What is to give light must endure burning. ~Victor Frankl
Art therapy uses art media, the creative process and the resulting artwork as a therapeutic and healing process.
Clients – young, old and in-between – are able to explore their feelings, reconcile emotional conflicts, foster self-awareness, manage behavior, develop social skills, improve reality orientation, reduce anxiety and increase self-esteem.
Art therapy is practiced in mental health, rehabilitation, medical, educational and forensic settings – as well as in private practice, in workshops and small-group settings. Clients come from all walks of life, facing a full array of challenges. Individuals, couples, families and groups can all benefit from various art therapy formats.
