"Emily was very kind and attentive. I felt like she was assisting me with my thought process rather than just listening passively." - Former Female Client

"Emily is incredibly warm, easy to open up to, and truly listens and responds in a helpful way. We do art therapy together which is new for me, but having an art background I find it incredibly positive. I feel that she takes my history and current afflictions into consideration and has tailored little mindfulness exercises for me during our sessions, which I find not only helpful but such a wonderful sign that she understands the nature of what I am trying to get help with. She even welcomed my partner to come in for a session after I had explained that we were having major communication issues, and she helped us both so much. I feel extremely lucky to have found this practice and my therapist after having my fair share of negative therapy experiences and would highly recommend Emily. She is a gem." -Female Client

"I cannot speak highly enough about Emily's approach to my challenges. We have developed a strong working relationship and my life has become so much more solid because of our emphasis on mindfulness. I have been very impressed with this practice. Thank you!" - 26-year-old Female Client

"My child experienced issues due to a difficult divorce.  Our work with Emily has greatly helped my child become better able to express her feelings and needs so that she feels safe, happy and loved. I am grateful for Emily's patient and calm manner and ability to focus sharply on the needs of my child." -Mother of Former Client

"Looking back over the past two-years that I worked with Emily, it reminds me of a poem that was famous when I was younger, called 'Footprints in the Sand'. I have a good faith, so this is not to say Emily was my higher power, but she helped me through some really difficult times the last two-years. Emily has been a great listener, leader, guide, supporter and Art Therapist. She taught me to let art be my therapy and it works well for me. I could not of asked for a better person to work with." -Former Client

"Emily is one of the most compassionate, professional therapists I have had the pleasure of working with. She is excellent with families and children."--Mrs. Ruschelle Khanna, LCSW: Psychotherapist & Former Colleague

"I’d like to say with great confidence that Emily is one of the best Art Therapists and clinicians that I’ve ever seen." - Child Psychiatrist & Former Colleague

"Emily was my supervisor for over a year at New York City Children's Center and she was wonderful to work with. Emily truly understands and models the tenants of DBT and mindfulness that she teaches her clients. She believes passionately in the interventions that she provides, and that enthusiasm in turn helps her clients believe that they can make positive change in their lives. As a supervisor, Emily was supportive, informative, and always quick to help." -S.F., ATR-BC, LCAT, Former Colleague

"Emily is passionate about guiding her clients to use effective skills to enhance treatment. The changes I have witnessed are remarkable, to say the least. We have seen Emily show the importance of using art as a tool to connect with emotions within the scope of also teaching DBT skills and Mindfulness. It is a humbling experience to watch Emily with her clients. They learn to trust again. Her repeated success in helping her clients is remarkable and impressive. She is gentle in her approach and I find that clients look forward to spending time with Emily in Art Therapy and DBT skills groups. They constantly ask for more Art Therapy as they continue to improve. Finally, I have witnessed the transformation of many individuals and I can validate that Emily’s work is important, progressive and impressive. It is thrilling and rewarding to see individuals changing and growing, right before our eyes! I can offer nothing but praise regarding Emily’s professionalism and dedication in her capacity as Art Therapist, DBT Coach and DBT Skills Leader."- A.C., Special Education Teacher & Former Colleague
