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.

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

 

I have much experience and passion for supporting individuals in having and building relationships that work.

Meet Linda Turner

With 20+ years as an NYC based Art Therapist / Psychotherapist, I have seen over and over that whether using art or other transformational approaches, creativity is key. And while what brings you to our work is uniquely yours, being in it together can make all the difference. I trust that no matter what we have been through, which parts of us are at the forefront of our actions and experiences, that at our core we are whole.

Clients often reach out for Art Therapy when they are experiencing relationship challenges, anxiety and/or depression, have lived through trauma, are exploring life transitions, and/or struggle with self esteem. Along with providing Art Psychotherapy, I actively create art and can support you as a Creativity Coach. And, with 10 years as a Career Counselor/Coach at the Fashion Institute of Technology, I also offer Career Coaching.
