Answering a Real-World Need for Creative Healing

At Thrive Creative Arts, we use the transformative power of creativity to ignite growth and inspire healing. By weaving various modes of artistic expression such as visual art, drama, and energy work with traditional talk therapy, we are able to lead clients to insights and breakthroughs that are difficult to reach through words alone.

Our founder, Stephanie Kemmer, started Thrive Creative Arts Therapy to foster the kind of therapeutic, creative expression that opens the door to self-discovery and healing. After a career spanning many different clinical settings – including psychiatric centers, schools, and private practices – Stephanie was ready to take a leap and create something of her own. So in August of 2021, she followed her heart, and we officially opened our doors.

Since then, we've developed a remarkable team of therapists and counselors who fully embrace the process-based nature of the arts. Our clinicians work closely with you and (if needed) your family, providing guidance and support to help you uncover your true self and mindfully create your best life. If you're ready to live a life with healthier boundaries, less fear and shame, and stronger relationships, we're here to help you thrive.

Our Approach

A Client-Centered Process

A core aspect of art therapy is valuing the process. Engaging in creative activity taps into the emotional and memory-rich right side of your brain – opening up unexplored parts of your psyche for growth and healing. In order to give you the support necessary for this deeply personal work, we take a flexible, client-centered approach. This means offering in-person and virtual sessions, as well as a variety of collective services like group therapy, workshops, and community-led initiatives. We also take great care to pair you with the appropriate clinician based on your (or your dependent’s) individual situation.
