Creative Art Therapy


ART THERAPY has COME to our GOSHEN office... 
and now our RIDGEWOOD office, too!

 

 

Art therapy is the application of the visual arts and the creative process within a therapeutic relationship, to support, maintain, and improve the psychosocial, physical, cognitive and spiritual health of individuals of all ages. It is based on current and emerging research that art making is a health-enhancing practice that positively impacts the quality of life. Art therapists are credentialed professionals who purposively use specific art-based approaches with children, adults, groups and families to support, maintain, and improve overall health, physical, emotional and cognitive functioning, interpersonal skills, personal development, and quality of life. - See more at: http://www.cathymalchiodi.com/about/what-is-art-therapy/#sthash.Wz8fwetX.dpuf
 
  • Art therapy is the application of the visual arts and the creative process within the therapeutic relationship.  The purpose is to support, maintain, or to improve upon the psychosocial, physical, cognitive, and spiritual health of people of all ages:  Childhood through Adulthood.
     
  • Art therapists are credentialed professionals with training in creative arts, therapy, and human development.  They use specific art-based approaches with children, adolescents, adults, groups, and families.  Their role isthe same as any other therapist's role...                                                        

 
                        - to help children, adolescents, adults, families and groups develop improved functioning, interpersonal skills, emotion regulation skills, personal development, and improved quality of life.
 
 
 
  • Art therapy is an interpersonal experience where a therapist facilitates, guides, witnesses, and responds to an individual's art process and art expressions.  
     
  • In art therapy as in CBT, DBT, or short-term therapy...  there is a helping professional and an individual, family or group seeking assistance from a therapist to make changes.  The relationship between the therapist, individual, and the art process and art products is essential to art therapy, and includes purposeful dialogue and specific therapeutic interventions in response to the therapeutic process.


Current and emerging research in mind-body medicine and integrated healthcare strongly suggests that art therapy is an effective, health-enhancing intervention and form of treatment... and that it positively impacts quality of life.

Tiffany conducts individual & group therapy sessions in BOTH our Ridgewood & Goshen offices. 

She works with children, adolescents, adults, groups, & families. 

Oftentimes we find that working with both a Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT) therapist & an Art Therapist

can be extremely helpful in

working through underlying sensitive issues such as

trauma, identity, self-esteem/self-worth, & sources of depression & anxiety.
