Where Can You Find a Trained Art Therapist in Colorado Springs?
Right Here! Dr. Tara is an artist and has been using art therapy with clients for over 25 years, so she decided to make it official and become one of the few trained art therapists in Colorado Springs. She is completing her internship now as a student at Edinboro University and will complete her certification in December 2019.
Why Art Therapy?
The arts offer an alternative way to bring out emotions. Art therapy, such as painting, drawing, collage, and clay accesses a different part of the brain than speech does. These media can unlock trauma, grief and other buried feelings and give the client a way to express those feelings without speech.
Art Therapy focuses on the process of creating art, not the finished product. It is for both children and adults and you don’t need to be able to draw. Dr. Tara is trained to know the right techniques to help you address and resolve your feelings.
