Ethan Cullinan is a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist, Board-Certified Music Therapist, and psychotherapist specializing in Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) offering online therapy services in New York State.
Clients who work with Ethan are often finding themselves feeling stuck in certain patterns, emotions, or thoughts that can lead to increased stress, sadness, and worry, subsequently disrupting the flow of one’s daily life. Ethan begins therapy by working with the client to understand how these challenges exist in the context of the individual’s inner and outer worlds, learning who the client is as a whole person. From this holistic perspective, the client and therapist collaborate to determine personal goals and values, which will become the basis of the course of treatment.
Ethan practices through a humanistic lens, allowing clients’ strengths to be the engine that drives therapy, and emphasizing the development of a strong sense of trust, openness, and safety between client and therapist. Ethan offers ACT techniques to help clients become more mindful of / grounded in the present moment, more accepting of inner experiences, and better able to make conscious, committed choices & changes that are in line with their personal values. Ethan also incorporates creative elements into the therapeutic space, providing opportunities for clients to move into music, art, and other means of self-expression as ways to further explore oneself beyond the scope of words alone.
Ethan believes wholly in the therapeutic process & relationship as means to address clients’ challenges in a focused and healing manner. Ultimately, this process can lead to sustained & values-based committed change, as well as more freedom, meaning, and satisfaction throughout all facets of one’s life.
Presently, Ethan is seeing clients in New York through secure telehealth sessions only.
