Art therapy is a nurturing, organic and free flowing form of self-expression. When words are hard to find, creative expression allows you to communicate your inner most thoughts and feelings in a joyful and gentle way so that you can be seen and heard. This is so important during times of stress and difficult situations. We need to find meaning in what we experience in life and how these experiences make us feel. Art therapist helps you gain insight and self-awareness of who you are and what you need to heal. Our goal is to guide you by finding meaning in your creative expression and ultimately healing, so that you can move forward in life from anything that has been holding you back from your full potential.
