What is Expressive Arts Therapy?

As an Expressive Arts Therapist, I employ creative modalities to facilitate the journey of healing and personal growth. Grief, trauma, depression, anxiety, personal and relational issues can be difficult to verbally communicate. I believe the body and imagination offer other ways to help express and self-understand. ExAT is an experiential mode of therapy which means one is invited to journey through their inner world and discover other ways of seeing oneself. I work with images, movement, story, music, mindfulness, and free play to support one’s process. Artwork and expressions are not viewed as “successful” or “failure” in this therapeutic approach. Rather, the activation of images and the body is seen as ways to dissolve limitations and judgments. Shaping and reshaping imagery can lead to surprising discoveries where insight and growth are possible. I work with you to gather forms and ideas from which the interplay of the Arts help to reveal ways one can understand and integrate ailments of body, heart, mind and soul.
