Dawn Ippoliti is a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist with offices in Flatiron, Manhattan and Millburn, NJ. She specializes in using art therapy to explore trauma, family challenges, depression, anxiety and stress management. Dawn particularly enjoys working with adolescents to strengthen their abilities to address life challenges and learn new ways to cope with stress and anxiety. Dawn is an expert in gently helping clients navigate the emotional intricacies of their past, identify their strengths, and find closure to unresolved issues.
Dawn practices from a holistic approach, drawing upon evidence-based modalities with an emphasis on mindfulness and staying grounded in the present moment. Through art therapy, she helps her clients explore a deeper, more internal part of the self to discover insights about the unconscious mind. She supplements this creative process with active discussion to physically and mentally engage each client fully. Her work is focused on enabling clients to explore their inner desires and relationship patterns, foster personal growth, and progress toward healing in a creative way. With clients who choose not to engage in art therapy, she utilizes talk therapy to highlight their strengths and mindfully guide them toward finding joy in themselves and their relationships.
Dawn is committed to creating a safe, comfortable atmosphere for clients to freely explore their thoughts and feelings. Her practice is trauma-informed and highly personalized toward the needs of each client. Her Flatiron office is conveniently located near several different metro lines.
