We offer a variety of different groups ranging from groups for children with anxiety or ADHD, to children who need practice becoming more assertive and confident, as well as, groups for children with Asperger’s and other diagnoses. Our groups use creative expression, art, play, and interactive games to enrich your child’s life.


We teach skills; provide an opportunity to practice the skills while receiving individualized coaching and valuable feedback; and use art to create tangible reminders of the skills so that they generalize into your child’s everyday life. We use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Positive Psychology, and creative, fun art activities to teach skills.  Our goal is to emphasize your child’s strengths and to provide your child with the skills and confidence to make and keep meaningful peer relationships. 

Our groups are very individualized. At Art It Out, we pride ourselves on group fit. We build our groups based on group goals as well as the individual needs of our group members. Groups are led by a Lead Therapist (with a Master's degree in Counseling or Social Work) and a graduate intern. This ratio allows opportunities for individualized support within the group. If your child is having a tough time, we want to prioritize giving them an opportunity to check in on a one-on-one basis.  

Group members learn that art can be a holding space for big emotions. In group, we are learning social-emotional skills that help our clients in daily situations. We begin by learning more tangible coping strategies via art or activities. Once our clients are feeling more confident with the daily implementation of these strategies, we transition to more internal skills. Growing from using glitter jars as an outlet for negative emotions to positively talking yourself through those emotions!  Don’t worry, you don’t have to be a talented artist in order to benefit from our groups! We also incorporate STEM activities, games, movement, sensory play, role-playing, etc.
