Grace Holden (She/Her), CAT-LP

Grace is a Psychotherapist, Dance/Movement Therapist (R-DMT) and Creative Arts Therapist (CAT-LP) at Greenpoint Psychotherapy. She believes all people have an intuitive voice within, and sometimes it calls out during a challenging transition, a crisis, unmanageable symptoms, a rupture in a relationship, a trauma or a loss. Grace provides a safe environment to attend to individuals coping with these difficulties, and seeks to support the strengths within each of her clients. Grace’s knowledge of the mind-body connection guides and supports individuals toward self-awareness and inner growth. She integrates psychodynamic therapy, mindfulness and movement therapy, which can help clients to identify and release traumatic experiences that may be held in the body. With somatic mindfulness, (a method for noticing patterns in thoughts, emotions and sensations) clients are invited to explore learned patterns from the past, to be curious about the present, and to work toward desired goals for the future. She is experienced in guiding clients to explore unconscious processes, to invite insight and clarity to flow more freely into being. Grace works collaboratively with individuals to determine the most meaningful approaches for therapy.

Grace believes in establishing a trusting therapeutic alliance with clients for transformative work to take place. She is experienced in working with teens and adults coping with depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship challenges, eating disorders, and mood disorders. She holds a Master of Science in Dance/Movement Therapy from Sarah Lawrence College and earned her BA with an emphasis in Interpersonal and Relationship Communication from the University of Minnesota, Duluth. Grace’s collaborative approach to therapy fosters client-led goals that are uniquely aligned to an individual’s strengths and lived experiences.

Anna Eckert-Kramer (She/Her), LMSW

Anna is a compassionate and client-centered LGBTQIA+ affirming therapist fluent in both English and Spanish, who uses a nonjudgmental, empathic, and trauma-informed approach to cultivate self-acceptance and self-compassion. She is highly dedicated to building effective, collaborative working alliances with clients based on mutual respect, trust, and understanding. She strives to find ways to meet you where you are and honor you as the expert in your own unique life experiences, preferences, and needs.

 

Anna tailors her therapeutic approach to meet clients’ needs and preferences and therefore uses a wide range of techniques from modalities including CBT, the Interpersonal Process Approach, Motivational Interviewing, and Somatic Experiencing Therapy. She also has experience delivering Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) to trauma survivors, especially survivors of intimate partner violence, of all genders and sexualities. Anna enjoys working with older teens and adults (ages sixteen and up) on all needs, but particularly specializes in working with adults dealing with anxiety, depression, self-esteem and identity issues, grief, and trauma (especially traumatic experiences related to domestic violence and intimate partner violence, including emotional / psychological abuse).

 

While Anna is a cis, straight woman, she has lived experience of being raised by out LGBTQ+ parents at a time when this was less common and accepted. This lived experience helped shape her worldview and inspires her to practice in an anti-oppressive manner that critically examines and holds space for different aspects of clients’ intersectional identities. Anna has an MSW with a concentration in Clinical Social Work from Rutgers University and a BA in Spanish and Literature from Bennington College.
