Ashley Kleinman, MA, RDT, LCAT

Ashley Kleinman, MA, RDT, LCATI am a certified Lucid Body Teacher who began working with Fay Simpson in 2005, and I have since taught The Lucid Body in a wide variety of settings. In addition, I am a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist (LCAT) and Registered Drama Therapist (RDT). I received a Masters (MA) in Drama Therapy from the internationally renowned Drama Therapy Program at New York University. I am a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist (LCAT) in the state of New York and a Registered Drama Therapist (RDT.) As a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist, I facilitate both group and individual creative psychotherapy sessions utilizing a variety of creative modalities. I have worked clinically and creatively with children, adolescents, adults, elders and families in a variety of settings. As I continue on my own journey, I continuously witness and experience the power of creativity to reach our goals, find our strength and tell our stories.

I not only view creativity in life as a valuable gift, but also as a vital tool for survival. All of us have the ability to creatively explore and view our lives in ways that point us towards our goals with growth, compassion and understanding. In addition, I am a certified Lucid Body Teacher and work to incorporate the, inherently therapeutic, Lucid Body teaching method into my work as a Creative Arts Therapist. For those Lucid Body students who are discovering and grappling with new and overwhelming feelings, you will find that engaging in therapy concurrent to your classes will be an important step in finding clarity, strength and insight in your creative journey. I am able to include as much or as little of the Lucid Body language, as each individual client chooses, while maintaining strict confidentiality between myself and client.

My areas of specialties include:

-personal growth and exploration
-trauma recovery
-depression
-anxiety
-anger management
-family dynamics
-mood regulation
-compassion fatigue in the role of caretaker
-body issues and self-esteem
-body awareness through the 7 chakra centers
-artistic worth and creative blocks

I work with adults, adolescents and children. I look forward to hearing from you and learning more about your journey. Contact me though phone or email (akleinmanlcat@gmail.com/516.544.8009) to set up a phone consultation.
