This art therapy group focuses on developing a safe community and space for support for people facing stress or challenges in life. This group is for people interested in learning how to develop inner strength and a sense of well-being and balance in their lives. We will utilize the creative art process to explore these themes in life. No experience with art materials is necessary!

Some themes for the group:

  • coping skills
  • self-care
  • inner strength
  • confidence building
  • stress relief

Sign up for 1 month and after that it is week to week. At any point after the first month you may let the facilitator know you will be leaving the group. We request 2 weeks notice when possible, so you can have time to end with the group participants.

NOTE: We will start as soon as 3 peope register. If you sign up and it takes more than 2 months to get started we will give you the option of a refund.

Facilitator: Yiren Sun LCAT-LP

I am an art therapist with my master’s degree from the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. My clinical experience is with a wide range of people including children with psychiatric illnesses, adults with developmental disabilities and older patients facing challenges in their final stages of life. I have helped clients to deal with their struggles around depression, trauma, psychiatric illness, life transitions, and challenges in loss and grief.

Currently in my art therapy practice, I focus on guiding and supporting young adults as they discover their strengths and overcome obstacles in life. Art Therapy combines the art making process with verbal psychotherapy. No previous experience is necessary. I guide clients through their own, individual art making process, which allows them to freely express themselves in a safe environment. I support clients with clinical insights from a psychodynamic approach, which helps them to integrate their experience in a meaningful way. Through this collaborative process, everyone can gain self awareness and experience success in better managing their emotion, thoughts, and behavior. This can lead to enjoying greater self-acceptance, self-appreciation and improved relationship with others.
