Expressive Art Therapy
The expressive arts combine the visual arts, movement, drama, music, writing, mindfulness, and meditation, and other creative processes to foster deep personal growth and community development.
A person is not required to have an artistic ability to use or benefit from expressive art therapy.
Expressive art therapy adds a unique dimension to the “traditional” therapy approach that allows the clients to empower themselves, and to promote well-being.
Expressive arts therapy can be used as a part of the treatment strategy for a wide variety of behavioral, emotional, mental health conditions, such as PTSD, depression, anxiety, illness, and stress.
Expressive art therapy helps children and adults of all ages. It can be done in individual, couple, and family therapy settings.
I completed my expressive art therapy certification from the Institute of Creative Mindfulness.
