Miami Art Therapy offers treatment, supervision, counseling, consultation, and instruction in art/expressive therapies, mindfulness-based stress reduction, and individual/group mindfulness trainings.
As Jon Kabat-Zinn (the father of Mindfulness-based stress reduction) has quoted, “There is more right with you than wrong with you as long as you are breathing.” You have tremendous inner treasures which can be tapped through your personal imagery and expression . Artistic talent or experience is unnecessary. You only need to be willing to know yourself with kind attention and acceptance. Dr. Isis will guide you through this process.
Dr. Isis completed her Ph.D. in the expressive therapies with an emphasis on art therapy in 2003 from the Union Institute and University in Cincinnati, Ohio. In 1980, Dr. Isis attained her Masters degree in expressive therapies with an emphasis on art therapy from Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
