Ayelet Perlson

Expressive Arts Therapist

ABOUT

My passion for art and helping others center themselves in the ebb & flow of life’s journey, has led me to art therapy. I am a certified art therapist with experience working both privately and in groups with children, adolescents, young adults and adults. I have worked in psychiatric settings, as well as clients dealing with depression, anxiety, emotional regulation, life transitions.

Why art therapy? Expression through the use of materials enables an understanding of emotions and the self, expanding beyond the ability of words. The use of language has a limited scope which stems from a conscious, intentional place. Creating with a variety of materials allows a certain flow from our psyche, unlocking subconscious images which appear, in order to tell us a story. The creative process and images can break through the conscious barrier of speech and enable a deeper journey of transformation and recovery.

My therapeutic approach focuses on the creative process and its healing effects, as it occurs within the safety of the therapeutic relationship and space. I believe the base to all therapy is first and foremost to develop a trusting relationship between patient and therapist. Together we explore your relation and use of different materials as a reflection of your relationship to the world. The created image then allows further reflection and insight, leading to a transformative place of growth.

I am fascinated each time anew with the healing that occurs throughout this creative dynamic. I look forward to sharing your creative journey together.
