I currently work as a Creative Arts Therapist, Writer and Fine Artist.
How I help my clients
My clients are from all walks of life - children, teens, adults, families, community groups and professional artists themselves.
All of my clients face obstacles that come from being human. My goal is to help them discover more joy and meaning in their lives. I believe that through various forms of artistic experience we can gain the insight and motivation necessary to be 'happy' again.
My growing practice
I have been a bit of a nomad in the past few years while I define and build a practice that suits me best. I have been working with folks in Long Island, Brooklyn, New York and Western Massachusetts (Berkshires).
Traveling and working in so many places has helped me to gather education and experience in several new areas. I have worked with people in the midst of really tough times - grappling mental illness, cancer, trauma, loss of a loved one, divorce, family problems, criminal proceedings, foster care and homelessness, among others.
The work ahead of me
Some of us are just struggling to get by. Others are adapting to things they can never change. I have helped people with disabilities succeed both in spite of their limitations and because of them. And I enjoy educating others how to do the same - in their communities, schools, homes and professions.
My curiosity follows me wherever I go. I have found that a life without Art feels empty and so I am grateful to have it as a constant companion. I will always be painting or writing or maybe just gluing an autumn leaf on a sheet of blue tissue paper with my morning coffee.
I invite you to browse this site and my gallery site as well. Please contact me for a consult at no charge, to say hello, ask a question or to simply share an idea.
Sincerely, Marney Schorr, MA
