I Believe

I specialize in working with people who want to improve their relationships with their family, friends, partner and, most importantly, with their "self".  My experience has given me a unique perspective and clear understanding of how people develop their beliefs and their personal ways of relating and coping. I am skilled at helping people find new possibilities, and identify how to gain some traction on a new path, or figure out what may be holding them back.

The work I do is founded on 4 main beliefs about human existence.
1. Mindful practice is essential for deliberate growth.
2. Understanding and being understood is vital for human connection.
3. Although many things cannot be controlled, a person's response to a situation can have a huge impact.
4. Healthy and authentic communication can be learned.

About Sally Collins

Sally received her Masters in Psychology for Art Therapy and Marriage and Family Therapy at Phillips Graduate Institute in Encino, California. She worked at the Child and Family Study Center at Cedars Sinai Hospital with special needs and emotionally disturbed children and their families. She also has experience in other clinical settings working with trauma, anger management, learning and developmental disabilities, and mood disorders. Additionally, Sally worked extensively in school and group settings helping children and adults with social skills and emotional regulation. In addition being a part of the clinical team at New York Creative Arts Therapists, PLLC, Sally was the Clinical Director of the POINT program at the WJCS, providing therapeutic services to developmentally disabled adults. Sally has a BA from NYU in Art History and Fine Art, and has practiced art extensively through her life. She believes art allows a means to express the stories and human elements that words cannot always convey, and that creative expression is an integral part of the therapeutic process for regulating, healing, processing, growth and transformation.
