More About Amy Barr, CAT-LP

Amy Barr received her master’s degree in art therapy from the Pratt Institute in New York. Utilizing art therapy techniques and psychotherapeutic insight, Amy helps clients address and explore an array of challenges, from trauma, emotional problems, and relationship difficulties to chronic illness, the end of life, or even the prospect of incarceration. She has worked at Rikers Island, Alzheimer’s treatment centers, and everywhere in between.
Amy believes in the transformative power of art, especially when joined with empathetic insight and conversation. On her therapeutic approach, time devoted to making art versus time devoted to discussion varies based on clients’ needs and wants. But drawing and dialogue, the visual and the verbal, always go hand-in-hand. This approach is particularly helpful for patients confronting issues that are otherwise difficult to explain or discuss.
Both art-lovers and skeptics alike are welcome. No special skills are needed to profit from art therapy – just the courage to engage in creative expression.

What Our Patients Say

The treatment was so much more comfortable than I thought it would be. I experienced slight discomfort during the first two treatments, but it was smooth sailing from then on!

Greg

Before starting TMS, I was so depressed that I couldn’t eat, sleep or get out of bed. I had stopped doing the things I enjoyed entirely, because I didn’t have the energy or interest. It took a few weeks, but I started to notice myself thinking more positively and it kept improving from there. Thank you, Dr. Cohen!

Lauren

My depression improved dramatically throughout the course of my TMS treatment. I am finally able to sleep through the night and am looking forward to living my life again. My entire family noticed the difference in me before I did. TMS changed my life after decades of failed medications and terrible side effects. I finally feel like “me” again.

Ben

Dr. Cohen and his team are so fantastic! They did everything they could to make me feel comfortable, and I started feeling better after the first dose of Ketamine!

Verified Patient

I am so thankful to Dr. Cohen and his team! Thanks to them and the Ketamine treatment, I’m feeling better than I have in years. I was pleasantly surprised that there were no side effects.

Matthew

The suite in which I received the treatment was comfortable and welcoming. I was able to relax during the treatments and each time I left, I felt more at peace.
