Kitty Wicks is a big believer in the mind-body connection. Her 11-year-old practice incorporates physical activity into play, cognitive behavioral, psycho- and other therapies. An avid long-distance runner, boot camp-taker and Pilates devotee, she says she recognized the positive effects exercise had on her own psyche and decided to apply cardio and weight training to sessions with patients who want to give it a literal go. “A lot of people actually need help accessing exercise because it’s not something they know or believe that is a part of their identity or believe that they can do,” says Wicks, who is a certified personal trainer in addition to a licensed clinical social worker. –Stephanie Kanowitz
