About Art Therapy:

"The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance." ~ Aristotle


Art Therapy reflects the combination of two different disciplines: Art and Psychology

Art Therapy is a rich and diverse form of therapy that can be used with a wide range of people; such as individuals, couples, families, and groups. 

Art Therapy holds the assumptions that the creative process is inherently healing and therapeutic, and that art is a symbolic means of communication. 

Art Therapy creates new possibilities for communication and access parts of the brain that words do not. 

Art therapy acts as a witness to the therapeutic process and as a way to help people negotiate and evaluate problems and solutions differently.
