is a Board Certified and Registered Art Therapist as well as a Mental Health Consultant in New Jersey. She specializes in early childhood as well as children with special needs. Ms. Quiroga has over seven years of comprehensive professional experience with children from varied populations and ages in a therapeutic setting.
Diane truly believes that every child is unique and therefore, has individual needs. She affirms that Art Therapy provides a method of communication and expression when words simply cannot. Her therapeutic approach is child-centered and she practices this through her focus on building a trusting relationship with the child, as well as creating a safe environment in which the child can express and create freely. Through the art therapy process, the child-- guided by Diane-- has the opportunity to grow socially, emotionally, cognitively, and developmentally.
In order to create the most optimal and efficient method of treatment, Diane collaborates with members present in the child's life to understand the child's needs as well as consistently participate in treatment.
Diane has worked with children ranging with various disorders and concerns including the following:
▪ autism spectrum disorders
▪ pervasive developmental disorder
▪ sensory processing disorder
▪ attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
▪ conduct disorder
▪ oppositional defiance disorder
▪ school and separation anxieties
▪ domestic violence
▪ sexual abuse
▪ cerebral palsy
▪ global developmental delay
▪ down’s syndrome
▪ grief and bereavement
▪ adoption and divorce
▪ bipolar disorder
… and a series of varied and / or co-occurring physical and cognitive concerns.
