Arts Therapy for Empowerment
Our practice supports children, young adults, families & seniors. We are especially sensitive to the needs of caregivers and their care recipients. At The Patient Palette, the arts will meet you where you are with a person-first approach to care. We offer Art Therapy, Dance/Movement Therapy, Music Therapy and Drama Therapy. We are a NYC and DOE vendor and partner with schools and organizations to bring services directly to their community, provide services at our studio in Bay Ridge, or offer telehealth sessions.
Creative Arts Therapy encourages creativity, self-inquiry, accessibility, communication, learning, reflection, spontaneity, reparation, growth, and healing. It fosters a person's expressive and receptive language, social, cognitive, fine motor and emotional development.
Our Practice is Rooted in Caregivers & Their Care Recipients
Informal & Formal Caregivers give so much of themselves. We encourage you to carve out time for the exploration of self-care through the arts. We offer both in-person or telehealth sessions independently, in a small group setting, and alongside your loved one, or individual, that you assist.
Creative Arts Therapy nurtures a person's strength of autonomy, pride in personal efforts and accomplishments, and offers a deeper understanding of where one might require partnership to better meet one's own needs.
Inclusive to Our Community
Our practice welcomes all members of our community. We believe that those seeking a creative means to care for their mental health should have one accessible—stigma free and with the opportunity to awaken a new part of their imagination. After all, each of us is singularly entrusted with the commitment to our self-care.
Lisa Mirabile, Founder and Clinical Director, has over a decade of experience working with persons from vast backgrounds of care settings in NYC. Lisa focuses on the individual, their support network, or lack thereof, through the creative process. We assist those with ASD, ADHD, intellectual and communication variances, eating variances, vision loss or blindness, Alzheimer's Disease and other neurocognitive variances, such as 2e, as well as the bereaved, those undergoing major life adjustments, formal and informal caregivers, and those seeking to interpret their personal experiences and improve their well-being.
Whenever illness is associated with loss of soul, the arts emerge spontaneously as remedies, soul medicine...When the soul is depressed, isolated, mad and distraught, artistic images appear.
