More Info About My Practice
In art therapy, you do not need previous art experience or artistic skills. Through creating images which reflect your issues and strength by drawing, painting or clay work, you can visualize and clarify your problems and struggles. You can see the area of conflict objectively and together we can come up with creative solutions for your troubles and work toward what you want in your life. The creating process itself is relaxing, joyful and therapeutic. Art therapy is especially effective as a drug-free treatment for depression, anger, and other situations that require individuals to learn how to deal with their emotions and process them in a healthy manner. Studio Mene provides a safe environment for you and/or your family to explore your feelings and creative abilities to produce life-changing results.

I also accompanied my clients' parents at the after ASD diagnosis conference. As an art therapist, I developed various ways to help them visually.
