See What They Have To Say...

I was very pleased with the relationship that I developed with my therapist.  She was very helpful to me while seeing her and will use her again if ever needed.

Very nice place! My husband and I went to The Calli Institute this week and I was so impressed with everything!  The staff at the front desk is very polite and informative and our therapist, Amanda is incredible!  The atmosphere is very different than any other counseling place we have been and it makes a huge difference.  We plan to return weekly!
- Shauna
I am amazed at how well the staff and nurse practitioner work to help me get my meds and appointments met at a proper and efficient time!

I have been to a bunch of different therapists, but this place is by far the BEST!  It is so comfortable, it is like being in someone’s home!  The staff is very respectful and my therapist, Nicole, is excellent!  I am so happy I found her!

I have been very happy with my care at Calli and felt very comfortable there.  I haven’t been there in a few months, but plan on scheduling an appointment soon.  Thank you for your exceptional care and great facility.

We would not hesitate to recommend Calli.  My wife and I felt very comfortable from the very first call to Calli Institute.  The environment is warm and our therapist was very kind and professional.

Art Therapy

What is art therapy?


Art therapy is the use of the creative process to improve and enhance physical, mental and emotional well-being. It is based on the belief that the creative process is both healing and self-enhancing. The art product creates a vehicle upon which the artist can identify thoughts and feelings that they otherwise would not express.

Art therapy integrates the fields of human development, visual art and the creative process with models of counseling and psychotherapy. It is used with children, adolescents, adults, groups and families. It is especially useful for children with limited language skills or those who are unwilling or unable to talk about their thoughts and feelings.


Art therapy is used to assess and treat: 

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Other mental and emotional problems and disorders
  • Substance abuse and other addictions
  • Family and relationship issues
  • Abuse and domestic violence

Art therapists recognize nonverbal symbols and metaphors that are documented within the creative process and are difficult to discuss in words. The client-artist directs the interpretation of the artwork.

What are the key benefits of art therapy?

  • Self discovery—art triggers on emotional catharsis
  • Personal fulfillment—which can build confidence and nurture feelings of self worth.
  • Empowerment—people visually express emotions and fears that they cannot express through conventional means which can give them some sense of control over these fears
  • Relaxation and Stress Relief
  • Symptom Relief and Physiological Rehabilitation—it is healing to identify and work through anger, resentment and other emotional stressors
