Art therapy is a creative therapeutic modality that can address the whole body; connecting our body, mind and spirit simultaneously. Art therapy can be crucial in promoting imaginative and uncensored artistic authenticity to gain a better understanding of ourselves; past, present and future.
Art therapy can allow us to externalize our thoughts and feelings. It provides individuals the opportunities to address their dreams, hopes, and goals, as well as the difficulties in our lives such as experienced trauma, processing grief and loss and our internalized and externalized fears.
Art therapy is more focused on the creative process of creating meaning versus the artistic product. In telling our stories through art, we find a direct path to physical, emotional and spiritual healing.
