Cultivating transformation & connection through creative expression.

At Thrive Creative Arts Therapy, we lead our clients on transformative journeys towards healthier boundaries, reduced fear and shame, and better relationships. Our clinicians are highly trained in talk and trauma-focused therapy, yet our focus on using art as a tool for emotional growth is what sets us apart from traditional practices.

By placing artistic mediums at the heart of healing, we help you achieve new levels of personal insight. Our therapists integrate creative practices such as visual art, drama, and energy work into your sessions to guide you toward a greater sense of confidence and self-awareness.

What is Art Therapy?

Traditional talk therapy helps us deal with psychological symptoms, but often it doesn't reach the roots of our struggles. Art therapy, on the other hand, blends common forms of counseling with creative expression to unlock deeper levels of self-awareness.

Creativity unlocks emotional insights, tapping into the memory-rich right side of your brain. With the guidance of our skilled art therapists, you'll use mediums like painting, drawing, journaling, reiki, and theater to explore your internal challenges and foster personal growth. You'll also have a tangible record of your progress, showing how far you’ve come on your healing journey.


Our clinicians have a diverse range of specialties in the art therapy space. We take great care to pair you (or your loved one) with the appropriate clinician based on your situation as well as your creative interests.

We provide art therapy sessions with the following specializations:

Talk Therapy

Talk therapy provides a safe space for individuals to openly express their thoughts, emotions, and challenges with a trained therapist. Through guided conversations, clients gain insights, coping strategies for personal growth. At Thrive Creative Arts, we often combine talk therapy with art therapy to facilitate a more holistic path to healing.

Drama Therapy

Drama therapy invites you to step into different roles and stories, helping you explore emotions and experiences from new perspectives. Through improvisation and creative play, individuals can gain insights, build confidence, and process their thoughts and feelings.


Reiki is a gentle and healing energy practice that aims to promote relaxation, balance, and well-being, offered in person and virtually. By channeling positive energy into the body, Reiki can help reduce stress, support emotional healing, and enhance overall physical and mental wellness.

Art Therapy

Art therapy lets you use creativity to dig into emotions and experiences that you might otherwise struggle to express. Through hands-on activities, you can explore your feelings and see things from new angles. We gift all our new clients with a Thrive Art Kit, which has supplies like collage materials, washi tapes, watercolor paint, and stickers.


Trauma-focused sessions are with a specialized EMDR, EFT, or IFS-trained therapist. EMDR, or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, is a therapy technique that helps individuals process and heal from traumatic memories by using bilateral stimulation. EFT, or Emotional Freedom Technique, involves tapping on specific points to alleviate emotional distress and restore balance. IFS, or Internal Family Systems therapy, helps individuals understand and harmonize different aspects of themselves to promote emotional healing and self-awareness.
