Natalie ROGERS Notice
ROGERS, Natalie Died in her home on October 17, 2015. She was born October 9, 1928, in Rochester, NY, to Helen E. and Carl R. Rogers where the family lived for 12 years. They moved to Columbus, Ohio, where Natalie finished high school. After college, at age 21, Natalie met and married Lawrence (Larry) H. Fuchs at the United World Federalists where they worked. They were married for 20 years and lived in the Boston area where they raised their three children. Natalie divorced in 1970 and moved to the San Francisco Bay Area to start a new life. She started a psychotherapy practice and developed a Person-Centered Expressive Art Therapy training program with an emphasis on how the creative process is our life force energy. This work was an integration of her own work with that of her father's renowned work in client-centered psychotherapy. She is known as a pioneer in the field of expressive arts therapy and authored three books and many articles. She lectured and facilitated workshops in Europe, Russia, Latin America, Japan, and South Korea. Her training program continues through the Person-Centered Expressive Arts Institute (PCEAI) under the leadership of her students and colleagues. Natalie is survived by her by her three daughters, Janet Fuchs, and her wife, Deb Huston, and her son, Simon Fuchs; Frances Fuchs, and her husband, Dennis De Muri; Naomi Fuchs, and her husband, David Willson, and their children, Satya Levine, Jazmin (Finnigan) Hooijer, and Megan Willson, as well as three great-grandchildren. Natalie had an adventurous life, traveling all over the world and staying true to wherever her spirit took her. She will forever be in our hearts. There will be a public memorial service on December 5, 2015, at the Glaser Center in Santa Rosa at 2:00 p.m. Donations can be made to the Person-Centered Expressive Arts Institute (PCEAI), c/o Sue Ann Herron, 2233 Sobre Vista Rd., Sonoma, CA 95476. All donations will go to the Natalie Rogers Scholarship Fund so that all people can participate in Expressive Arts.
