Are you sometimes lost in your worries, thoughts and negative self-talk? If so, this may be the group for you! Come relax, make art and discover. This group offers a mindfulness based approach to art making, utilizing creativity as a conduit to increased mindfulness in other areas of life. This is a safe place to explore art for self-care, without judgement or any artistic experience. The group will also provide coping sikills training for day to day stressors.

Our goal is to offer our art therapy studio as a supportive place to nurture your creativity and use artmaking for personal discovery. Build a community of people who want to take time for themselves. You may opt to use your health insurance to pay for the group if you have any of the following plans:

"Many people are curious about art therapy. And so many of them tell us that they want time to be creative; to just be themselves. We started this group for them."
