining formal experience in drawing and painting. After graduating from RISD, she felt compelled to bring art into the community she was a part of and began to volunteer to run art-based activities at local parks throughout Providence, as well as intern at AS220 in the gallery. From there, she went on to study art therapy at Lesley University in Cambridge, MA where she earned her master's degree in art therapy and mental health counseling.
Zub has worked in a variety of settings in the mental health field, including home-based, adult day programs, residential treatment, and medical and psychiatric inpatient- including her previous role as a Bradley Access clinician. She has experience working with children and adults diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders and other developmental disabilities, and especially loves to bring process-based art exploration into work with these populations; offering opportunities for self-expression, identify development, and collaboration with others.
