Inside all of us is FEAR.
Inside all of us is ADVENTURE.
Inside all of us is…A WILD THING.”

Jennifer Breslow, LCAT, ATR-BC, CASAC
Art Therapist & Psychotherapist in NYC

I have been using the creative process inherent in art making as a source of expression, joy, refuge, and self-understanding throughout my life. My early interest in communicating and finding meaning through the combination of images and words initially lead me into the graphic design profession.

After working in the design field for several years, I felt the pull towards work that would be more meaningful to me. Following my passion for art and an interest in psychology, I went back to graduate school for art therapy. I still keep a foot in both worlds, which keeps me balanced and fulfilled and able to be present and engaged in work that I really love.

I am a Licensed Creative Art Therapist in NY (LCAT)Board Certified Art Therapist (ATR-BC) and Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor (CASAC). As a therapist in New York City, I have worked with a diversity of populations, in a variety of clinical settings, including outpatient mental health, inpatient and outpatient substance abuse treatment and several community based programs.

Animals have always been a part of my life and I know first hand the pain of losing a beloved pet. I am trained in pet loss counseling by the Association of Pet Loss and Bereavement and this is a part of my practice close to my heart.

In my work with clients (and personally!) I’ve navigated the murky waters of anxiety and perfectionism, the challenges of being authentic and vulnerable, and the difficult journey to accept and find a place for the wounds and early experiences that shape us.

I would love to help you feel more at home in yourself.

I was part of Art Therapy: The Movie, a documentary showing how art therapy is being used around the world. At the time I was working at a residential healthcare facility for adults struggling with addiction. If you’d like to learn more about the art therapy field, check out the film.

Fifty art therapists from NY created this coloring book to educate the public about art therapy and the therapeutic value of making art. I was happy to contribute a page to this project. Check out the coloring book.

The loss of a pet can be devastating. The Art Therapy Pet Celebration Workshops are a new project I am starting to help people create, connect and celebrate with others to heal from their loss. Visit the workshop page.
