Wednesdays 3-4pm

Small and Tall Artists group is designed for children ages 2-5 years and their caregivers to engage in creativity together. Sessions are semi-structured and include an opening and welcome, time for socialization, art-making and a good-bye. We work on a different art project each week to build a stronger connection between caregiver and child, the group, and our community. Co-making and creativity can support enhanced attunement, secure attachment, emotional expression, and communication. Seasonal and event-based art projects relate and connect the daily environment shared by the child-caregiver pair. As they build greater attunement, the opportunity to support emotional awareness, regulation, and development can be enriched beyond group sessions. Snacks and beverages are welcome as your child needs. No art skills are needed, and art materials are included in registration costs. Registration includes 6 weekly sessions. The group is facilitatied by a Licensed Professional Counselor/Art Therapist, Peta Minerof, LPC, ATR.

 

Current Session: 2/1/23 - 3/8/23 (No session 3/1)

Ages: 2-5 years accompanied by caregiver

Cost: $240

Peta is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Registered Art Therapist (ATR). She is a textile artist and holds a Masters of Art Therapy and Counseling [MAATC] from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. 

Her training includes experience with a variety of clients where she provides both individual and group counseling and Art Therapy.   Peta is trained in multiple therapeutic modalities including Contextual DBT,  RO-DBT, CBT, ACT,  and EFFT where she works from a Trauma-Sensitive view. Peta has worked with clients at the inpatient, Residential PHP and IOP level of care with extensive experience in Eating Disorders, Mood Disorders and Substance Use. Her clinical interests include working with adolescents and emerging adult clients through the creative process, substance use, eating disorders, trauma and perinatal mental health. 

In her practice, Peta interweaves the principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy(CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and ACT  with Art Therapy. Peta’s practice is based on a relational foundation, offering her clients the opportunity to identify and work through emotional barriers within the connection between client and therapist.  Using a wide variety of art media, clients are able to explore deeply held emotions, process complex experiences, clarify goals and express themselves in a way that words cannot capture. Peta believes that we feel and function at our best when we are free to be our authentic selves and able to practice self-expression without judgment or limitation.  It is when we are comfortable with our authentic self that we can engage with the world, enjoy relationships and fully thrive.
