Have you ever struggled to find the words to describe an experience or to express how you feel?
Art can be a language for us to express what is difficult to verbalize or it can simply be a playful way to learn more about ourselves.
Art Therapy can be employed to aid clients in exploring your emotions, increasing self-awareness, promoting problem solving, and encouraging healthy coping skills. Anyone interested in exploring their thoughts and feelings through creative activities can engage in art therapy; you do not have to be an artist! Art therapists use a wide range of artistic mediums to suit the interests and needs of each individual client.
At LifePath, our approach to art therapy is strengths-based, collaborative, and nonjudgmental. We believe that you are the expert on your own life and your artwork; we will not place judgments or interpretations onto your work.
“I found I could say things with colors and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way-things I had no words for.” -Georgia O’Keefe
Art therapy is used to aid in the treatment of a variety of concerns including:
- Grief and Loss
- Anger Management
- Life Changes and Transitions
- LGBTQ+ Identity and Exploration
