Expressive arts therapy helps get to the authentic root of issues with individuals and groups through the arts. This unique therapeutic style assists in coping through major life changes and helps to increase self-care and mindfulness. Expressive arts is a discipline of helping and healing that uses the arts as its basis for discovery and change. Expressive arts integrates the visual arts, movement, drama, music, writing, play and other creative processes to foster personal transformation.

No artistic skill is needed just a willingness to be open to the process. The creative process of generating art during a traumatic time offers an opportunity for transformation and making connections. The real work in healing does not come when we merely tell our stories.

This connection helps rewire our nervous systems and create accessible pathways to a relaxed state. These creative tools can also offer a surprising change of perspective and allow for new self discoveries.
