Do art therapists interpret my artwork?
Contrary to some perceptions of art therapy, an art therapist will rarely interpret your art-work. Although a part of you might want to have someone give you all the answers, at the end of the day, it just isn’t useful. The main goal of any therapy is for you to get in touch with your own voice, your own expression, and your own language. Art is a powerful tool that can help you to do so. My role is to help you better understand your creations, offer you different perspectives, and witness your process. I find that the personal meanings that you can bring to your own work are far more insightful and relevant than any external ones.
