USE ART

AS YOUR VOICE

Expressive Therapy

Expressive therapy is based on the idea that the creative process of art making is healing and life enhancing and is a form of nonverbal communication of thoughts and feelings.  We used expressive therapy in psychotherapy and counseling because it serves as another language to help people of all ages explore emotions and beliefs, reduce stress, resolve probems and conflicts, and enhance their sense of well-being.

 

Like other forms of psychotherapy and counseling, it is used to encourage personal growth, increase self-understanding, and assist in emotional reparation and has been employed in a wide variety of settings with children, adults, families,  and groups. It is a modality that can help individuals  of all ages create meaning and achieve insight, find relief from overwhelming emo- tions or trauma, resolve conflicts and problems, enrich daily life, and achieve an in- creased sense of well-being
