Benefits of Group Therapy

Art Therapy

Art therapy combines creative therapeutic processes and psychotherapy to enhance self-exploration, healing, and understanding. Through using various art-making materials,  clients may express thoughts and feelings that might otherwise be difficult to express through language alone.
