Lotus Studio: An Expressive Arts Therapy Group for Adults

Expressive arts therapy uses the age-old healing powers of creativity to build self-awareness, connection, and energetic release. This monthly group studio is led by certified expressive arts therapist Nicki Allen, MS, LPC, RPT, NCC (she/her). Here, you will build a personal creative practice with the support of other group members. Although artists or other creative types may find this group helpful, all are welcome, and no artistic experience is required. Our focus will be on the healing powers of *process* and *non-judgmental awareness*, creating a space where you can get messy and express freely. This group is not a substitute for individual therapy, but Nicki is available to support you in creating a plan with ways to receive support and therapeutic resources outside of group.

Please show up ready to get messy! Nicki will provide materials, but you are invited to bring a personal journal or personal art materials. Group meets monthly on Thursdays from 6:00-8:00pm CDT, in the Lotus Counseling office in Flower Mound. Cost is $30, which includes materials cost. This group is limited to 10 participants per session. We are always accepting new group members. To sign up for group, contact Nicki at nallen@lotusflowermound.com or 940-268-3717.
