Expressive Arts Therapy For Adults 

The Language of the Arts Replaces the Language of Distress

In an environment of safety and unconditional acceptance, the arts offer you an extensive, rich and colorful vocabulary to express and communicate your pain, distress, hope and joy. It is an invitation for embodied self-reflection, creative play and reconnecting with what brings you joy. Expressive Arts Therapy can help you cultivate a curious and non-judgmental stance towards your emotions and develop healthy coping skills through art, beauty and play. 

Enjoying The Creative Process

Adults with any art making experience can benefit from therapeutic creative expression. We experiment, take risks, play and let go of the final outcome by suspending judgement and witnessing what shows up. When we are skilled improvisors, we learn to adapt and stay open to the natural unfolding of experiences - we become resilient.

"Finding the medium that excites your imagination, that you love to play with and work in, is an important step to freeing your creative energies."
