Katherine Prudente, MA, RDT, LCAT is a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist (LCAT) specializing in drama therapy and psychotherapy. Katherine believes that the creative process assists in working through problems by allowing access to unclear thoughts and feelings.

Currently, she is the Coordinator for Health & Wellness Curriculum Development & Health Educator at Friends Seminary.
