What is Art Therapy?

Art Therapy is a comprehensive mental health service that integrates a creative approach to psychotherapy. Art Therapy enhances embodied experience through self-esteem and resilience building and reducing stress and cortisol levels. ATC identifies and dismantles obstacles through the development of self-awareness and self expression to create sustainable coping mechanisms. Learn more about ATC's clinical approach on our About page.

How is Art Therapy different from traditional talk therapy?

It can be difficult to recognize let alone verbalize challenging emotions. The impact of traumatic experiences on the brain and nervous system and societal norms create obstacles in safely discussing emotional issues. Art Therapy addresses these issues through integrative methods to engage our whole selves in ways that are distinct from verbal articulation alone. Kinesthetic, sensory, perceptual, and symbolic opportunities invite communication, which can circumvent the limitations of language and enhance a sense of safety.

What are the benefits of Art Therapy?

Art Therapy builds self-understanding to increase emotional resilience and frustration tolerance. ATC's clinical approach aims to express and organize thoughts and feelings to process and assess behaviors in order to increase our capacity for joy, acknowledge challenges, and seek creative means to improve quality of life. Strengthening our creative thinking permits growth and self exploration in novel ways.
