THERAPIST SPOTLIGHT: Sarah Gallop, LMFT, ATR
Show Me Your Story
Art-making connects the eye and the heart, and can add meaning to our every day lives.
Sometimes images can speak louder than words. If you're looking for treatment and you identify as a visual person, Art Therapy can help you uncover deep-seated feelings and thoughts that you can't express verbally, and can also help you understand yourself in a more holistic way, so that you can become your most authentic, best self.
I enjoy using art-making in sessions with all clients —kids, teens, and adults-- who are struggling with a wide range of emotional and life challenges. Art works particularly well in processing trauma and adverse life experiences in areas of the brain that are resistant to verbal expression. The extraordinary beauty of this modality is that once the trauma is discovered and explored, it can be released so that healing can begin.
My clients are often surprised and emotional at the insights they uncover about themselves through the creative act of visual expression. Those insights then plant the seeds for personal growth and long lasting change in their lives and relationships.
