Goldberg, a native of New York who currently resides in Connecticut, received her Masters in Creative Art Therapy in 1995 and is a member of the National Honor Society for Counselors. While she has consulted as an art therapist for various organizations, her first love is painting. For Goldberg, painting is the equivalent of breathing.
