One of the best ways to overcome trauma and facilitate healing is to express ourselves through creative mediums. It is with that goal in mind that the Art Station was founded in 2004, letting children, teens, and adults from age 6 to 80-plus engage in art therapy sessions under the guidance of mental health professionals.
The staff addresses conditions from depression, low self-esteem, and anxiety to behavior problems, trauma, grief, chronic illness, and more.
The Art Station is a haven where the staff understands that sometimes it’s hard to find the right words to properly express what we feel. By adopting a visual language through which clients may express themselves, therapists are able to serve individuals through a variety of services depending on each person’s needs.
There are even age- and gender-based art therapy groups to facilitate healing in a communal environment, where clients form quality relationships with one another.
