Prior to her graduate studies, she studied psychology at Fordham University. Casey 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. Casey assists in coordinating programs for children in the foster care system as well as families currently living in a domestic violence shelter. She 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.
