I found I could say things with color & shapes that I couldn't say any other way -things I had no words for"

Board Certified & Licensed Professional Art Therapist


HI! My name is Christina Auriemma and I am a Board Certified and Licensed Professional Art Therapist with Family Dynamics. I believe in the healing power of art and its therapeutic qualities as it offers clients a creative means of self-expression, emotional processing, and positive coping. Through a person-centered approach to therapy, my goal is to create a safe, non-judgmental and comfortable space to navigate feelings, gain greater self-awareness, and promote healing.


For the last 10 years, I have worked as an art therapist in a variety of settings including pediatric hospitals, inpatient substance abuse rehabilitation, Clergy consultation and treatment services, Day Habilitation for adults with developmental disabilities, psychiatric outpatient and intensive day treatment for children and adolescents, and various afterschool programs in NYC and Northern NJ.


I specialize in utilizing art therapy for children and adolescents with emotional, behavioral and medical needs, as well as those navigating grief and loss. Along with art therapy interventions, I have training in utilizing CBT, DBT and mindfulness based approaches to coping with life stressors. No art experience or talent is needed to participate in art therapy as it is my role to offer appropriate art materials and interventions to meet the emotional and psychological needs of clients.
