Art Therapy in NYC

Do you struggle with creating, developing, growing and/or maintaining relationships, romantic or otherwise?

 

If so, let's work together to support you in building and having the loving/trusting relationships that you desire.

I offer a wide range of workshops from career focused to community building to stress reduction that can be brought to you, your organization, group, friends, or family.

 

We can also collaborate, and/or I can design a workshop/event for your specific needs.

Meet Linda Turner

With 20+ years as a NYC based Art Therapist / Psychotherapist and Coach, trained in IFS, AEDP and ISP, I have seen over and over that using creative and transformational approaches invites healing in new, powerful ways, and that being in this process together can make THE difference. I have also seen, and trust, that no matter what you have been through, that as you develop and build compassion, as you listen to and understand your self in new ways that healing and growth occur.

In Art Psychotherapy, I most often work with individuals on relationship challenges, anxiety, grief, trauma, stress, depression, self-esteem, and / or exploring life transitions. I can also support you as a Creativity Coach, having an active art making and selling process of my own. And, with 10 years as an Assistant Professor, Career Counselor, Coach at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), I offer Career Coaching.
