  • A Wonderful Way To Live

    To the Editor:

    For you, Newtown, I am first an art therapist and an educator. Next I am your neighbor living and working in New York City, as an artist and psychotherapist. I am compelled to share my gratitude with you as a community for being strong as a necessary healing process thrust upon you uninvited.

    How I became interwoven into your town’s tapestry is a story of your kindness and human connection. As the Founder of the Emerald Sketch, I chose to respond to your requests and to take action immediately.
