Her expertise extends to supporting neurodiverse individuals, both children and adults, who grapple with a range of challenges, including ADHD, dyslexia, dysgraphia, ODD, OPD, anxiety, autism spectrum disorders, behavioral and executive functioning deficits, as well as struggles with self-regulation, depression, grief, and trauma.

Moriah's skillset encompasses various areas, including emotional processing, self-regulation, and life skill development. She finds particular joy in collaborating with children, individuals, and families who embrace art therapy as a pathway to expression and healing.
