Amy DiGennaro, MFA, MA, AT is an artist and therapist who helps people create the lives they want to live using creative expression in therapeutic and educational ways. For almost twenty years, she has worked as a university art professor and artist mentor helping people connect with their creative vision and develop their skills. In her professional studio practice, Amy has explored the ways that experience is lived through stories and how those stories create meaning in our lives. Amy has an MFA in Studio art from Rutgers University and an MA in Counseling and Psychotherapy from Adler Graduate School.
As a therapist, Amy helps people to develop meaningful relationships with their problems in order to transform difficulties into creative projects that move them towards their preferred ways of living and being. Amy is passionate about co-creating a world of possibilities and positive growth to foster well-being in the people who come to consult with her. Amy offers various forms of counseling to help you connect to what you give value to, focusing on your beliefs, knowledge, and abilities to work through struggles and build the life you want to live.
Do you have to be an artist or artistic to work with Amy? No! She offers a wide range of approaches that can, but doesn't have to, include creative expression in its many forms. Working from a postmodern, social-justice perspective, Amy uses a positive, strengths-based approach to help you create meaningful relationships with your problems in order to relate to them in preferred ways. Amy’s main practices are narrative and art therapies, but she is also interested in mindfulness practices, body-based approaches, and lifelong learning. Amy works with individuals (adults, children, adolescents) and relationships (couples and family) and also offers consultation, mentoring, and coaching.
Many people see Amy for talk therapy rather than art therapy.

I am an artist/therapist who offers various forms of counseling to help you connect to what you give value to, focusing on your beliefs, knowledge, and abilities to work through struggles and build the life you want to live. I take a positive, strengths-based approach to help you create meaningful relationships with your problems in order to relate to them in preferred ways. Together we can transform difficulties into creative projects that move you towards your preferred ways of being. My main practices are art and narrative therapies, but I am also interested in mindfulness practices, body-based approaches, and lifelong learning. I am committed to approaching all the work I do with an anti-racist, social justice approach that also blends my interests in the intersections of those areas with things like Buddhist, feminist/queer/post-structuralist and narrative philosophies and therapies.
