INTEGRATIVE CREATIVE ARTS PSYCHOTHERAPY
An Integrative Clinical Practice Specializing in the Treatment of Trauma
Eco Art Therapy
Working to develop the field of EcoArt Therapy, Mor is driven to help mend the fractured attachment between humans and the rest of the natural world. She notes that "when we heal our broken attachment to the ecosystems around us, we will heal our relationship to ourselves and one another. EcoArt Therapy is a salve for our consciousness, for our deepest wounds and traumas we now see perpetuated in Nature. Bridging awe and wonder with intentional acts of creative expression inherently improves our health and the health of our planet." Mor is now the Long Island Coordinator for the Climate Psychology Alliance of North America and is working to educate other mental health professionals and the public on the mental health impacts of climate change.

ABOUT INTEGRATIVE CREATIVE ARTS PSYCHOTHERAPY
HOPE AND HEALING
Every individual who comes to my practice is profoundly powerful, possessing vast strength and possibility. While past trauma may trap us in false narratives about ourselves and others, together we will tap into your authentic voice and identify your personal path towards healing, growth, joy and a restored sense
of confidence. Calling upon an integrative, evidence-based approach, we will work to instill
a renewed sense of balance, inner-peace and self-love.
"Play and art therapies differ from traditional 'talk therapy' in that they engage emotions n a direct and physical way, generate creative energy as a healing force, and creatively enable clients to express their problems and conflicts
In my trauma-informed practice, we call upon evidence-based modalities including Creative Arts Therapy Mindfulness, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Somatic healing and Positive Psychology to curate individualized and integrative treatment plans for adults and teens.
Creating together capitalizes not only on the collective energy of groups, but also on the curative and resilience factors found in good old social support. When individuals share life's challenges of loss, bullying, motherhood, or trauma through art with each other within a community it's a deceptively simple, yet profoundly powerful intervention. Creating together in this way allows us to see that we are more similar than different, to be witnessed and valued by others, and, best of all, transcend ourselves by becoming part of a greater whole.
The implementation of Art Therapy in my work is sometimes supplementary, sometimes primary or sometimes it merely informs the verbal exchange. No experience with art materials is required, nor is engagement with art materials during sessions a requirement for treatment. Every individual who enters my treatment space is powerful, safe and cared for.
I have witnessed vital transformations take place after relatively short periods of engagement in treatment with me. Change is possible. Growth is waiting for you. I look forward to connecting with you and witnessing your personal journey to hope and healing.
