ALLUMA is an art therapy practice and wellness company founded by Board Certified Art Therapist Deanna Barton and was inspired by Deanna’s life experiences and past 10 years of work as an art therapist.
For mental health care to be inclusive it must be decolonized and embody cultural humility. Therapy can be a space for curiousity, learning, creating, feeling, and healing. Therapy should not require supressing our authentic selves. Having sat on both sides of the table as a patient/client and a practitioner, Deanna holds space for creativity and healing.
Deanna specializes in supporting the creative and emotional well-being of Black women as they journey in healing deep wounds and regain the confidence they need to take up space and bloom.
