Casey McDermott Burke, MPS, LCAT, ATR-BC, LCAT Supervisor
Casey completed her Masters in Art Therapy and Creativity Development from Pratt Institute. Prior to her graduate studies, she studied psychology at Fordham University. Ms. Burke has utilized the medium of art therapy with a variety of populations, including children on the autism spectrum, developmentally delayed adults, women living with HIV/AIDS, and families in the child welfare system. More recently, Casey has had the opportunity to work with both children and adults combating anxiety and depression by implementing a combination of both art and evidence based techniques, specifically CBT and DBT. She has been an integral part of the ARTS Rx team for the last 10 years. Casey assists in the daily coordination of our partnership programming involving children in foster care as well as families living in domestic violence shelters. Ms. Burke has been able to work alongside music, movement, and drama therapists in the past, and has witnessed the benefits of a multi disciplinary approach. Casey believes strongly in the healing potential of art therapy and the importance of both verbal and non-verbal expression.
