Art Heals, PLLC
Bethany Sweeden, MA, LPC-AT, ATR-BC
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Art Therapist (LPC-AT) in the state of Texas, an Art Therapist Registered-Board Certified (ATR-BC) through the Art Therapy Credentials Board, and a Certified Anger Reslution Therapist (CART) from the Center for Anger Resolution, Inc.
In addition to using traditional therapies, I utilize art therapy as an alternative form of communication - a way to talk without talking. No experience in art is necessary, only the willingness to express yourself. My psychotherapy work is informed by neuroscience and incorporates nutrition, expressive and complementary therapies for mental health and wellness.Together we will work to meet your needs, establish goals and explore creative solutions.
What is Art Therapy? It is the therapeutic use of art materials, images and the creative process. Using art in counseling stimulates the brain in areas inaccessible by verbal stimulation alone. Your counseling experience may involve paint, clay, mindfulness practice, guided imagery or just creative thinking, but the intention is to connect you to your own creative solutions while addressing your specific needs and goals.
I specialize in working with tweens, teens and young adults, addressing issues such as self esteem, empowerment, identity development, depression, anxiety, negative thoughts, stress, relationships, emotional management, coping skills, communication, drug/alcohol use, body image, unhealthy eating habits, lifestyle changes, transitions, trauma, violence and abuse.
