Creative Art Therapist in New York

About My Clients

Have you found traditional talk therapy limiting, especially in working with trauma-related issues? It's because trauma treatment requires bottom-up approaches to rewire the lower parts of your brain that words can't access. EMDR, creative arts, somatic & inner child work are effective bottom-up methods that I use to help you process past trauma and rebalance your nervous system. The process are often transformative and you will feel safer in your body with more self-compassion and resilience.

My Background and Approach

I am a licensed creative arts therapist, specialized in the use of music. I have been practicing since 2010 and in the past six years, focused my work in trauma treatment. I received EMDR training and was an affiliate at the Trauma Treatment Center of the National Institute for the Psychotherapies in NYC. I practice through a trauma-informed, humanistic, relational and integrative approach. I utilize effective treatment methods such as EMDR, IFS, mind-body and breath work, and music, arts and movement to augment talk therapy and to access the deeper parts of the brain where the trauma lies. You will have autonomy to choose your preferred method to process difficult feelings or past traumatic events with me as a gentle and attuned guide. We will also explore your attachment styles and understand the patterns as protective mechanisms. Our therapeutic relationship will be a secure base and emotional playground for you to practice new behaviors & move towards a more secure attachment.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that there is wholeness in all of us and we can experience it through creative expressions in a safe and non-judgemental environment. We all crave to find who we are and be who we ought to be but the trauma that is passed down through generations and societies can drown that curiosity and hinder us from living authentically, fully and freely. Non of us can escape from the collective, generational and societal trauma as it is part a life. But our body holds the wisdom and our body and mind have the natural propensity and capacity to heal if allowed the time and space. Therapy is giving yourself the gift of time, space and partnership to understand yourself, to move through your pain, to heal from the past, to connect to your healthy core and to build resources and resilience to cope with life's challenges.
