The creative process is a cathartic tool for self-reflection. You do not need to be an artist to participate in art therapy. Whether you enjoy sand tray work, watercolors or sculpture, the art process is a path to channel your energy and increase self-expression. I will provide various materials depending on your preference and help you to unlock your subconscious and link your art process to your healing process.
From The American Art Therapy Association:
“Art therapy is based on the understanding that the creative process of art making is healing and supporting of personal development. Through art making, its observation, and self-reflection under the guidance of an art therapist, one can increase self-awareness, cope with illness, stress, and trauma, enhance cognitive abilities, and enjoy the life-affirming joy of creative endeavors.
Art therapists are professionals trained in both art and therapy and hold a Masters or Ph.D. degree in art therapy or a related field. Art therapists work with children, adolescents, and adults and provide services to individuals, couples, families, groups, and communities.”
