Creative Expressive Arts in Counseling
At Enrichment, we have a client art studio. This is available for you to “check out” and schedule private time for a nominal studio/supply fee of $5 per hour during our normal hours of operation. You can also purchase canvases and a few other items in the art studio. It is stocked with lots of art supplies and affords you the opportunity to work uninterrupted in a safe therapeutic setting. If you are working on an in session therapeutic art assignment, this space provides an opportunity for you to continue that creative work after the counseling session ends.
In session we will often work with you on a creative writing or art process that helps you tap into deeper places than traditional talk therapy might. We are not art therapists, we use art and writing in therapy as part of the process work.
I have seen on many occasions, when a client is stuck, and can’t find the words to say what needs to be shared, a sketch pad and pencil unlocks them and they are able to give a different kind of voice to their pain.
If you desire a place to use creative expressive arts to aid you in your healing, please give us a call or email us from our contact us page.
