AMY DIGENNARO, MFA, MA, AT

I am an artist/therapist who offers various forms of counseling to help you connect to what you give value to, focusing on your beliefs, knowledges,* and abilities to work through struggles and build the life you want to live. I take a positive, strengths-based approach to help you create meaningful relationships with your problems in order to relate to them in preferred ways. Together we can transform difficulties into creative projects that move you towards your preferred ways of being. My main practices are  narrative and art therapies, but I am also interested in mindfulness practices, body-based approaches, and lifelong learning.

 

You don't have to make art to work with me! I also do talk therapy.

Narrative therapy is based in the notion that we make meaning of our lives through the stories we live. These stories are constructed within the larger stories that make up our social, political, and interpersonal contexts.

Art therapy is a form of expressive therapy that uses art materials, such as paints, drawing, clay, collage and even digital media such as photography and tablet technology. Art therapy combines traditional psychotherapeutic theories and techniques with psychological, interpersonal and somatic aspects of the creative process and self-expression. In mental health, art therapy is used in many clinical settings with diverse populations including children, adults, and families. As a part of integrative health care, art therapy and expressive arts therapy (art, music, drama, movement, and writing) complement and support traditional and complementary health practices and interventions.

*I use the plural, knowledges, to recognize that we have multiple ways of knowing: intellectual, somatic, creative, intuitive, etc. I believe that connecting to as many of these ways of knowing as possible creates the most potential for understanding, healing and well-being.
