Express Yourself with Art Therapy from Flourish Psychology

There are many ways to treat mental health. Our role as therapists is to find the approach that would work best for you. One option that we strongly believe in is known as “art therapy,” which is a form of therapy that is directed around personal expression and interpretation that helps many patients address and overcome a variety of issues, including eating disorders, anxiety, and more.

At Flourish Psychology, we have therapists that specialize specifically in art therapy. These individuals are trained to combine evidence based therapeutic practices with art, which includes painting, dancing, sketching, sculpture, and other outlets that are used creatively for expressing emotions, guiding thought processes, evaluating worries, and recovery.

Our art therapists offer an effective way to treat a variety of mental health conditions and are available to help support your mental health.

What is Art Therapy?

Art therapy, as its name implies, is an approach to psychotherapy that integrates artistic expression into the mental health treatment program.

Why would this help?

One of the challenges that many patients have when they struggle with mental health challenges is the ability to describe or find the words to explain how they feel and what they experienced.

They may know they’re struggling, but they’re having difficulty finding the words or processing it in a way that makes it possible for them to truly express what they’re dealing with.

Art helps. Art gives a non-verbal outlet that you and your therapist can use to better understand what you’re feeling. It can help people who struggle with trauma-related disorders, like PTSD, process that trauma.

It can help those with eating disorders gain better understanding of themselves and what is contributing to their body image issues. It can also help people process anxiety, depression, sexuality, and more.

Art therapy also doesn’t limit itself to creating the art. You and your art therapist also discuss it, evaluate it, and try to identify where and why you expressed yourself in these ways. It can also be combined with other treatment modalities that support and enhance your mental health and wellbeing.

Who is Art Therapy For?

Our team of Brooklyn art therapists will determine if we believe art therapy is right for you. It can be a useful form of expression for many different conditions, but it depends on your struggles and what it is that would benefit from your expression. As psychotherapists, we do not push you to any therapy unless we believe that it will benefit you. Art therapy can be used to help with:


Stress Management


Anger Management

You do not have to be a talented artist or have any art experience at all to benefit from this approach to therapy. All that matters is that you are willing to commit yourself to the process and work with your therapist to find ways to use art therapy to reach your goals.
