Katherine Prudente, MA, RDT, LCAT is a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist (LCAT) specializing in drama therapy and psychotherapy.

Her clients come from all walks of life differing in education, class, sexual orientation, and ethnicity/race.

In addition to her private practice, for 10 years Katherine was a Program Manager at Hallways, a program dedicated to preventing high risk behaviors through social-emotional learning in schools. Currently, she is the Coordinator for Health & Wellness Curriculum Development & Health Educator at Friends Seminary.
