What is Creative Arts Therapy?

Creative arts therapy encourages and teaches people to express and understand emotions through artistic expression using  and through the cre

Our Philosophy

Humans have expressed themselves with symbols throughout history. Masks, ritual pottery, costumes, other objects used in rituals, cave drawings, Egyptian hieroglyphics, and Celtic art and symbols are all visual records of self-expression and communication through art. (encyclopedia.com)

The process of self-expression can improve our physical, mental and emotional well being. It helps to manage feelings in a positive way and gives us confidence to address and resolve past and present challenges.

We call this process Creative Arts Therapy.

Our goal, through the services we provide, is to teach individuals how to express themselves through art, therefore building confidence and other skills that will help in all aspects of life.
