ART THERAPY & PSYCHOTHERAPY NYC

CHILD & ADOLESCENT THERAPY

Traditional talk therapy can feel like cross-examination to some children and teens. Others don't express themselves well verbally as their problems may feel too painful or complicated to put into words.

As a type of expressive therapy, art therapy works very well with some children and teens because it is a safe outlet for expressing what they are feeling inside.

Because this is an attractive type of therapy to many, they are more likely to participate and stick with the process until problems improve. Our interventions are highly specialized and our staff have the training and experience to quickly identify, target and prioritize specific problem areas.

We help children (ages 6+), adolescents and young adults who are struggling with:

  • Self-identify & Low self-esteem

  • Life transitions & Loss

  • Isolation & Withdrawal

  • Low-motivation & Fatigue

  • Worry, Fear & Stress

  • Irritability & increased sadness

  • School Issues & bullying

  • Impulsive & Risky Behaviors

Our licensed psychotherapists infuse mindful coping strategies such as breathing techniques, guided imagery, meditation and Art Therapy with evidence-based talk therapy modalities such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) to help children and teens thrive.

My child experienced issues due to a difficult divorce. Our work with Emily has greatly helped my child become better able to express her feelings and needs so that she feels safe, happy and loved. I am grateful for Emily’s patient and calm manner and ability to focus sharply on the needs of my child.
