KidSense employs experienced and licensed Mental Health Counselors

Mental Health Counseling is the therapeutic use of art-making within a professional relationship. Mental Health Counseling is based on the belief that the creative process involved in the art-making is healing and life-enhancing. What are the benefits? Mental Health Counseling uses the art-making process and the resulting art product as an alternative means of communication. The therapist and the client work together to understand this primarily non-verbal communication. Through creating art and reflecting on the art products and processes, clients are able to increase awareness of their behavior and the behavior of others, develop problem-solving strategies, cope with symptoms, stress and traumatic experiences, and enhance cognitive abilities.
