“Central to expressive arts therapy is the belief that the process of making art — in any media — is as important as the content it expresses. Awakening to the innate creativity within themselves, clients bring the wisdom of a deeper self into the light of day. They reignite the creative spirit, see their lives in new ways, and tap powerful new resources for confronting life’s challenges. Even when one is dealing with painful or frightening issues, the experience of expressing oneself through a creative process can provide fresh perspectives and a sense of hope and empowerment.” (Living Arts Counseling Center)
I am an associate of the Living Arts Counseling Center with an MA in Counseling psychology (Emphasis in Expressive Arts therapy). I use mediums such as paint, music and poetry along with traditional psychotherapy.
