Art Therapy is something Tammy is very passionate about! Communicating through art when words are not enough is a very powerful form of therapy. Art therapy can assist with anxiety, depression, ASD, ADHD, OCD, trauma and all of their associated issues and repercussions.
Tammy’s Art Studio offer art therapy classes for children, which are private classes that are specifically designed for the individual or family. She works with the client and allows them to explore emotions and feelings through art play, creating, and mindfulness.
During the first art therapy session with children, Tammy will often very gently explore some basic mediums with no reference to their current situation and emotions, allowing the client to feel comfortable in her studio. This allows establishment of a relationship with the child, and the building of a platform of trust. Often the reason for attending surfaces during this session. Tammy can then recommend a short-term plan to establish trust and build confidence and rapport while exploring areas of stress, anxiety and/or trauma.
At Tammy’s Art Studio, Tammy is passionate about what she does. She believes that every child is an artist and that encouraging creativity is one of the most important investments that can be made for the next generation.
