Katie Down - Psychotherapist, LCAT, Art Therapist in New York
I work from a compassionate, integrative approach to healing and wellbeing through mindfulness, sound and creative arts therapies, guided imagery and music, as well as EMDR for trauma and symptoms of PTSD. Through the expressive/contemplative arts and mindfulness, we can discover new neural pathways, deepening the connection to wellbeing and nurturing a sustainable healing process.
I have a speciality in trauma, PTSD and anxiety. I received my training with Dr. Laurell Parnell in EMDR and at the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy's Trauma Institute. I have found EMDR, bi-lateral stimulation and mindfulness to be highly effective in helping my clients ease their stress.
I am Reiki certified and incorporate therapeutic sound in my Reiki sessions.
