Thanks to her, our clients are feeling more empowered and have a sense of hope as they overcome their life hurdles. House of Hope staff has heard it time and again from our clients that they wouldn't know where they'd be without her—that they love her, that she's so helpful. Many of our clients, even after they've left our program, are begging to come back to see her again. She is clearly a very talented therapist, but one too who is empathetic and can engage and connect with people regardless of their situation or socioeconomic status.

Thank you Denver Counseling Group!

Art Therapy

Denver Counseling Group's art therapy program integrates the fields of human development, visual arts (drawing, painting, and other art forms) and the creative process with psychodynamic foundations for optimal mental and emotional growth. This medium of therapy is based on the belief that the creative process involved in artistic self-expression helps people resolve conflicts and problems, develop interpersonal skills, manage behavior, reduce stress, increase self-esteem and self-awareness, and achieve insight.

Art therapy is used for people of all ages to treat difficulties such as anxiety, depression, anger, stress, PTSD, trauma, loss, and other emotional/behavioral difficulties. No prior art experience is necessary to benefit from art therapy. All supplies combined with a confidential space and a Master's level educated therapist is provided.

Research shows the affects trauma and difficult life experiences has on the brain. These experiences change the brain's ability to access higher functioning, including verbal recall and expression of past events. Thus, verbal therapy may not be for everyone. Accessing different parts of the brain to work through emotional/behavioral difficulties is accomplished through right brain capabilities, and this is where art making and other creative capacities come from.

This is especially true for young children who lack the verbal capacities of adults to relay experiences. A child's inherent language is through play and creativity, and using their medium of communication has proven beneficial therapeutically. As adults, it is not easy to talk about one's feelings. Art therapy can be a way to work through and share experiences without saying them out loud.

Denver Counseling Group recognizes everyone is different and has unique needs. This is why we offer a variety of therapies, and we will work diligently to find what works best for you.
