"Art is not always about pretty things. It's about who we are, what happened to us and how our lives are affected."
Elizabeth Brown

Art Therapy

Art Therapy reflects the combination of two different disciplines: Art and Psychology.

The incorporation of art making within a therapeutic space allows for the exploration of thoughts, feelings and intuitions to be developed in a visual capacity.  This release can be an inherent opportunity for healing but also, paired with discussion, presents an enhanced exploration of the suppressed unconscious and stored inner wounds and dialogue. 

Who can use Art Therapy?

This creative modality presents a rich and diverse form of therapy that can be used with a wide range of people from individuals (kids & adults)  to couples, families, and groups.  

Art Therapy for Kids!

Art therapy works best for ages 8 and up who have some ability to discuss their needs and have a desire to explore who they are and what they need.  Art can be incorporated as a means of communication in place of words as well as a modality for making visual and usable tools for emotion regulation, executive functioning, self-esteem growth and general awareness for self-development.

Art Therapy is for Adults too!

Combined with the traditional talk therapy, art enhances opportunity for self-exploration on a deeper level.  The collaboration of the two can uncover what has been tucked away, stored or resisted.  When visuals come to life through colors, forms, movement and so on, it is a connecting agent to the unconscious and sub-conscious parts of the brain where potential suppression is impacting one's ability to grow and heal. 
 


Art therapy is a witness to the therapeutic process with using visualization of ones inner self being unveiled, healed and restored.

"The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things,
but their inward significance."
