  • full body fatigue
  • nervous lack of appetite
  • work panic
  • loneliness

These symptoms can be exacerbated by recent life changes (both positive and negative) that may have taken a toll on your emotional stores. The holidays are known as a time of great excitement but for many it can also be a time of great stress and anxiety. Whether these stressors are triggered by family, financial burden, work, or past memories art therapy offers an outlet and a release from all of that.

Hundreds of studies have proven that art making can reduce stress and anxiety, increase positive emotions, and reduce the likelihood of depression.  Beacause of this art therapy is uniquely effective in combatting Holiday Syndrome and the symptoms listed above.

If you have found yourself feeling any of the symptoms above, schedule your free consultation and begin down the path towards relief from the stress and anxiety of the holidays.
