Better Living Through Art...

Art therapy is not instruction, critique, or interpretation of art. Rather, it is an opportunity to harness the dreamlike state that comes during the creative process as a means of understanding and expression of memories, feelings, and concepts that can be hard to verbalize for the conscious mind.

Sensory modalities such as light, sound, temperature, taste, pressure, and smell are a bit like raw data, which will be processed and analyzed by our seven senses sight, hearing, touch, smell, taste, spatial orientation, and self-perception. This allows us to perceive what’s around us and influences the impression we have of the world. By understanding our perceptions, we can better understand our emotions, our motivations, and ourselves. Thus by processing this information from the unconscious to the conscious with guided art therapy we can move forward with with personal growth.

As a certified Art Therapist, Heather Joy Freels seeks to help participants heal through art, find enrichment in their lives thorough the creative process, and better their communication skills through artistic expression.

What People Are Saying About Art Therapy...

“At the deepest level, the creative process and the healing process arise from a single source. When you are an artist, you are a healer; a wordless trust of the same mystery is the foundation of your work and its integrity.”
Rachel Naomi Remen
Kitchen Table Wisdom
“Imagination is tapping into the subconscious in a form of open play. That is why art or music therapy, which encourages a person to take up brushes and paint or an instrument, and just express themselves, is so powerful.”
Phil 'Philosofree' Cheney
“If an art installation gets a patient out of his room or paintings take a person’s mind off their pain and lower their stress levels, the art isn’t just decorative anymore. It’s part of the entire model of care.”
Dr. Lisa Harris
CEO of Eskenazi Health
“Creating artwork allows your mind to be in a safe place while it contemplates the tougher issues you are dealing with. One can use the tools of brush, paint, pastels, crayons to expose and even for a short time color those issues in a different light.”
George E. Miller
