Announcement icon I am currently offering teletherapy only for the safety and convenience of my clients. I'd love to hear from you and see how I can help.
I provide Art Therapy to individuals and groups to maximize your creative potential and work through fears, addictions, loss, resistance and whatever prevents you from living your most fulfilling life. Art Therapy is an evidence-based, experiential form of psychotherapy, using the creative process through painting, drawing, sculpting or any other creative medium that a client chooses. This process, under the guidance of a credentialed therapist, allows clients to safely express feelings that can be obscured in verbal expression, leading to heightened insight and self-awareness, innovation, self-esteem, empowerment and change.
My approach to art therapy begins with meeting clients where they are at. Clients’ comfort and feeling safe are the first priority. With no art experience or skill needed, clients have the experience of being deeply seen and heard. Clients often leave sessions feeling relaxed and energized with new perspectives.
My practice is deeply informed by my previous international economic development work and the profound impact of our cultural framework and “belongingness” to our sense of wellbeing. In addition to my private practice, I am currently a clinician at Weill Cornell Medicine, Midtown Center for Treatment and Research, an outpatient substance abuse clinic.
