FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What does a typical therapy session look like? My office/studio offers a safe and confidential place for clients to share their thoughts, feelings, and needs using both art therapy and traditional talk therapy. I structure art therapy sessions to include three components: 1) feelings check-in 2) expressive art activity and 3) verbal processing. Sessions typically are 50-90 minutes long.
What age clients do you see for art therapy? school-aged children, teens, and adults.
What if I’m not artistic? Is art therapy all you do? I offer both traditional talk therapy and a variety of expressive therapy techniques such as art, sand tray, journaling, creative writing, and play therapy. I tailor the therapy experience to each individual I encounter. For example, some of my clients create art in every session while others prefer doing verbal therapy alone. Some choose to bring in their own artwork or project ideas while others prefer me to lead art projects that address their specific treatment goals. I encourage all my clients to honor what they need and share this with me in therapy.
