As trained Art Therapists, and other helping professionals with emphasis in the expressive arts, we see the world, our clients, and their healing through an artist’s lens and use art with the creative process to help clients reconnect with parts of themselves previously disowned, forgotten, or undiscovered. At times, just the basic element of color alone can help us connect to our clients and their creative choices. When they pass a sheet of watercolor paper, so weighted by materials, we can physically feel the load they have been carrying with recognition of how powerful they can become once that weigh is lifted.
Even when words are too tangled to share, the materials speak. We know this, not just from training on the therapeutic use of art media and the neuroscience to support it, but because we have discovered the value of art-making for ourselves prior to our professional training. This fuels our passion for Art Therapy and our mission to help others heal the wounds that keep them from experiencing the beautiful, creative flow that is life. We understand what it is to be human and experience fear, pain, anger, loss, and the full gamut of emotions that comes with living a brave, compassionate journey. We are honored to help guide you through such difficult terrain in order to experience the other side of humanity: joy, love, gratitude, abundance, passion, strength and resilience.
