Art Therapy

Senior woman artist sketching.

Art therapy focuses on building a trusting relationship through empathy and creativity. Participants are encouraged to utilize art as a tool to learn new coping skills and process and overcome challenging issues or complicated traumas. Using art as a therapeutic tool can help clients express themselves in new ways, regardless of artistic experience or aptitude. Art therapy is focused on the process and the journey, rather than a final product.

Art therapy can be used to address:

  • Anger management
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement/grief/loss
  • Depression
  • Family relationships/family therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Hoarding
  • Interpersonal relationships
  • Isolation
  • Life stresses
  • Life transitions
  • PTSD/trauma
  • Raising a child with special needs
  • Stress

Eligibility is determined based on the specific needs of the individual or family.

We offer services via a variety of locations and platforms: telehealth, in office settings, and mobile therapy for those who are eligible.

If fees are applicable, they are established on a case-by-case basis. If you are in need of assistance, please do not let financial concerns keep you from calling for help. Payment options may include a sliding scale, Medicare, and/or additional assistance.
