Virtual Art Therapy Clinic

All art therapy sessions are facilitated online and are available by donation. Using a camera on your computer, tablet, or phone, our art therapy graduate students will guide you through your own individual healing process.
While our therapists practice all over the world, our virtual clinic schedule runs on Vancouver, BC, Canada/Pacific Time. Please check World Time Buddy to convert the schedule to your time zone.
