I am a New York State Clinically Licensed and Nationally Board Certified Creative Arts Therapist trained in EMDR with a focus on Trauma. Additionally, I am an on-site Supervisor for NYU Steinhardt.
My clinical experience enables me to offer effective outpatient, individualized, psychological care. I treat a number of mental health disorders, and provide a neutral ground to individuals, families, and couples.
To some, Talk Therapy can feel threatening and intrusive. Sometimes, it can be too hard for an individual to express how they are feeling or what they are thinking. Art Therapy works well with children, adolescents and adults because it is universal, adaptable, and because it provides a non-threatening indirect way of working through problems. Through Art Therapy, I help provide a secure outlet for you and/or those you love, to express what you are feeling. This process can help individuals feel a sense of control, while keeping the therapeutic process interesting and creative. Art Therapy is a way to discover underlying thoughts and feelings, work through them and build on existing strengths to increase resiliency.
Many studies are being done to measure the benefits of Art Therapy, and “a randomized controlled study of 22 children found that those who received art therapy showed greater improvement on tests that quantify anxiety levels and quality of life, even 6 months after treatment.”
My focus is to help individuals recover, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths. This is achieved by providing a neutral secure space, listening to your concerns, and customizing a treatment plan.
Your treatment goals will be unique to you. Your goals will be the building blocks of your treatment plan. They will be specific, realistic, and tailored to your needs. We will develop the tools necessary to help you move forward in living a healthier and more authentic life.
