Schools, mental health agencies, and churches are places where the arts can help provide healing and a sense of community. In schools the expressive arts help children learn self-regulation for a more productive school day. At an agency there are many applications for art with clients and self-care for therapists. Lastly, churches have the unique opportunity of adding studio arts to their worship and fellowship gatherings. Art therapy can help many of the people you already serve at your location. Therapeutic art brings a new creative light to any upcoming event!
Linda Ziert, MA, ATR Registered Art Therapist
As a practicing art therapist over the past several years I have come to understand the importance of art therapy for tension relief and self-expression however, of even greater importance is the use of the creative arts as a forum for people to soulfully actualize a deeper and more fruitful way of living with desire, hope, and purpose.
“Linda was a wonderful counselor who gave us a thought and then let our imaginations run with it. She is a blessing to all her students.”
“Linda Ziert has an amazing ability to help connect our hearts and souls to the art therapy process. ”
“Linda facilitates an environment that invites calm & acceptance…She has a smile that welcomes.”
“I left each session feeling relaxed, both because I created something I cared about, but I also had the opportunity to connect with others.”
