About Art Therapy Studio Chicago
A typical counseling session involves you identifying an
area you would like to work on and together we discuss
some ways you can approach the situation. We may ask
you to create something to help you reflect on yourself
and your situation, or through the process of creating
you may find relief and understanding of your
experience. We do not interpret or pathologize based on
the art work that is created. We allow you to find your
understanding of yourself by asking you questions in
response to the work to help you know yourself deeply.
