What is Art Therapy?

Art therapy is a type of therapy where you use art to feel better emotionally and mentally. By making art, you can understand your feelings and experiences better. It's helpful for people who find it hard to talk about their feelings or want new ways to deal with stress or tough times.


Our Approach to Art Therapy

At Volusia Medical Center, we see art therapy as a powerful way to heal. Our licensed art therapists create a safe space where you can express yourself freely through art. We understand that everyone is different, so we customize our approach to fit your needs, likes, and goals. Whether you're dealing with anxiety, depression, trauma, or just want to be creative, we're here to help you discover and heal.
