Mental Health Services

Art Therapy is a mental health profession in which clients work with an art therapist.  Clients use art media, the creative process, and their artwork to explore their feelings, reconcile emotional conflicts, foster self-awareness, manage behavior and addictions, create and maintain healthy relationships, develop social skills, reduce anxiety, and increase self-esteem.

Bloom as an organization honors and understands difference in the people that we work with, and our therapists practice from an anti-oppressive and ant-racist standpoint. Bloom is an inclusive and LGBTQ allied health organization that works with clients and the community.

Art Therapists are credentialed professionals...

trained in both art and therapy.  They are knowledgeable about human development, psychological theories, clinical practice, spiritual, multicultural and artistic traditions, and the healing potential of art .  Registration (ATR) is granted upon completion of graduate education and post-graduate supervised experience.   Some states regulate the practice of art therapy and in many states art therapists can become licensed as counselors or mental health therapists.
