Why art therapy?
Art therapy uses creative techniques to process challenging thought patterns, gain insight into one’s emotions and behaviors, and most of all, it helps create an alternative dialogue. Bringing to life something you’ve envisioned can be a useful means of self expression when words are far too overwhelming to process. Making art bridges the gap between verbal and non-verbal communication, while also illustrating our “inside and outside” feelings. Overall, art therapy can be an incredibly effective tool to process life events, thoughts, and emotions that can sometimes seem insurmountable. Whether you’re a child, teen, or an adult, together, I know we can strengthen your self-esteem, manage behaviors, and develop coping skills.
