Some commonly asked questions
Heartsong offers 3 distinct creative arts therapy group modalities: art therapy, music therapy, and dance/movement therapy. (See above for specifics about each modality). Individual creative arts therapy is also available upon request.
Our in-house group programming takes place on Saturdays in our White Plains, New York office. The building is fully equipped for those with special needs.
Each group is 45 minutes in length.
Group placement is based on each individual’s functioning level, modality(s) of interest, and age.
Groups are led by certified and licensed creative arts therapists and assisted by interns and volunteers.
In addition to enhancing social skills and communication within the group, each therapist focuses on clinical goals for each group member. Although groups are always fun, therapists are working towards meeting specific therapeutic goals. Creative arts therapy groups are different therefore from art, music, and dance classes as they are not focused on teaching a particular skill. Instead, the focus is on meeting specific clinical goals.
To reach Heartsong by public transportation, take the Metro North (Harlem Line) to the White Plains stop. Walk (approximately 10 minutes) or take a taxi from the Metro North station to 277 Martine Ave.
