Kate T. Donohue, PhD, REAT, adjunct faculty in Expressive Arts Therapy is a licensed psychologist and a registered expressive arts therapist. She holds a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology and has maintained an active private practice for 32 years. She has also been teaching for 35 years, at such institutions as California Institute of Integral Studies, Institute for Transpersonal Psychology, JFK University and the San Francisco C.G. Jung Institute.  Kate was also one of the original founding core faculty members of the Expressive Arts Therapy at CIIS. Additionally, she has been a supervisor for the past 30 years and was coordinator of the Expressive Arts Therapy Program's practicum supervision. Her life work in teaching, supervision, consultation, training and her therapy practice has been to marry Jungian Psychology with expressive arts therapy.

Kate was a cofounder of the International Expressive Arts Therapy Association and is now a MCEP and CEU provider. Her work as an expressive arts therapist stems from her own deep and abiding passion for the arts, culture and spirituality . Kate is involved in visual arts and dance, having spent 20 years studying indigenous and ethnic dance forms, in particular West African and Afro-Cuban Dance.  Her visual arts work in painting and drawing has helped Kate explore an interest in understanding the sacred feminine. With a background in drama and poetics, and a great appreciation for music, Kate says that her involvement in arts and culture has made her own life richer, by allowing her to map and understand her own inner terrain.
