Individual Art Therapy
Individual Art Therapy sessions are approximately 50 minutes in duration and are typically held at my office in Portland. Together we will explore your questions and/or concerns, come up with reachable therapeutic goals, and work as a team to achieve these goals. I utilize both verbal and non-verbal techniques in my practice. These techniques are individualized based your needs and preferences. I believe that it is my role to act as a guide and facilitator to assist you in reaching your own answers that are authentic to you as an individual.
Group Art Therapy/Community-Based Therapeutic Art Making Groups
I offer group and community-based sessions in Southern and Midcoast Maine. These groups can be individualized based on location, specific needs, and the population being served. Groups are typically 60 to 90 minutes in length and can be held at my office, in a community center, or at any location that has access to a private or semi-private meeting place. Based on need and size, co-led groups are offered as well with Registered Art Therapist Amy Welch, LCPC. Co-leading offers several benefits which include the ability to model healthy adult interactions, increased one-on-one time with group members, and additional support during the group process. Some examples of groups I have facilitated on my own or with a co-leader include: eating disorder/body image group with girls ages 13-17 at an inpatient psychiatric center, community-based social skills group with children under 10 years old, and Art Therapy psychoeducational groups for mental health practitioners. Groups can cover topics such as trauma, loss, domestic violence issues, anxiety, and depression.
