Expressive Arts Therapy

At Healing And Recovery Arts, we believe that sometimes talking is not enough.  The use of the arts in therapy is a way to access feelings that may be difficulty to describe.  In addition the arts allow a means of expression that utilizes our whole brains and expressing feelings through art, music or movement can help not only describe our inner worlds but also help us to heal and even transform them.  Catherine Wetzell's masters degree in Expressive Therapy enables her to guide clients in utilizing the arts in conjunction.  Sometimes this can take the place of entire talk therapy sessions, and sometimes it can simply be an adjunct to what is done in session.  Radha Smith is experienced in the use of poetry in therapy and works with clients to creatively use others' words as well as finding their own words to deepen the therapeutic experience.
