Art Therapist

Kristy graduated with an MA in Art Therapy from New York University in 2013. While attending school in New York, she interned for one year at a homeless shelter, providing art therapy groups for men with mental illness and chemical addictions. Kristy then went on to work at a housing settlement, and was able to implement an art therapy program in the early childhood school system, providing group and individual therapy for at risk children with cognitive and social-behavioural difficulties. During this time, Kristy also worked as part of a student-run team to provide support through art therapy for families affected by Hurricane Sandy.

 

Shortly after graduating, Kristy returned home to Trinidad and Tobago with the intention of providing therapy for those in need, as well as advocating for the use of creative arts as an effective form of therapy. While she enjoys using art with all populations, she especially loves working with young children, as she believes that they experience life and emotion in the purest form. Kristy currently treats children and families confronted with diagnoses including autism spectrum disorders, developmental and cognitive delays, and ADD/ADHD, as well as behavioural and emotional regulation difficulties, trauma history, bereavement, anxiety, and other emotional challenges. Kristy is currently a Registered and Board Certified Art Therapist with the Art Therapy Credentials Board (US), a member of the American Art Therapy Association, and is the President of the Art Therapy Association of Trinidad & Tobago.
