Art Therapy is used to improve cognitive and sensory-motor functions, foster self-esteem and self-awareness, cultivate emotional resilience, promote insight, enhance social skills, reduce and resolve conflicts and distress, and advance societal and ecological change.”

Art therapy is conducted in a safe and confidential environment where clients are invited to use different art medium to explore their feelings, reconcile emotional conflicts, foster self-awareness, manage behavior and addictions, develop social skills, improve reality orientation, reduce anxiety, and increase self-esteem.
Artistic skill is not required to gain benefit from art therapy services.  Art Therapy involves exploring one’s challenges and strengths through the creative process, with a Master’s level art therapist present to guide the sessions and help process the artworks and feelings that arise. Self expression though art is like exploring and viewing oneself from a different angle. It allows us to see ourselves more objectively and can provide an outlet and a space to explore difficult emotions and experiences that we find hard to put into words.
