“Art therapy presents a tangible body of evidence that shows the progression you’re making,” says Molly Kometiani, president of the Buckeye Art Therapy Association, the Ohio chapter of the American Art Therapy Association. “You don’t have that body of evidence in other types of therapy. You can see how far you’ve grown.” Hook has dealt with a lot of clients who already tried counseling and didn’t find it effective, but ended up having more luck with art therapy. “There are a lot of things that are hard for us to find the words for,” she says. “(The clients) just don’t have the words to explain what they’re feeling. Sometimes, it’s easier to work through it in a symbolic way.” Also featured are Maryann Sender and Michaele Barsnack.
