What is art therapy?

Art therapy is a tool to assist individuals who struggle with finding the right words to express how they feel or what they are going through. The great thing about art therapy is that anybody can participate, no artistic skill is required for this therapeutic journey. Art therapy is more about the visual expression and the story that forms when using various art mediums with guidance from Cassie during the process. With the use of art therapy, clients gain insight quickly, practice ways to let go of perfectionism and increase confidence for self-expression.
