Art Therapy Groups & Services for LGBTQIA2S+ Teens

Our new art therapy groups and individual services provide a helpful and inclusive space where young people can explore their identities, reflect on experiences and build helpful life and coping skills through creative expression.

Individual services and multiple groups are available in person or virtually for teens ages 12-18. No artistic experience or skill is required.

Through individual and group therapy, young people will:

  • Build coping, communication and other skills
  • Explore thoughts, feelings and self-expression
  • Learn tools to support mental health and wellness

The Village is committed to diversity and inclusion for all. These groups are a safe and affirming space for LGBTQIA2S+ identifying young people. Services are provided by Village Clinician & Art Therapist Mandy Lupfer, LPC, ATR, NCC.
