Art therapy allows a person to express - in colors, shapes and designs - those emotions that are too unclear to express in words. It provides the opportunity to connect to one’s feelings through creativity without having to formulate those feelings through logic and reason.

Art therapy provides the opportunity to go back to the times when life was a blank page and it didn’t matter what you colored on it. Every picture is an opportunity to relax into the art allowing the emotions of the moment to emerge. The art can be looked upon afterwards or put away in a safe place. It will later come out as a witness to a journey, of release, of expression, some of pain and others of joy.

The art is a tool. It is the creation that both therapist and client can look at without judgment, attempting to see it as it is, without the mask that covers so much of our true emotions. Through the art, each client can connect to their feelings, allowing themselves to create without worrying about the final product. It is freeing and allows every person at any age to experience their emotions through a different filter.

Hachamama Shel Elizabeth, a unique Therapy Center nestled within a garden nursery,
offers children and adults a variety of professional therapies and creative activities.

Clients work in the bright and spacious art room or outside by the trickling waters of the fishpond. A garden is also available for those who choose to grow their own flowers and vegetables. The combination of art and gardening provide added opportunities to choose the creative work that you will do within your therapy program.

  • Elizabeth, a licensed art and garden therapist, worked for many years with children in the school system as well as children at risk. Her dream was to open an Art and Garden Therapy Center, offering children (and adults) the opportunity to face challenges in a warm, natural and creative environment. Her dream is now a reality, helping to make a difference in the lives of her clients, and their families as well as the community as a whole.
