Art Therapy Services
Art Psychotherapy is a form of therapy that addresses the same problems that are addressed in Individual Therapy, Couple’s Therapy, and Family Therapy, by providing mental health counseling and therapy through Artmaking and the Creative Process.
At The Bindu Institute, our Board-Certified Art Therapist is experienced in facilitating psychotherapy and mental health counseling through Artmaking and the Creative Process. Artwork created by YOU becomes a tangible means of discovering information about yourself that may have previously been unclear or even repressed. In your Art Therapy sessions, you and your Art Therapist “Collaborate and Witness” your own artwork as you work through it.
Art Therapy allows us, through our own creative process, to SEE what we may not yet SEE in ourselves….and can help alleviate symptoms associated with: Intrusive Thoughts; Hyper-vigilance; Nightmares; Flashbacks; Aggression or Lack of Assertiveness; Emotional Numbness; Feelings of Guilt; Stress Related Disorders.
Art Psychotherapy may be applied to anyone suffering from Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) from Childhood abuse; Active-Duty Combat related PTSD; Veterans with Combat related PTSD; Female Active Duty/Veterans Sexual Trauma related PTSD; and Military Family Adjustment issues. In addition, small art therapy groups (of 4-6 members with similar issues) are available at certain times.
Art Therapy is not just for kids! & No Artistic Skills Necessary! We do not judge!
