Art It Out Therapy Center: Creative Approaches to Therapy, Social Skills, and Coping Strategies

At Art It Out Therapy Center our mission is to provide the highest quality of therapy services to our clients in an environment of creativity, compassion, and respect. We are a private therapy practice servicing Atlanta, Buckhead, Marietta, Smyrna, Sandy Springs, & Cobb County. We are conveniently located on the border of Atlanta and Marietta near East Cobb. We provide social skills groups, support groups, social skills enrichment, therapy for children and teens, individual therapy for adults, and family therapy. We help children, teens, adults, and families with a variety of struggles, including: ADHD, anxiety, social skill struggles, friendship issues, depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, grief and loss, divorce, difficulty coping with a medical diagnosis, and low self-esteem. 

At Art It Out Therapy Center, it is our goal to help all families be happy families! We believe that by addressing social and coping skills issues and interpersonal challenges early, techniques and strategies can be learned and mastered in a safe environment which will allow your family to thrive.

Our therapists are creative, energetic, and engaging.  During therapy sessions and social skills groups, participants engage in art activities and therapeutic games which allow them to integrate and practice coping skills, strategies, and techniques that they can use in other areas of their lives.  The activities also help Art It Out clients to express feelings, implement new skills, and put into practice the skills they work on in therapy.  We believe it is important that those who attend social skills groups or therapy sessions not only learn, but have fun as they acquire their new skills!
