What is Art Therapy?

Art Therapy uses the visual arts to communicate feelings that cannot be expressed by words alone. In my private practice clients create images as a visual response to what goes on in their minds. Those images often come from the unconscious and hold important personal meaning. The images produced externalize and resolve internalized fears, conflicts and blocks. The creative process and the reflection on the art help you express and understand feelings and patterns of behavior. You do not need any art experience. I am specially trained to promote change through involvement in art making within the context of a therapeutic relationship. By providing a safe environment and unconventional means of exploration, young children, adolescents and adults work through conflict, grow by facing life's challenges and accept themselves.

Art therapy improves self-awareness and self-esteem. Art therapy is very beneficial for people struggling with:

  • Life transitions
  • Relationship issues
  • Addictions
  • Co-dependency
  • Depression
  • Post-traumatic stress
  • Eating disorder
  • Grief and loss
