"Art opens the closets, airs out the cellars and attics. It brings healing." Julia Cameron

In Basics of Arts Therapies, students will learn the nuts and bolts of this dynamic and transformative approach to healing. Expressive arts therapies are used in hospitals, schools, universities, clinics, and corporations.
“ Expressive arts therapy may incorporate writing, drama, dance, movement, painting, and/or music. People utilizing expressive arts therapy are encouraged by a qualified therapist to explore their responses, reactions, and insights through pictures, sounds, explorations, and encounters with art processes.”

Eve Brownstone, LCPC has provided compassionate care for the creative soul for thirty years. Eve supports and empowers her clients to look within to gain more: self-awareness, self-love, and self-acceptance. Art therapy, dance/movement therapy, guided imagery, meditation, journaling, and role-play are some of the tools used for this journey. The arts are great outlets to cope with stress as well as strong therapeutic tools that get below the surface to the heart of the matter. Not everyone’s first language is verbal. The arts help us speak. Eve trained with top expressive arts therapists at Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and in Chicago at the Psychodrama Institute of Chicago and provides Eve believes the key to healing is through compassion, connection, and contribution and everyone who comes to therapy is looking for tools to either heal, get unstuck, or find their authentic voice.
