Art therapy offers an unique way to explore, reflect and process. Using a variety of mediums, art therapy allows individuals to communicate things that are perhaps difficult to verbally communicate and allows individuals to create and therefore see things in a new way. It’s a process-based therapy and no art background is needed in order to engage in this type of therapy. Art therapy is an incredibly effective intervention for folks presenting with a broad range of experiences and diagnoses. It has the unique ability of integrating mind and body, creativity and logic, and ultimately creates opportunity for growth, empowerment and deeper understanding.
