About group therapy at Community Arts
Art therapy groups can help you explore hard to process emotions such as sadness, anger, fear, or shame. Sharing our stories through creative expression gives us a safe and healing place to resource ourselves and welcome in the radical gift of self love.
Our art therapy groups are billed monthly, which means you can sign up for 4 group sessions and decide monthly whether or not you want to continue. The sessions are affordable and a great way to meet like-minded people who are going through similar life lessons.

Art Therapy process group for young adults (18+)
Wednesdays 3:15pm - 4:15pm / Led by Wanda / virtual / OPEN
Navigating young adulthood is complex. It’s one of the most social times in our life, we have a deep need for intimacy, and our exploration of our sexuality expands. As we shift away from the adult - child dynamics in our family systems, we are creating new boundaries and becoming autonomous in our adult selves. There can be stress in finding affordable places to live, choosing a career path, and managing the new task of paying bills. Our bodies are growing and changing, and we are avidly exploring our identities. Some of us are breaking away from dysfunctional family systems and are beginning to heal from intense trauma from our childhoods.
