Remembering Tally Tripp: Inspiring Through Art, Compassion And Courage

I am deeply saddened to share with you the peaceful passing of our faculty member, Tally Tripp. Tally was a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Board Certified and Registered Art Therapist, and Certified Trauma Therapist with decades of experience working with trauma. She was an incredible teacher and was passionate about integrating art therapy, somatic therapy, and EMDR to help clients heal from the effects of trauma.

As a clinical consultant working across the US and around the world, Tally provided trauma-informed education and training.  She had an amazing and incredibly adventurous zest for life and for living. Her devotion to important causes was never-ending and she changed the lives of many people.

Tally was an adjunct professor at several institutions including George Washington University’s Graduate Art Therapy program, where she founded and directed the Art Therapy Clinic for 14 years. Her clients were blessed to have her wisdom, compassion, and guidance, and we were very blessed to have her on our faculty as well.

Students loved her teaching style and always left her workshops with an abundance of creative, exciting, and effective new tools and strategies. She was loved by many, including her beautiful family – husband, Mark and daughters, Olivia and Camille – and will be dearly missed. She was courageous in life and was just as courageous in her battle with cancer.

Additional information about services or where to donate in Tally’s memory will be posted on the Caring Bridge website.

May Tally’s memory be a blessing and the incredible legacy of her work and her contributions live on for generations.
