Therapeutic Activities at Akron ArtWorks


Using Art Materials Therapeutically...

Integrating art materials into psychological therapy and wellness programs can assist with treatment for a broad range of psychological and even medical difficulties, facilitating the expression of emotion and the development of healthy coping strategies.  Here at Akron ArtWorks, all therapeutic activities are organized as therapy or wellness groups for tweens,  teens or adults and are overseen by co-owner, Dr. Karin Coifman, a licensed clinical psychologist. Our groups integrate the use of art materials into interventions to reduce stress and anxiety, to help with challenging life circumstances, and to increase self-esteem and self-confidence. Each group is facilitated by 1-2 highly-trained therapists, well-experienced in the integration of art into psychological therapies.

Individuals who participate in our therapeutic groups, may be able to receive reimbursement from their health insurance company. All inquiries regarding insurance reimbursement must be directed to Dr. Coifman. Please email the studio, to begin this process:
