Art & Play Therapy | Lynbrook & Manhattan Offices
Kristi is licensed in mental health counseling (LMHC) and is a Consultant to the practice. Kristi has been published on Psychcentral.com, has assisted Susan with research in bio/neurofeedback as well as various presentations, facilitates Creative Healing workshops, has taught for Biofeedback Resources International, and is trained in Eye-Movement and Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy for trauma and anxiety with both children and adults. Her approach combines neuro-behavioral and mindfulness training with cognitive therapy. Kristi works with her clients to unravel and process through any past conflicts or heaviness that can prevent them from moving forward freely. The bio/neurofeedback and mindfulness training then allows the client to feel more confident with their present behaviors and choices. EMDR is a suitable and research-based treatment for those who feel bound or "stuck" by their trauma and/or symptoms. Kristi also utilizes the techniques of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), play (including sand tray) and art therapy and works with children and adolescents as well as adults. She feels inspired by each and every one of her clients and is honored to be a part of their growth and journeys.
