Leave your troubles on the wall
Sara Hopkins has never been much of a traditional person. She went to college to study Norwegian and economics, she has owned a dairy farm and now works as a licensed clinical social worker. She has a new approach to helping people heal: art.
“I’m not an artist. First off, I want to say that,” Hopkins said. “I used art in my counseling or therapy practice. The way I got into it is I have a tendency to think more in picture than I do in words. Feelings and emotions can come to me in a more visual format. As I was working on some things for myself, I would start drawing pictures instead of journaling.”
“I found that, as I was drawing pictures, I found that the pictures would lead to words and help me explore things more for myself,” Hopkins continued. “At the time, I was working with a lot of kids, who of course have problems expressing emotion and words. Traditional conversation doesn’t work as well with kids, so I was looking for other ways to try and help them with that.”
