So what is art therapy, anyway?

I’m an art therapist who is “home grown” on the local scene, growing up in the Humber Valley and having earned a B.A. with honours in psychology from Grenfell. Loving both art and psychology, I went on to earn a masters in art therapy from the Kutenai Art Therapy Institute in Nelson, B.C. I’m really excited to establish a professional art therapy practice here – the first of its kind on the west coast of Newfoundland. But what is art therapy anyway? Many people aren't quite sure what I mean when I tell them that I'm an art therapist. It's not surprising - although introduced to Canada by Dr. Martin Fischer in 1969, this form of psychotherapy has only recently branched into Atlantic Canada. H
