“you can totally use my new back to school crayolas”, says the therapist

classic art therapy "Sears family portrait" intake application.

As a Family therapist and a professional Art Therapist, some days are more fun than others. Here are a few pieces of my artwork, made while building rapport with kids in session. Above is my classic “if a family portrait was hanging on your wall at home, what would it look like”? Since drawing this, both goldfish have died. lol. Below are clay examples of “where is your happy place”? Mine is of course, camping.

and another first session rapport builder below.. prompted after “you can totally use my new back to school crayolas”, says the therapist to an 8 yr old.
