Miami Art Therapy

Miami Art Therapy offers treatment, supervision, counseling, consultation, and instruction in Art/Expressive Therapies, Mindful Self-Compassion, and individual/group Mindfulness trainings.

As Jon Kabat-Zinn (the father of Mindfulness-based stress reduction) has said, “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.
