Healing through the Arts


WRITING (Poetry/Story)


Free flow of thoughts are placed on paper through the acceptance and nurturance of your own voice!


The Center for Creative Arts Therapy's creative arts therapists are experts in a range of poetry, playwriting, fiction and non-fiction and journaling. Our providers work to establish a connection, building from a supportive relationship, writing theory and techniques are skillfully applied to obtain desired changes.


Creativity is as important to human happiness and well being as love and work. Some of the greatest thinkers of all time, including Aristotle and Plato, have reflected on why creativity is so fundamental in our lives. Through expressive writing, you learn to communicate with others, express feelings, modify behavior, develop problem-solving skills, and learn a variety of ways of relating to others. We provide a safe place to express thoughts and feelings.
