In our art therapy sessions with children, we focus on various goals such as improving behavior at home and in school, enhancing fine motor skills, boosting cognition, managing anxiety, addressing symptoms of trauma, and facilitating self-expression. Through art-making, play, writing, and other creative activities, children can express themselves in a safe and non-intimidating environment. By incorporating child-centered and play therapy techniques, we create a nurturing space where children can explore their emotions and experiences freely and creatively.

Art therapy offers a unique and approachable form of expression for teenagers, especially when words are hard to come by. In our sessions, teens find a new outlet for expression and connection through creative integration. This process helps them navigate the complexities of adolescence, providing validation and fostering a sense of independence. By combining elements of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) with art therapy and talk psychotherapy, we help teens develop coping strategies, build self-esteem, and manage anxiety and other emotional challenges.

*Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a psycho-social therapeutic intervention that focuses on changing and developing new thinking patterns (cognition) by learning more about the ways that we interact with others, ourselves, and our environment (behavior). CBT incorporates various strategies that aim to aid a range of difficulties such as depression, anxiety disorders, trauma, various mental illnesses, relational challenges, eating disorders, etc. The incorporation of CBT techniques is contingent on the client's journey, needs, and goals. Incorporating art-making and art therapy with CBT can be an incredibly beneficial modality of therapy as we can creatively explore the goals of CBT.
