Expressive Arts Therapies

As an Art Therapist I often hear things like " I am not an Artist." or "I cant draw."  Art Therapy and the Expressive Arts are not about being an "Artist" or making a perfect picture.

Art Therapy and/ or Sandplay Therapy are incorporated during sessions with clients.  Art Therapy and Sandplay both provide a chance for the individual to use various art materials and or Sandplay figures to help explore and express emotions and underlying issues.  Art Therapy and Sandplay incorporate mindfulness to help clients begin to release old patterns and ways of thinking through the use of the unconscious mind. 

It is my job to help facilitate the path to wellness by providing the client with a safe space to begin their healing journey.
