Krissy Christofakis is a Clinical Art Therapist living and working on Long Island, New York in addition to having practiced art therapy internationally. She has experience with children, adults with intellectual disabilities, geriatrics and behavioral health. As a kid she played the drums and danced, but her main passion was always art. 

Anything she could get her hands on became part of the art. Through Grounded Gem she found a sense of fulfillment by providing therapeutic experiences to many more individuals in the comfort of their own homes!

 “This exploration is what comforts and fosters continuous growth”. She believes that the beauty of art is that it can be personal or public and either way the process is a journey of its own. Krissy has a Masters in Clinical Art Therapy and Counseling, and is a registered Art Therapist, board certified nationally, and licensed Creative Art Therapist in New York.
