Art Therapy and Drama Therapy Groups for Healthfirst and Cigna customers

We are proud to offer psychotherapy groups that are covered by Healthfirst* and Cigna healthcare plans.

For over 10 years, New York Creative Arts Therapists PLLC has been at the forefront of providing quality creative arts therapy services. Our therapists are all skilled at facilitating group experiences that do more than teach art or drama. Our group psychotherapy offerings are diverse and effective in helping resolve real life problems and concerns.  Short term group therapy is frequently more effective than individual therapy because of the wealth of learning that occurs between group members.  If you haven't tried group therapy before, these offerings should sound pretty inviting. Come join us...

Therapeutic Improv for Adults 
Saturdays 11:00-12:30  •  Starts January 9th • Meets for six sessions.

It's not about being funny, it's about being free.  Using the art of improvisation and acting this group offers a supportive and nonjudgmental space for personal development. 

Art Therapy Group: Self-Care and Self-Exploration
An ongoing group for women. Register for 5 weeks increments.
Mondays  6:30  - 7:45

A supportive place to nurture your creativity;  use artmaking for personal discovery;  and to build a community of women who want to take time for themselves.

Art Therapy Group for Middle Schoolers
new day and time to be announced.

Have fun creating art and talking about things that are important to you. Express yourself in a judgement-free zone, and learn tricks for getting back up when life gets you down. It's like an art class but with a teacher who cares more about how you feel than about how good you are at drawing bowls of fruit.

Parenting Tune-Up!
Tuesdays  7:15-9:00pm • Starts January 5th• Meets for six weeks.

Fine-tune your parenting skills and reduce burnout in your family's life with this supportive and didactic group that will help you tap into proven strategies from play therapy and Parent-Child therapies. (For parents only)
