Deborah Adler Creative Arts Therapy P.C.
I have been going to Deborah for a few months at least once a week. She is very patient, thoughtful, and compassionate. She actually listens to me and gives me good feedback on my feelings/thoughts. She is very reliable about getting back to me when I have a question or comment that just can't wait until the next appointment. Sometimes, I am unable to go to the office so we Facetime, especially in bad weather or when I have a panic attack. She is very willing to work with me as an out-of-network patient, filling out insurance forms for reimbursement. I highly recommend her as a therapist! One of the best.
"A great experience working with Deborah Adler doing Art Therapy. The Art Therapy helps to elicit your thoughts and feelings about your inner experiences. Very helpful for me and cathartic. A highly recommended modality."

"Being a firm believer in the whole self experience of therapy.. I appreciate the initiative style and directives executed by Deborah. I was in talk therapy for a long time and sometimes coming up with feelings, words got in the way so that took a lot of time and energy. Art Therapy is beyond words in the office of "Dr. D". I have the organic tactile experience I use to express my feelings and connect with my authentic self. I am grateful for what art therapy with Deborah has done for me now and will do for me in the future."

"As a creative person, I've always been drawn towards arts and crafts. From school days to the present, creative arts have always helped lift my mood and give me an inner peace. Working with Ms. Deborah Adler over the last few months is a continuation of this search for peace. After the loss of my mother, I have been to therapy and talked through the issues, but the kind of happiness and peace I get with art therapy is different. The various projects we have worked on so far in my therapy use all different materials (from paint & paper to feathers & rocks). Ms. Adler helps me unravel the thought behind each "art move" and talk through issues while being creative at the same time. Art therapy isn't just for people of creative backgrounds, it is a tool that we all can use (and an amazing one I believe). When paired with an art therapist like Ms. Adler, I feel like I can work through my depression and she can help the creativeness come out with ease." - Sahra, 30 years old
"Very fun and makes me calmer. I get more ideas when she says, "Do you want to play catch". We play in the sand, make games, and do more. But she is very nice. And I enjoy being with her."
