*ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS!* If you're struggling these days, you are not alone. Our stress levels are sky-high, leading to burnout, anxiety, depression, feeling "numbed out", and breakdowns in our relationships. You might even have a sense of always feeling on edge, or chewing on thoughts or stresses that you just can't seem to resolve. Sound familiar? Good news! You can overcome these issues, learning to feel more resilient, more stress-proof, and more of a friend to yourself. As they say: stress is inevitable; being stressed out is preventable.
There are many stress factors in the lives of kids that can cause them to become sad, anxious, angry or confused such as illness, loss of a loved one, the separation or divorce of parents, or adjustment to a new environment. It is often difficult for these children to put their feelings and concerns into words. Art psychotherapy is a unique way of helping children find solutions to their emotional distress. Children love to make art - to tell stories, to play imaginatively, and to express feelings. Art psychotherapy uses children's natural delight in the creative process to gain a better understanding of their inner world.
