Art therapy is a therapeutic tool that uses the power of art to deepen one’s connection with their unconscious thoughts, fears, dreams, desires, and much more.  Many people choose art therapy because the creative process appeals to them; they are “stuck” in talk therapy because it has not gone deep enough.

Art therapy can access subconscious and unconscious material that may not otherwise be revealed. Expressions in art therapy can help to release us from oppressive emotional binds, such as learned helplessness, profound sadness, traumatic stress reactions, numbness or depressive apathy.

Art therapy is an enriching application for children in therapy. Children do not possess the same verbal processing abilities as adults and therefore often cannot explain or converse in the same manner.  Therefore art therapy is the perfect method to grasp at core issues in children.
