Connect with a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist in Buffalo or Western New York
We are a professional network of art therapists working to educate the public as well as advocate for and increase access to art therapy services in the Buffalo Niagara areas of Western NY. Our site is an educational one, that features profiles of many state-licensed and/or nationally registered therapists working in a variety of public, private, and community-based settings in the local area.
Often, our emotions and personal experiences can be too complex or difficult to put into words. Utilizing the creative arts in psychotherapy promotes a healing that can be lacking in traditional “talk therapy” approaches.
You do not have to be an artist to benefit from art therapy; it is an individualized process that involves the exploration of many forms of creative expression within a therapeutic partnership.
Art therapy can help you discover new ways to express yourself, be a positive outlet for growth, and find a path to recovery from past trauma. More and more are finding it to be indispensable in successfully and sustainably making the positive changes they're looking for.
