As a Creative Arts Therapist who is dedicated to empowering children and families through a variety of strengths-based experiences, Sarah continues to inspire healthy connections through the creative process. She believes that relationship is how we heal, and grow throughout our human development.
She is a graduate of Lesley University’s Graduate School of Social Sciences with a Master’s of Art in Expressive Therapy and Mental Health Counseling. After community-based therapy work with children and families in Boston, Sarah moved to Brooklyn, NY, where she gained New York state licensure in Creative Arts Therapy. She provided a wide variety of therapeutic caregiving in NYC, including Rainbowdance and dance therapy groups for children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders, art and play therapy for at-risk Elementary school children, and arts-based groups for mommy-and-me classes. Sarah has worked with children ages 0-18, with a special focus on toddlers and preschoolers. In the past year, Montessori-based relationship building and child empowerment has been very crucial in her practice with young children.
Sarah will lead the extended day program which will be a play-based environment that incorporates music, movement, and art and is informed by the Montessori principles of understanding the uniqueness of the individual child and respectful guidance.
