Christine Pic
Hi, I’m Christine, she/her. I’m a psychotherapist and licensed Creative Arts Therapist in New York. I work with adults & adolescents (12 yrs & up).

“My approach to therapy is trauma informed and resilience oriented, and involves exploring & finding your strengths through mindfulness, embodiment, and creative arts interventions.”

I am also passionate about social justice issues, especially providing equity-oriented care within the mental health settings, and energized about making Psychotherapy and Creative Arts Therapy accessible to BIPOC and LGTBQIA+ communities.

What does therapy with me look like?

Together, we'll explore the themes that might be appearing in your life story. I use talk therapy, mindfulness, somatic techniques, art making, DBT, and CBT interventions in sessions. If art & music making are uncomforable for you, we can stick to talk therapy. Together we will co-create spaces where you can safely explore your beliefs and patterns in order to bring about change and healing.

Who I work with:

I work with adults and adolescents who need support navigating challenges, including but not limited to managing anxiety, depression and major life events or transitions. Alongside talk therapy I specialize in using music therapy techniques (including singing, songwriting, therapeutic playlist making, music & imagery, and vocal psychotherapy) in order to support your own self care practices.

My identities:

My pronouns are she/her/hers, and I am a 1.5 generation Filipina-American, a Californian, a New Yorker, a musician, an all-around creative, and a nature lover.

Before joining Creative Now Therapy:

I've worked with adults & adolescents as a music teacher and as a music therapist for over 10 years in a multitude of settings. My work with adults, and older Asian American-identifying adults in inpatient psychiatric care has informed my ability to engage clients with empathy and compassion. Furthermore, I have also worked with adolescents and families in outpatient psychiatric care in order to provide care to not just the client, but with parents and their families through parent education.
