About

Are you looking for a new creative way to deal with difficulties in life and get in touch with your best self? Do you feel like you’ve tried everything with your teen, but they struggle to benefit from traditional talk therapy? As art therapists, we incorporate talk therapy with art making to help our clients unlock their creative potential, look at problems with fresh eyes, and develop new coping skills for dealing with difficult emotions. If you or your child is feeling blocked by past trauma, stuck in destructive patterns, or overwhelmed by depression or anxiety, then I encourage you to reach out. You are not alone.
Our Art Therapists on staff work with ages 10 and up and have extensive experience working with anxiety, depression, trauma, substance abuse, self harm, grief, LGBTQ+, & pregnant or postpartum individuals. We offer a safe space to explore, grow, and even have fun in the process. No prior experience or skill with art is necessary to benefit from art therapy.
We invite you to check out our website and send us a message to schedule a free phone consultation. We offer individual sessions as well as groups and work with ages 10 and up. We look forward to working with you or your child!
