Art Therapy Clinic

The GW Art Therapy Clinic

The George Washington University Art Therapy Clinic is a training facility partnered with the George Washington University Graduate Art Therapy Program providing confidential, quality art therapy services to children, teens and adults from the community. Our clinicians are students in their second and third year of the Master’s program and are supervised by licensed, professional art therapists and mental health counselors.

Clients who are seen in the clinic receive art therapy services at a negotiable fee based on a sliding scale, starting as low as $5 per session. Most clients are followed in 1:1 individual therapy sessions with one therapist throughout the academic year. The clinic also offers Group and Family Art Therapy as needed, usually in the spring semester. Because we are a training facility, all sessions are digitally recorded so that students can review and receive supervision on their work.  

The mission of the George Washington University Art Therapy Clinic is threefold: 1. to provide members of the community a unique opportunity to experience art therapy sessions at a reduced fee; 2. to provide training and supervision for students in the GW Art Therapy program in the application of art therapy for treatment of trauma and mental health concerns; 3. to promote and engage in faculty and student led research on the application of art therapy in clinical practice.
