Hello! I am Monica Duque, a NY and NJ licensed art therapist, EMDR trained, clinical supervisor, artist, entrepreneur, educator, and a mom of 3 energetic boys.
I have been working in the art therapy field for over 15 years, across diverse settings with populations including children, adolescents, adults, couples and families. I was fortunate to foster the development of future art therapists by being part of NYU's and SVA's faculty teams. I am passionate about the creative process as a journey in development and growth. I believe in the power of art as a medium for social connection, expression, and healing.
Art Therapy... when words don't come easy or are not enough.
"I paint my own reality. The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration." - Frida Kahlo
