Create, Grow, Heal

Each person is unique and brings their individual experiences, strengths and challenges to the therapy process.

Our approach is customized to accommodate each unique individual we serve through art, dance/movement, drama and music therapies.

Institute for Therapy through the Arts provides creative solutions to life’s challenges whether they be emotional, physical or neurological. People of all ages can benefit from our therapies including those with developmental challenges, Autism, mental illness, emotional distress, neurological disorders and histories of trauma.

Creative Arts Therapy engages multiple senses and activates many areas of the brain making the therapy experience one that uses both body and mind and works to heal or strengthen the WHOLE person.

Our innovative approaches are used to inspire change and growth and to help people achieve a life of health and happiness.
