Trauma-focused art therapy is a powerful therapeutic approach that combines art-making with counseling techniques. It provides a safe and creative outlet for children and audlts to express and process their thoughts, emotions, and experiences related to trauma. Through various artistic mediums, such as drawing, painting, and sculpting, individuals are encouraged to explore their inner world, externalize their emotions, and gain insights into their healing journey. The dedicated team of licensed therapists and counselors at Life Enrichment Counseling Center are here to guide you on a journey of healing, growth, and self-discovery.

Our Approach

At Life Enrichment Counseling Center, we understand the unique challenges that trauma survivors face. Our trauma-focused art therapy sessions are conducted by experienced therapists who specialize in trauma-informed approaches. They foster a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental environment where you can explore your trauma at your own pace.

Our therapists utilize evidence-based methods, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and the Instinctual Trauma Response™ (ITR) method. Through gentle guidance and empowerment, we aim to help you process and integrate your traumatic experiences and develop healthy coping strategies.
