Art Therapy

Art therapy offers a creative way to express and articulate emotional experiences that may be difficult to put into words. This type of therapy can be a comfortable way for children and teens to begin talking about problems.

Art therapy works from the basic principle that the therapeutic use of art, a form of self-expression, facilitates the release and exploration of a wide range of emotions in a safe and contained framework in order to create a coherent narrative. The focus of art therapy is not on the end product created but on the process by which it is created. Art therapy is used with children, adolescents, adults of all ages, groups and families.
