"If words are not enough to access the core of who you are and how you might address your issues and struggles, consider Art Therapy as a treatment modality. "Art therapy engages the mind, body, and spirit in ways that are distinct from verbal articulation alone. Kinesthetic, sensory, perceptual, and symbolic opportunities invite alternative modes of receptive and expressive communication, which can circumvent the limitations of language. Visual and symbolic expression gives voice to experience and empowers individual, communal, and societal transformation." -American Art Therapy Association



About Robert
Do you have a child adversely impacted by the ongoing war at home? Does your child shut down when you try to get them to talk about the toll the abuse is taking on them?  Are you at a loss sometimes for words to fully express what your are experiencing?  I would like to offer you the opportunity to approach your issues and struggles using not only words, but also by symbolizing your own experience through graphic means. Together we will identify and address the barriers you face in realizing your goals and aspirations.
