A VISION FOR HEALING
Sound Well Creative Arts Therapy, PLLC, is an integrative creative arts psychotherapy and intuitive healing practice with a focus on mindfulness, creativity, sound and music to help foster insight, acceptance and joy while providing tools for managing symptoms attributed to anxiety and depression.
Katie Down, (LCAT, MT-BC, MMT, MM) is a trauma-informed psychotherapist and licensed creative arts therapist, incorporating sound, music, EMDR, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Reiki to help people to alleviate symptoms of anxiety, depression and physical pain from trauma by recognizing our inherent healthy selves through body-mind awareness and creative expression. She is the Department Chair of Music Therapy at the Brooklyn Music School and co-directs Maha Rose's Sound School and the SoundBodyTM sound training program. Katie runs clinical supervision groups each month for healing arts professionals working with sound and music in their clinical practice.
Creative Arts Therapy is psychotherapy using the expressive arts as a way of processing and opening in the journey of self-actualization and well-being and it's through the line of self-inquiry in creative processes that we are able to access a deeper understanding and acceptance of ourselves and situations that might otherwise seem insurmountable.
Drawing from the tools and techniques found in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Deep Listening, creativity, and somatic psychotherapies, we are able to identify patterns and make conscious decisions for creating new pathways towards optimal health through what I call the 3 C's of Mindfulness in Therapy: Compassion, Creativity and Curiosity - to help us connect to the knowledge and wisdom of the body and the mind already inherent within each of us.
Healing is a journey, both internally and externally and the mystery of that journey is held safely in our work together to achieve balance in the midst of life's challenges.
