Grief & Loss

During this difficult and worrisome time you may feel alone, nervous, anxious, sad, and out of control. These are normal responses to what we are seeing, hearing, and experiencing.

 

You may be feeling many difficult emotions, we are all experiencing this together. There are many beautiful people and organizations providing resources and support to help us navigate through this.

 

It’s essential to manage our stress levels during this time to help keep us and our loved ones safe and avoid burnout.

When you’re stressed and in need of grounding this technique may provide immediate relief:

 

Take a moment to acknowledge

5 things you can see

4 things you can touch

3 things you can hear

2 things you can smell

1 thing you can taste

 

Now take a cleansing breath in for the count of four and breathe out for longer than four. You can do this a few times if you need to.

 

You did it!

Our mission is to provide superior art therapy services designed to improve the quality of life for adults and the elderly on Long Island.

 We provide:

  • Individual sessions in the comfort of your home.

  • Contract art therapy groups for healthcare facilities and community centers.

 

If you or your loved one is recovering from an accident or injury, or effected by medical conditions and/or emotional challenges such as depression, anxiety, chronic pain, difficulty managing life stressors, dementia, aphasia, caregivers stress, etc., we can assist in achieving the quality of life you or your loved one deserve.

Our goal is to help people achieve optimal health by enhancing ones strengths and treating the whole person. Art therapy can help integrate the psycho-social, cognitive, physical, emotional and spiritual domains of life. 

We are licensed, insured, and board certified art therapists who are highly experienced in assisting individuals of all levels of functioning and ability. 

It is widely known how beneficial engaging in art, music, and mindfulness is for the mind and body. With guidance from an art therapist these creative outlets can become tools for managing, understanding, and navigating various challenges. Art therapists are trained at the master's level to utilize psycho-therapeutic techniques to treat serious emotional and psychological challenges. Art therapists purposefully choose and utilize specific art materials and directives for therapeutic advancement.  ​

If your healthcare or residential facility is seeking services to help support the emotional needs of individuals who are challenging, behavioral, anxious or depressed, we can work with you and your team to provide what may be missing. Our group services were designed specifically for the issues commonly found in facilities and can help hard to reach patients, take pressure off staff, and facilitate a supportive, therapeutic environment.  

*End of life care is also available. Call or email for more information
