Story Art Therapy
Telling your life story through writing, artistic play, and photography
“Story art” is the process Dr. Terranova has developed to help clients explore, organize, and create art that conveys personal messages about one’s self, family, and life work. Through the combination of writing, various art techniques, and photography, clients reveal personal experiences that shape and inform who they are. Story art can take many forms. At a glance, it is a way of documenting essential details of the lived experience that often get lost with time. At a deeper level, it is an invitation to the soul of experience, where our deep truths live, wounds can heal, creativity can blossom. Story art offers a unique way of processing grief and loss issues, trauma, and transition issues. It is a means of exploring experiences on a tactile and experiential level.
One does not need to be an artist or have any art experience to experience the benefits of this practice. The goal of this process is to allow our Highest Self, the keeper of our secrets, suffering, dreams, and needs of belonging to emerge in a visual and meaningful way.
If you are interested in learning more about this process or to set up a series of story art sessions, please express your interest during your phone consultation.
