P.A.L.S. for Healing (Paper. Art Therapy. Letting Go. Self Actualization) nonprofit organization seeks to empower individuals and families who have suffered trauma or loss to not only regain their lives but achieve their highest human potential. We provide cutting edge trauma-informed therapies for individuals and families including art therapy, EMDR, and SITCAP. We also provide education and training for professionals and community helpers empowering them to advocate and help those who have suffered trauma and/or loss achieve optimal health. We provide individual and group therapy at our four locations and at community partner locations. 


Our Vision:
Individuals and families who have suffered trauma and/or loss are empowered to not only regain their lives but achieve their highest human potential.


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.
