Art therapy is a therapeutic intervention that combines talk therapy and various art making modalities to provide clients with additional ways to create, express, and process what is going on around them. Clients don’t have to be super creative or talented or trained to benefit from art therapy. From paint, to clay, to crayons, feathers, and glitter, there’s a lot of opportunities for clients to express themselves.
Art therapy isn’t just a way to feel better and have extra stuff to stick on your fridge, it’s a space where perfectionists can let their guard down, gain insight and inspiration, and feel relaxed. Some art therapy clients even come away from art therapy sessions with new hobbies and ways to cope with a renewed sense of excitement and joy. Art therapy requires no artistic experience and is an additional tool to reach our end goals together.
