About Meghan Hinman Arthur, PhD.

My career as a therapist began as a music psychotherapist, treating adults and children with serious medical illnesses and their families at several Manhattan hospitals and area hospices, overseeing music therapy programs and supervising music therapists.  This very meaningful work grounded me in the human quest to find meaning even in appalling circumstances, and the importance of relationships in finding the way through.  

I am recently relocated to Denver from New York City, where I was licensed as a creative arts therapist and worked with many wonderful patients, both in my private practice and in several Manhattan hospitals.  In Colorado, I am a licensed professional counselor and psychotherapist.  My doctorate is in Depth Psychology, with emphasis in psychotherapy, from Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, CA.  I received my masters training at the Hahnemann Creative Arts in Therapy Program at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA, and post-graduate training at the Music Psychotherapy Center in New York.  I am also a board certified music therapist.

My approach is influenced by Jungian, psychoanalytic, and interpersonal orientations to psychology.  I specialize in treating adults with trauma histories, with treatment focusing on the dynamics of the therapeutic relationship.  I also treat individuals with anxiety, depression, and relationship concerns.

I have presented both nationally and internationally, published in clinical journals, and taught graduate and undergraduate students in psychology, counseling, and music therapy.  I am currently an adjunct faculty member at Naropa University in Boulder, CO.
