Are you feeling stuck, down or overwhelmed with concerns or problems that you can’t seem to shake? Perhaps you just don’t feel good about yourself– a tape recorder in your head keeps telling you that you’re not as good as other people or that you “fake” your achievements. Perhaps you’ve lost someone and you just have a big hole in your heart. Maybe you fall into a deep funk about the state of the environment (called eco-anxiety or climate grief) and feel hopeless or grief-stricken. Maybe you have experienced trauma in your life and feel that you can’t quite release its grip.
You may be new to the idea of therapy, or you may have a long history of seeing therapists and want to try something different, something that would be in addition to the verbal psychotherapy that you’re used to.
Many people have come to me saying that they’ve been in therapy before, some say they are tired of talking about the same old things….but still want to move forward toward resolving what’s going on for them. And they’ve decided, ‘why not give art therapy a try?’
People who have experienced trauma deal with shame, painful memories, and often feel misunderstood and alone. Starting to address those feelings with an understanding therapist can be a first step towards healing and becoming whole, rather than cutting off those difficult emotions.
