I am a Licensed Art Therapist / Psychotherapist, visual artist and designer with seventeen+ years experience working with individuals and groups including adults, adolescents and children. Currently, in private practice providing Art Therapy in NYC, I also facilitate workshops and groups.
Along with private practice, I am an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Fashion Institute of Technology, doing Career and Internship Counseling with students and alumni. Before becoming an Art Therapist, I had a long and wonderful career as a textile/home products designer. And have, and continue to be, a painter and mixed media artist.
After becoming an Art Therapist, and prior to private practice, I spent ten years at Catholic Charities working with adolescents and young adults. The first seven were as staff Art Therapist, one year as Program Manager and the last two as Clinical Supervisor. Additionally while there, I trained and supervised graduate art therapy interns.
Concurrently, I worked four years at the Chinatown YMCA as staff Art Therapist, and three as an Artist-in-Residence with cancer patients at NY Presbyterian Hospital through The Creative Center. Additionally, I served seven years on the board of the New York Coalition for Creative Arts Therapists (NYCCAT).

Working together in a supportive, creative, open environment, we use arts and dialogue to explore life's challenges, your relationship with others and most importantly to yourself. And, as the creation of a new image, feeling and/or idea arises, as the choice of a new material is made, as you learn to reframe the past, master feelings, recognize your resiliencies, and create new thought patterns, growth and healing occurs.
I have 17+ years experience and a focus on relationships (whether you are single or in a relationship), as well as creative blocks, life/career transitions, anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem, coping with medical illness, loss, grief. I work within a relational framework, integrating mindfulness, coaching and other creative modalities.
