Expressive Arts Therapy:

Free Sessions

Balancing Act has partnered with WHEAT Institute for Expressive Arts Training Therapy to offer one-on-one sessions with practicum students. Expressive arts therapy combines psychology and the creative process to promote emotional growth and healing. This multi-arts, or intermodal, approach to psychotherapy and counseling uses our inborn desire to create, a therapeutic tool that can help initiate change.

To sign up or learn more reach out to us by email.  Indigenous therapists available.
