Jess Fox, LCAT, ATR-BC

Jess Fox is the clinical director of the creative arts therapy program at CFI. Fox is a board-certified creative arts therapist and she has been providing art therapy to children, adults, families and couples for over eighteen years across a variety of settings. 

Fox has provided bereavement counseling and art therapy to 9/11 victims’ families at the Healing and Remembrance on the 10th Anniversary of 9/11, art therapy workshops to empower and mentor teens in the school setting, as well as numerous in-services in both school and hospital settings. She has conducted lectures and public speaking engagements at local, state and national conferences on the benefits of art therapy with the homeless population. In 2009, Fox spoke to NYC Council members at City Hall to advocate the need to keep Recreation Departments in the homeless shelters. The fight was won and the programming and jobs remain in place.  

Fox is a member of the AATA (American Art Therapy Association), ATCB (Art Therapy Credentials Board), and NYATA (New York Art Therapy Association). She is the vice president of NYC Regional Arts in Healthcare, a group of professionals that work in the healthcare profession providing creative arts. In addition to her role as a creative arts therapist, Fox is also a visual artist and is a member of the BWAC (Brooklyn Waterfront Artist Coalition), an artist collective. Fox’s artwork via mixed media, oil, watercolor and acrylic painting are on display throughout the NY Metro area.

Fox received her master’s degree from Hofstra University where she graduated Magna Cum Laude from the creative arts therapy program.  Her thesis was on self-esteem and the exhibition of clients’ artwork. Over the years, Fox has facilitated more than ten art exhibits, one of which, “Hope for the Homeless”, was filmed and aired on local news. Fox was interviewed personally about her involvement in curating the show and her role as an art therapist with the homeless population.
