Mission Statement

The Art Therapy Institute (ATI) is an organization of mental health professionals dedicated to the healing power of the arts. We provide clinical art therapy services to diverse populations, empowering clients to develop their identities through the art-making process. We also offer training to allied professionals and seek to raise awareness in the general community about our profession and the benefits of arts-based therapy. 

We affirm a commitment to inclusivity; we embrace all people and honor each individual’s race; ethnicity; religious or spiritual beliefs; national origin; ancestry; age; abilities; sexual orientation; gender; gender identity; gender expression; socioeconomic, marital, immigration, or military status; political views; and new cultural identities as they emerge.
