Foundations Counseling understands that, at times, words can be limiting, but a picture can speak a thousand words. The language of art allows us to express ourselves in ways that words cannot. Our counselors utilize art therapy as an integrative approach to harness this language and provide the best possible therapeutic experience for you or your child.
The counselors at Foundations Counseling believe that all individuals have the ability to express themselves creatively and the finished art product is less important than the therapeutic process involved in the act of creation. Therefore, you do not need to be an "artist" or "artistic" to benefit from the creative process.
What You Can Expect with Art Therapy Activities
A trained art therapist will work with you to take a new, gentler approach to the creative process. The art therapist will offer a variety of mediums and will help you complete a form of creative expression. The directives for a therapy program vary from highly structured exercises to spontaneous expression, depending on the goals you have established for your counseling. The art will be used in conjunction with traditional counseling to verbally explore creative expression in order to understand deeper meaning and discover transformative information that can be applied to your life.
