Thereafter, my interests in art, business and working in service to others culminated in a full time academic path, blending well with life as a new mother. Today I am a state-registered psychotherapist under clinical supervision toward Vermont licensure as a Psychologist. My clinical supervisor is Dr. Craig Knapp, Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist - Doctorate of North Clarendon, Vermont.
I earned my BA in Behavioral Science from the College of Saint Joseph in Rutland, Vermont and my MA in Psychology from Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont. My early clinical experience included serving clients of the Rutland County Women’s Network (newly renamed New Story Center), Rutland county's local domestic and sexual violence program, through advocacy, crisis response and individual therapy. I continue to specialize in domestic and sexual violence, offering therapy to victims and survivors from the private sector.
My work has now expanded into private practice. Phases of Change Therapeutic Arts offers individual, group and retreat work, blending Internal Family Systems theory with Expressive Art Therapy and other relevant methods for helping clients to be and feel their personal best. I deeply value individual, relationship-based work and consider the unique connection with each of my clients a privilege. I also value the very special work that happens in a group of people sharing deeply and authentically with one another. I am pleased to offer individual therapy, groups and unique Expressive Art Therapy retreats through my private practice.
Charity Eugair, MA, Psychotherapist
I am a seventh generation Vermonter living in the small town of Pittsford, central to many of the unique features that make Vermont such a special place. I grew up here and deeply appreciate easy access to nature and the related enjoyment and healing that Vermont affords her residents.
In my younger adult life I worked extensively in hospitality, event planning and then business administration with my family’s custom woodworking company. My experience in business intersected with human services when I began working as a small business counselor and piloted an arts-based business development program for a community action agency.

Apart from being a therapist, I am a writer, teacher, mother, friend, artist, crafter, seamstress, collector, entrepreneur, outdoor enthusiast, gardener, hiker, camper, and active member of my community. I appreciate all things old and handcrafted with a penchant for crazy quilts, textiles and related items.
