child-centered art therapy
When your child has experienced trauma, or anxiety from a known or unknown source, it can be hard to know what to do or where to turn. Sometimes, talking to a therapist can be intimidating, and young children might not have the words to describe their experience. Child-centered art therapy helps your child communicate their internal experience so that both you and your child can start to understand what's going on and start on the road to healing. A child who might benefit from art therapy might be a kid who loves art, who is resistant to therapy, and is struggling in life. Often children in upper levels of elementary school and middle school prefer this type of therapy, as play therapy sounds too "baby-like" for them.

Individual child art therapy starts with a complimentary 20 minute consult to decide if we are the right fit. Our first session may need to have parents present in the room, in which case, your therapist will lead a family art therapy session. Subsequent sessions are ideally held without parents in the therapy room, however some children are scared to leave their parents at first. We do adjust accordingly in those cases. Content and length of treatment depends entirely on your child's unique situation, and we work to collaborate with you and your child to find the right level of care.
