Professional statement

Elizabeth Wynn is a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist in New York who works with clients struggling with generalized anxiety, social anxiety, trauma, and depressive symptoms. She primarily focuses on how their symptoms affect their self-esteem, their locus of control, and how their personal and professional relationships are affected.

Elizabeth's approach is strengths-based and collaborative. She also uses the attachment theory modality as a framework with her clients. She works with clients to develop a set of tools based on what has worked in the past and what is currently effective as a starting point. From there, she helps them develop short- and long-term goals to best achieve the outcome they are looking for. The attachment modality is not only effective when navigating personal and professional relationships, but also in how clients see themselves. By bringing the focus to their attachment styles, clients are able to gain insight into relationship and behavior patterns.

Elizabeth received a BS and MS in Creative Arts Therapy. Her professional background prior to private practice has been with adults, adolescents, children, and families in a wide variety of settings. She has worked with at-risk high school students in a community based drop-out prevention program, with emotionally disturbed children and families in their home, in an outpatient program for chemically dependent adults and their children, and in mental health outpatient clinics. Most recently, she was a site director in a supportive housing residence for formerly homeless adults.

Elizabeth offers remote sessions through a HIPAA-compliant teletherapy platform called Zoom. Teletherapy allows for greater flexibility for my clients. She also works out of two offices located in downtown Brooklyn, and is available for appointments Monday-Friday from 10am to 8pm.


Message to clients

Therapy is an opportunity to speak with a someone who is objective, nonjudgemental, and compassionate. This is a time just for you. Our therapeutic relationship is essentially a blank slate as I will not have outside associations with your friends, family, or work colleagues. Your time in therapy is an opportunity to process experiences, thoughts, and feelings that you may not feel comfortable sharing with others. In my sessions, I take a collaborative and strength based approach with my clients. I will guide you to look at situations and relationships from multiple perspectives and I will gently challenge you as needed. I believe that every person has a unique set of strengths and we will work together to overcome your challenges and obstacles.
In my sessions, Art Therapy is always an option for you. Art Therapy can be utilized in two ways. The first is to allow for the use of art materials to be calming and soothing. Clients often feel more comfortable speaking about difficult topics while simultaneously using art materials. The second is to collaboratively analyze what you've created towards the end of session, often through metaphor and symbolism.
