GROUP THERAPY

Help yourself and others in group therapy while benefiting from the support of other people with similar experiences. Group therapy can take many forms since its focus is based on the needs of the group members. In general, the creative arts therapist helps the group members talk with and learn from each other about how to handle common problems.

 

The creative arts therapies give voice to groups through expressive art materials, music, movement and role play. When words are not available for expression or communication of difficult feelings, the arts can speak instead. It is a language without words, offering a means for individualized and unique personal expression. Both the art itself and the process of creating art can provide children and families with a non-verbal avenue to communicate, problem solve, express self and emotions, and positively cope with difficult experiences and life changes.

 

Let us support you and your family through compassionately creative counseling and arts-based psychotherapy services. Contact us to schedule a consultation.
