At Creative Arts Therapy Source, art isn’t just an activity; it’s a language that allows you to express your deepest emotions, fears, dreams, and hopes. Your artwork becomes a window that offers a comprehensive view into your pain, experiences, and the hopes you have for the future.

We want therapy to be a joyful, enlightening, and playful exploration where you are free to express yourself in a way that feels right to you. Talk therapy, with the support of art therapy, can help you uncover a new perspective.

We want to help you tell your story

Many factors influence the length of therapy including symptoms, your life situation, values, expectations, and how much work you are willing/able to do. Most clients work with us for 6-12 months. 

Our requirement is that clients attend therapy on a weekly basis as we have found weekly 45-minute sessions to be most effective.
