Online Art Groups
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all of our groups are temporarily on pause. Our clinicians are working hard to meet the increased demand for individual therapy services and are happy to discuss how to best meet your therapy needs during this time. We hope to be able to offer group therapy in the near future!

No Art Experience Required!
The Art Therapy Group welcomes all and offers a unique opportunity to come together in a non-judgmental supportive atmosphere to play, experience and create together. Our clinicians understand the enjoyment as well as challenges that come with the creation process. We also know the power that can come from being able to put images to experiences that words cannot fully capture. We understand the way paint, clay or colored pencils can be both intimidating and liberating and honor whatever comfort level you bring to the process. The art group is one of expression in the way you feel most comfortable and participants are encouraged to ask questions, move at their own pace and choose with whom they would like to interact. The art support group offers a place to explore in ways that may not have been possible or accessible in the past. The group offers an avenue to open up a new way of viewing your life and yourself.
This group welcomes adults 18 and older. For more information on our offerings for Art Therapy for children please click here. We are currently not meeting in-person for art groups due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
