Magdalena Karlick, M.A., LPCC, LPAT, ATR


I currently work with children 4+, adolescents, and families, in many different combinations. I have been seeing clients with interpersonal issues, trauma histories, and legal problems. I use a variety of modalities to work with clients, including directive and
non-directive art therapy, Sandplay, Sandtray, Somatic Experiencing, role-playing, and relational techniques.

I enjoy supervising students and LMHC therapists, exploring client – therapist relationship, agency dynamics, theory and technique.

I also use sandtray and art within the supervisory relationship to differentiate issues that the therapist is witnessing and experiencing.

Laura Lansrud-Lopez, LPAT, LPCC, ATR-BC, NCC, ATCS, ACS


Supervision is designed to assist you in improving your clinical and case conceptualization skills, and to help you develop your professional identity and competency. As your supervisor, it is my responsibility to monitor your client care and function in four different roles: teacher, consultant, counselor, and evaluator. I will support your choice of counseling theory and expose you to additional approaches when appropriate. I will also acknowledge the limits of my scope of competence and, when necessary, encourage you to consult specialists in order to provide the highest standard of care for your clients. In order to provide the most ethical and competent supervision possible, I only accept a limited number of supervisees at any given time, and entry into the Art Therapy Group is by application so that I can assess your appropriateness of fit and commitment to the group process.

My supervision meets the standards established by the Art Therapy Credentials Board (ATCB), the NM Counseling and Therapy Practice Board, the American Counseling Association (ACA), and the Center for Credentialing and Education (CCE).

Heather Wulfers, ATR-BC, LPAT, LPCC


I currently run several on-going Archetypal Supervision Groups as well as provide individual supervision for therapists. I often work outdoors where we are exposed to the metaphorical language of nature and can tap into her deep wisdom and support. I gently guide and engage the process using visualization and expressive arts components. I serve as a clinical supervisor for graduate students and as faculty at Southwestern College instructing courses such as Archetypal Psychology, Advanced Counseling and Professional Seminar. I am excited about the unlimited creative possibilities within the field of Art Therapy as well as the human spirit. Consider joining one of my groups for continual nourishment and inspiration or attend one of my upcoming workshops through NMATA.

Sylma Fine, M.A, LMFT, LPAT, ATR-BC


I have been licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist in California for several years prior to my move to the Southwest in 2010.   I am currently licensed as an LMFT and LPAT in New Mexico as well.  I am a Registered Board Certified Art therapist (ATR-BC) and have on several occasions presented workshops at the AATA’s annual conferences. 
I completed my undergraduate training in African Languages and Psychology at the University of Cape Town in my native South Africa and my Master’s Degree in Psychology and Art Therapy at Notre Dame de Namur University in Belmont, CA. My cross-industry experience includes training at Stanford University Hospital Medical Center (Palo Alto, CA), as well as supervising intern therapists and teaching art therapy at the graduate school level.  My accomplishments in the field of psychotherapy involve experience in both the private and public sector – private practice, program development and staff training in schools and residential settings, county substance abuse, and at the high school level.

I have advanced training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy and have led several consultation teams both in outpatient and residential settings.  
I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) and continue my learning and teaching counseling theories and practices on an ongoing basis. In my private practice in Albuquerque I work with adults, couples, families, and teens to assist with developing the lives they want to see for themselves and keeping their minds fit. My supervision practice of guiding therapists is another aspect of what I love to do – I strive to develop an interactive, collaborative approach in either individual or group supervision- one that provides nurturance and growth for each therapist to engage in dialogue to become the therapist they want to be.
