Art therapy is an alternative approach to healing most issues through
the process of making art. All ages can benefit from art therapy. Art
therapy combines processing feelings through the art modality with
sublimation or formed expression.
Many materials are used in a non threatening environment. Clay, paint,
puppetry, photography, collage & drawing. Through pounding, mixing,
sculpting, and tearing clients have gained insight into their own emotions
and gain confidence to create images that represent where they are and
where they need to go to through sublimation.
As a licensed art therapist Iíve worked with clients of all ages in many
difficult situations. I have worked for over 25 years as an art therapist
through the process of making art a vehicle of expression. Through my
guidance, insight and the playfulness of the material one can alleviate
anxiety and move forward to the next stage of healing and adjustment.
