Camille lives locally with her wife, Naiya, and delightful daughter, Kaiden Wren. She is a licensed creative arts therapist and certified hypnotherapist, and serves the community from her psychotherapy and hypnosis practice in downtown Saratoga Springs. Upon graduating from WSSS, she attended Marlboro College in Vermont where she studied the intersection between phenomenology and mapmaking, completing her BA in Visual Arts in 2006. After spending some years traveling throughout the world, in 2014 she earned her MA in Art Therapy/Counseling from Southwestern College, a consciousness-based graduate school in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She returned home and began her private practice in 2015, and in 2017 she co-founded C.R.E.A.T.E. Community Studios, a nonprofit dedicated to promoting art-making and the creative process as a vehicle for personal growth, communication, and social change, with locations in Saratoga and Schenectady. She completed her clinical hypnotherapy training in 2018, and is passionate about weaving together the modalities of art therapy, sandtray therapy, past life regression, and hypnotherapy. She continues to make art and explores themes of alchemy, healing, and consciousness through map-making and sacred geometry.
Camille says her Waldorf education supported her self-confidence, resilience, and diligence: “Becoming a part of the Waldorf School of Saratoga Springs (then Springhill Waldorf School) was a turning point in my life. It gave me structure and space to constructively express myself, and allowed me to recalibrate my sense of self in the world. With gratitude, I remain deeply rooted in the community.”
