Expressive Arts Therapy is a process-driven intermodal therapeutic platform that integrates the different psychological disciplines and talk therapy with creative arts. Expressive Arts Therapy incorporates components of art therapy, music therapy, drama therapy, and dance movement therapy within the context of psychotherapy, counseling, and/or rehabilitation.

The arts provide opportunities to develop language and communication, behavior modification, cognition, fine and gross motor skills, social and life skills, self-esteem, and self-expression. Expressive Arts Therapy can be used in individual sessions for mild to moderate psychological challenges. Group sessions in schools, healthcare centers, care homes, corporate offices, not-for-profit organizations, and much more.
