What is Art Therapy?

Art therapy can be helpful because you're ableĀ  to explore, process and understand aspects of yourself and your story that can be hard to talk about. Art provides a different lens through which to view life and begin your healing journey.

I believe that even if you have been told that you "can't do art", everyone is born with the ability to be creative. Art Therapy can help you access your creativity to provide hope, discovery, and new life options.

In Maryland, Art Therapists are licensed professional psychotherapists who provide services involving traditional counseling principles and methods in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of psychiatric problems, emotional conditions, or mental conditions of groups or the individual (Source: Maryland Health Occupations Code Section 17-308).
