Noëlle Ghnassia Damon, LCSW-R, lives and works in the Hudson Valley of New York. Traditionally trained in child and family therapy, her studies have spanned Eastern and Western philosophy, psychology, and spirituality. Her work, which began in 1978, is the convergence of life long passions involving the creative and expressive arts, the body's natural healing powers, and the essence of human connection. The resulting psychotherapeutic approach is a holistic and dynamic combination of strength-based modalities including EMDR, Sandplay, Solution-Focused, and Body-Centered Therapies. Involving the mind, body, and spirit, she encourages her clients to discover and explore their own inner wisdom to heal and resolve old traumas and disabling core beliefs. Noëlle specializes in the treatment of traumatic stress with clients of all ages and families of any configuration. Her clients speak of her work as gentle, effective, and profoundly life changing.
