Founder/Clinical Director/Social Skills Instructor
Mike Fogel, MA, ATR-BC, LPC, is a caring, innovative therapist and program developer. He is passionate about making the world a better place “one child and their family at a time.”
Mike is a licensed, board certified art therapist with 20 years of clinical experience. Early in his career, Mike integrated art/play therapy and parent support/training into a unique outpatient child therapy approach effective with many childhood emotional/behavioral challenges. In 2000, he created The Art of Friendship Social Skills Program for children with neuro-developmental disorders, such as Asperger’s Syndrome, PDD, ADHD and learning differences. In recognition of these programs, the Delaware Valley Association honored Mike with the “2006 Innovative Application of Art Therapy Award”. To meet increasing demand for his unique brand of therapy, in 2007, Mike opened a group practice entitled, The Child and Family Art Therapy Center.
A charismatic and engaging speaker, Mike has presented at national and local conferences and for professional and lay organizations. He mentors interns and taught graduate art therapy courses at the Hahnemann Creative Arts in Therapy graduate program at Drexel University as an adjunct professor from 1999-2015.
Mike is thrilled by the challenge and JOY of developing and running CAMP PEGASUS - the culmination of his training and experience! He enjoys his work as well as prog-rock music, the beach, comedy, sports, making art, and reading comic books. Mike loves his family best of all! He lives in Wynnewood with his wife, two children and Penny the Shi Tzu.
