About Art Therapy

Art therapy is a type of psychotherapy that uses art and the creative process to enhance emotional, social and physical well-being.

Art serves as a vehicle to communicate emotions when “words are not enough.”  The creative process is therapeutic in itself and helps reveal new perspectives and insights into old and stagnant problems.  No prior experience with the arts is necessary.

Issues addressed by art therapy include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Poor self-esteem
  • Academic and work performance
  • Deficits in focus and attention
  • Substance abuse
  • Eating disorders
  • Unhealthy relationships
  • Grief and loss
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

…and much more.
