This group is for art therapists who are new to the field. It is a place to process various stressors and successes as you work towards your licenses. We meet every other week for 2 hours, in the evening, to make art, present case studies, and find support from like-minded individuals. ATR-BC credentialing supervision is available, as well as support in attaining your LCAT permit.
Stephanie Saklad is a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist in Queens, New York specializing in anxiety, existential challenges, life transitions, and supporting family members of individuals with severe mental illness. Drawing upon her training in a social justice and psycho-dynamic program, her particular area of expertise is in helping clients uncover and recover from trauma. She works closely with each individual, providing a trusting, therapeutic relationship and promoting healing at a comfortable pace.
Art therapy with Stephanie involves combining traditional psychotherapy with creative outlets such as collage, clay, and paint. Art therapy can be a valuable tool to ground in the present moment and access deep-seated emotions in a nonverbal way. Her work is guided by empowering clients to build confidence, confront challenges head-on, and regain control.
Stephanie welcomes adults to her practice for individual psychotherapy. Outside of private practice, she is highly involved in the community, supporting those with chronic mental illness.
