Hi! 

 

Thanks for checking out my site!

 

A little about me...

 

I'm an artist and designer based in the New York City area, currently pursuing my M.S. in Art Therapy at Syracuse University. My current interest is in women's health and taking a holistic, spiritual, and mindful approach to recovery, perfectionism, and hormone-related mental health. 

 

In my artwork, I love playing with bold colors and different mediums to capture feelings, memories, and the charm of imperfection. Whether it's through the eclectic mix of digital collage, the dynamic energy of abstract gouache, the sweet nostalgia in my watercolors, or the unique beauty of modern Kintsugi, each piece is a little piece of my heart, reflecting life's imperfections and emotions in a colorful, approachable way.  

 

I hold a degree in interior design from the Fashion Institute of Technology and a B.A. in Human Services and Sociology from Simmons University. I also hold certifications in Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders and Postpartum Loss and Grief Training. I am working towards certifications such as my CASAC, CPP, SheRecovers Professional Designation, International Women’s Health and Human Rights from Stamford University, and Women’s Health certifications from George Washington University. 

 

For a decade, I successfully operated a fine jewelry brand, Doryn Wallach Jewelry. During this time, I received recognition from prestigious publications like Harper's Bazaar, Women's Wear Daily, and Vanity Fair. Additionally, I was honored to receive the 2019 Design Excellence Award in Fine Jewelry from the Accessories Council.

 

With a strong passion for women's mental health, I embarked on a journey to create and host the podcast "It's Not A Crisis." dedicated to addressing women's issues in early midlife. Through this platform, I connected with hundreds of women and offered them guidance and support. It became clear that my true calling was to assist people in navigating life's challenges. Reflecting on my background in the arts and my commitment to mental health, I realized that my ultimate aspiration was to become an art therapist. 

 

Currently, I am an intern at Art Therapy Lab, where I am gaining invaluable experience in co-facilitating art therapy groups to a diverse clientele as well as working on development and implementation for the future of ATL

I’m a proud member of the International Association for Premenstrual Disorders, Postpartum Support International, and an associate member of the American Art Therapy Association, and The International Expressive Arts Therapy Association.
