“I truly believe in the power of art for self-expression and healing both mentally and physically. It can help express feelings that words can not capture. You can expect to make art, try new art materials, and use art as a way to express yourself and process your thoughts and feelings. As well, building a strong therapeutic relationship is key to healing, growing, and reaching your goals.”
