HEY SHAUNA ART THERAPY
Learning to Express and Understand Ourselves Better
To Create More Balance in Our Lives
ENLISTING CREATIVITY & CURIOSITY TO HELP US MAKE THE CHANGES THAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR.
ART THERAPY IS A COLLABORATION OF ART-MAKING, COUNSELLING, AND PSYCHOTHERAPY. Creating an opportunity to express and understand ourselves better, and to enlist our creativity in imagining a more satisfying, balanced, and engaged life.
CREATIVITY BEGINS BEFORE WE HAVE ART MATERIALS IN OUR HANDS. It begins with personal and collective agency, with the decision(s) that we make to seek community, support, and space. It feels important to describe and recognize creativity as more than an art-related process, but also a way that we can live, imagine, understand, and create change in our lives.
ART THERAPY is grounded in the belief that creative process, self-expression, and supported reflection can help us to have a clearer understanding of where we’re at right now …what we need… and to be able to imagine and make the changes that we’re looking for. Using creativity and expression to find balance, manage stress, depression, anxiety, mental health issues and the myriad of other un-eases that trip us up in our daily lives.
NO EXPERIENCE WITH ART OR ART MATERIALS IS NEEDED.

The arts help us to maintain a balance between what science shows us (and that can often make us painfully aware of our flawed nature and chaotic environments) and what sustains us in our “survival of life’s journey” …art being something that “soothes us, supports us, and inspires us along the way”.
