Employee Recognition: Alexia Kutzner & Maria Fuster


Staff Spotlight - Alexia and Maria

Many positive things are happening at our CIP Long Beach center thanks to therapists Alexia Kutzner and Maria Fuster

  • Alexia was accepted to the professional doctorate program in art therapy at Mount Mary University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and will start the program in the summer.
  • Alexia and Maria attended a lecture on "Autism: Treatment and Research" by Charlotte Distefano, Ph.D, from UCLA. They were able to talk to Dr. Distefano afterwards about CIP and our students.
  • Alexia attended a 6-hour lecture, "Pharmacy in the Kitchen", on foods that help lower anxiety, depression, and other symptoms common in this population.
  • Alexia and Maria are also putting final touches on their article on "How Art Therapy Lowers Anxiety in Clients with ASD."

Great teamwork from CIP Long Beach!
