History on Sana's Expressive Arts and Art Therapy
Here is a great article posted on the Souris Chamber of Commerce Facebook Page this week on Sana's Expressive Arts and Art Therapy!Sana Expressive Arts & Art Therapy | Facebook
Here is some history about local business Sana Expressive Therapy and Art Therapy
Sana Expressive Arts and Art Therapy was started in February of 2020 by art therapist & expressive arts consultant educator Barb Murphy. Located at 4 Crescent Ave East, The building in which Sana Expressive Arts and Art Therapy is located was originally built and used as a bank by (Col) AL Young & (Barbey) FV Young, Private Bankers. It then became an insurance office for various proprietors including Hugh Wilson, Patersons, and Martins. Since then it has been used as a private residence, and various businesses such as Ruth's Art Shop, an office for the Plaindealer newspaper, photoshop, Lagasse Art Studio, clothing store, and Viva La Lemon yoga studio. The most notable and unique part of the building is that the basement, now an apartment, housed the original Souris jail. Sana Expressive Arts and Art Therapy offers therapy services to individuals, couples, families, and groups from diverse backgrounds and of all ages. Art therapy and expressive arts are psychotherapies that can help people struggling with various mental health difficulties such as anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, anger management, loss, and more. And no, you don't have to be an artist to benefit from art therapy sessions! Barb provides therapy services at her Souris location but also travels to other communities within Manitoba and is excited about being able to offer mental health services to the Westman area. Stay tuned for upcoming group sessions focusing on topics such as anxiety, interpersonal skills, and personal exploration & growth! If you are wanting more information about what services are provided, or to contact her to book an appointment, be sure to check out her Facebook page, email her at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (204) 483-0770.
