Find Art Therapy Therapists & Counselors in Smyrna, GA.

 

Art therapy is a type of therapy that utilizes artistic processes in the process to improve mental well-being. Art therapy creates the space for you to express your feelings and thoughts through ways other than words and talking.

Some of the most common techniques that mental professionals employ in art therapy include:

  • Painting
  • Drawing
  • Clay sculpture
  • Coloring
  • Collage
  • Photography

For someone who struggles to express their emotions and experiences through words alone, art therapy enables them to express themselves through visual representations. Art therapy is often paired with other types of therapy to better get to the root of and heal from mental health concerns such as anxiety, depression, stress, and eating disorders.

Whether you are located in downtown Smyrna, the suburbs of Smyrna, other nearby places such as Marietta, Atlanta, or anywhere else in Georgia, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.
