Portraits of Me Art Therapy

While they don’t always express it with words, stress and anxiety can be a daily reality for many children in today’s society. Art therapy will provide your child with a safe and artistic outlet to identify feelings, express emotions, and build a healthy self-concept. Your child will leave the program with a toolbox of go-to strategies for regulating emotions, “calming down,” dealing with conflict, interacting with others and building resiliency. Following registration, the therapist will contact you to gain further information specific to your child’s needs
