Art therapy is a form of expressive therapy that uses master’s level art therapists and the creative process of art making to encourage growth, healing and connections to self and others. Art therapy can help individuals cope with symptoms and stress and has been shown to enhance cognitive abilities and stimulate neurological pathways. No artistic talent or knowledge is necessary to benefit from art therapy.
