Art Therapy

Does your child struggle with self-esteem? Do they need to develop better problem-solving or communication skills? Does your teen suffer from anxiety and need someone to talk with?

Art therapy can help.

Get Started

What is Art Therapy?

Art therapy is a creative and therapeutic approach that uses art-making as a vehicle for expression and tool to improve cognitive and sensory-motor functions, and to foster self-esteem and self-awareness.


Art therapy can help identify and target underlying mental and behavioral health issues (such as anxiety, depression, attention disorders or emotional trauma).


Our professional art therapists work one-on-one with each child, applying psychological theories to the creative process.


By tapping into the expressive, creative process, art therapy provides a unique avenue for communication and self-reflection.

Why Teletherapy Works

Why Teletherapy?

Using the latest technology, our art therapists can ensure engaging, individualized sessions designed to meet your child/teen’s needs and artistic interests – whether it’s drawing, painting, sculpture and more. Art teletherapy does not require a family to provide any special materials; a full set of art supplies can be shipped to your home.

"If a child is struggling with a mental or behavioral health disorder, working with an art therapist can be an important part of the overall treatment plan. The practice of art-making is inherently calming and entertaining, and when directed by an art therapist, creates an ideal vehicle for a child/teen to express their feelings and start to make sense of them."
