Art therapy isn’t just for kids. It’s about using a different way to communicate.
It’s a way to get at things you don’t have words for, or for bringing to light things that you haven’t noticed before or thought of in a long time.
No drawing skills required.
Anyone can make art. When we make art in therapy, it’s much more about the process than the final product.
It really doesn’t matter how “good” your art is. What matters is what it meant for you while you were creating it, and what symbols you have unconsciously put into the piece.
Because yes, that will happen. You probably won’t realize it until we’re sitting there talking about your image, but there it will be – a hidden answer, an unresolved feeling. It always comes out in the art.

Heck, we might even go crazy and get out the sand tray. Whatever we try, I can promise you it won’t be anything you can’t handle.
