ALOFT will work with you to design a therapeutic plan that uses available and affordable materials suited to you & your therapeutic goals.
  • Do I have to be good at art to try art therapy?
    No art experience or 'talent' is necessary in art psychotherapy. Just a willingness to explore and create with different materials. Art therapy is about illustrating thoughts and feelings, not learning how to be a good artist.
