Creating Inner Balance with Art Therapy

Melissa L Kelly, LCPC is an Artist and Art Therapist in Rockport, ME. Melissa will explain how the process of creating art in Art Therapy sessions can be used as a metaphor to gain perspective and deeper understanding for our own emotions and behavior patterns. During this event Melissa will guide participants in creating Mobiles to reflect on how to find balance in our (sometimes hectic) lives. No artistic skills are necessary; just come with a willingness to open up, explore and have fun.
