Integrative Concepts

Holistic Healing Through Expressive Arts

“Expressive art therapy integrates all of the arts in a safe, non-judgmental setting to facilitate personal growth and healing. To use the arts expressively means going into our inner realms to discover feelings and to express them through visual art, movement, sound, writing or drama. This process fosters release, self-understanding, insight and awakens creativity and transpersonal states of consciousness.”  Natalie Rogers

 Integrative Therapy, Holistic Care

A Non-Pathologizing Approach

You Are Resilient

Life is hard. We are presented with many challenges and often feel pressure from all sides. 

Do you feel overwhelmed? 

Is your capacity to "juggle it all" stretched thin?

Are you easily triggered lately?

Do you find yourself becoming flooded emotionally?

Resiliency is a learned skill, it will transform your life.

You Are Worth It

Adverse childhood experiences, subsequent traumas and loss can lead to feelings of disillusionment and shame.

Do "negative tapes" play in your mind? 

Do you constantly second guess yourself & feel unsure of your decisions?

Do you feel like you will never trust yourself?

Do you beat yourself up emotionally with your self-talk?

You can change the "tapes" by rewiring your brain.

You Are Enough

Each of us inherently has the ability to become our own healers, the body intuitively knows what we need. When we become attuned to our bodies, emotions, and thinking change happens. 

Does your mind feel "foggy," do you struggle with concentration? 

Do you find yourself on auto-pilot frequently?

Are you easily exhausted and unsure why?

We all need support from time to time, self awareness promotes self-acceptance.

“Creating artwork allows your mind to be in a safe place while it contemplates the tougher issues you are dealing with. One can use the tools of brush, paint, pastels, crayons etc to expose and even for a short time color those issues in a different light.”  George E. Miller

“The arts empower. The arts give a voice to the voiceless. The arts help transform American communities and, as I often say, the result can be a better child, a better town, a better nation and certainly a better world. Let’s champion our arts action heroes, emulate them and make our communities everything we want them to be.”  Robert L. Lynch
