Paula Acheson, MS, ATR, BC, Art Therapist in Olathe
The aim is to re-structure your philosophy so that you can function to your fullest potential. There are so many core messages we hold which no longer serve us. Take this time to focus on and leave behind tension, stress and trauma. Find this a safe place to acknowledge loss and cope with change in your life. Connect with others who survive similar problems in new ways. Take the skills you learn and apply them on a daily basis.
A picture is worth a thousand words. Images are a bridge to your inner state of being, emotions and thoughts. Anyone can use art therapy to recover, restore, redefine and resolve. Together we will focus on you as the director of your story.
Evening and weekend hours available. Individual, couples, group or family art therapy sessions. Virtual support available after an initial session. Please complete and return the intake form prior to attending a group.
