Finding a Voice:
Often there are no words adequate enough to express reactions to traumatic events. Drawing and making art is a natural form of expression that engages the right side of the brain, therefore, art therapy provides an opportunity to express yourself from an emotionally safe distance through images and pictures.
Creating a safe place:
We start with establishing a safe environment for healing since trauma survivors rarely feel safe in the world. We utilize trauma-informed therapies like EMDR and art therapy. They engage both sides of the brain to assist in healing from an emotionally safe distance, reducing the risk of further trauma.
