Amaranta Medina-Seabright is a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist in Brooklyn, NY who works with adolescents ages 15 and up, adults across the lifespan, and couples. She specializes in anxiety, depression, and trauma, as well as in supporting clients through life transitions.
Maintaining a culturally sensitive lens is at the heart of Amaranta's practice. She welcomes people from diverse communities, particularly individuals seeking to explore the impact that race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and gender identities have on their lives and relationships.
While Amaranta's practice mainly focuses on traditional talk therapy, clients may choose to engage in Art Therapy as a method for developing deeper self-awareness and understanding. Regardless of the approach, Amaranta believes that the alliance between the client and therapist is the most vital component to therapy. Her goal is to create a space in which clients feel safe, seen, and heard so that they feel comfortable enough to explore the complexities of their everyday lives and empowered to make positive changes.
Outside of private practice, Amaranta is a Clinical Supervisor and Thesis Advisor at Pratt Institute.
