Professional statement

Moira Casalino is a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist located on Long Island, NY. Moira supports individuals and couples who would like to move past trauma. This trauma holds them back from being present and engaged in their daily lives and in their relationships. They constantly feel jumpy or fearful, even when they know that they’re safe. They also might have difficulty in social situations or find it challenging to communicate effectively with others. This can lead to high levels of anxiety and relationship conflicts. It can even result in panic attacks that leave the individual feeling exhausted, spent, and frustrated.

Moira’s approach to therapy centers on the mind-body connection. She understands that trauma or negative feelings often exist within the body, so the body’s reactions and responses need to be addressed. She uses mindfulness techniques to help clients identify how their bodies react to stress or to confrontation. From here, she teaches clients how to self-soothe and manage their reactions so they can regulate their feelings. Moira also uses a psychodynamic approach and encourages clients to reflect on their drives, needs, and instincts. She guides clients through introspection so they can make connections between how they feel or how they act and what’s happening on an internal level. She also uses arts therapy and play therapy to help clients connect with their inner children and inner worlds.

Moira earned a Master’s degree from Pratt University. She is a dance and movement psychotherapist who believes that no one can talk themselves out of feeling upset. Instead, she supports clients as they access their resilience to cope with difficult feelings, leaving them to feel more comfortable and in control of their own lives.
