I am currently booking individual sessions online over zoom. Sessions involve 3 progressive phases and are geared towards teenagers and adult clients.
Phase One: Introduction, on Zoom. Here we discuss what problem brings you to therapy. Once talked through we will come up with an appropriate art directive and I'll provide instructions for you to follow to create your work.
Phase Two: Art making - in the comfort of your home. Here you will take the time you need to create an art piece. Once finished, you will send me an email with a write-up about your experience and an image of your artwork.
Phase Three: We jump on zoom again for a final discussion and processing of the work.
COMMUNITY ART MAKING
Working artistically at a community level can have powerful effects. The more people that are involved, the more varied and creative the end product can be. Creating art together offers opportunities for healing, sharing ideas, creating new relationships, and experiencing new points of view. Long lasting effects are felt when the art created together remains in a public place were community members can see the results of their work and new people are exposed to it. It offers the opportunity for a community to come together and strengthen their ties by working together and leaving something beautiful behind as a testament to their work.
ART THERAPY FOR CHILDREN
When kids are struggling it can be really hard to know what to do as they are still too young to process their feelings. Art making is a safe way to provide an outlet for frustration, sadness, or other complicated feelings without having to explain what might be wrong when they themselves don't understand. Kids naturally work these things out through play and art. Through their work, we gain insights into what they are struggling with and how we can better support them. Art therapy with kids helps soothe anxiety and build self-esteem.
