About Neha Bhat


I’m an art therapist, artist, educator and counselor. I use visual art and drama to facilitate meaningful, personal change in individuals and communities impacted by various kinds of trauma. I practice art therapy from a queer, intersectional feminist, trauma-informed, anti-caste, social-justice perspective. I see clients who are queer, marginalized and/or bicultural in India and in the US online and in-person.

I have a wide range of work experience in working with children with special needs in India, adults impacted by sexual violence in the US and couples/families impacted by various kinds of trauma across the world.


I have a Masters in Art Therapy and Counseling from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (impending 2019). I am a certified Expressive Art Therapist in India where I studied art/drama therapy based on the principles of Indian Buddhism. I have trained in Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed for working in community conflict navigation and I have an IGCSE Art teacher certification in India.

  1. Thanks Rajasee!
    I absolutely love the ‘Wayward Cloud’ and it deals with a lot of layers. So I thought poetry was an apt pathway.
