Silverdale therapeutic arts center expands services

AHA! Studio for Integrated Therapies LLC in Silverdale is a therapeutic arts and counseling center, where growth is encouraged and the gifts of each individual are celebrated.

Since 2009, AHA! Studio has offered “out-of-the-box” creative arts therapy programs to BuxMont children, teens, families and individuals.
This fall, the studio is adding art therapy, music therapy, and sensory integration occupational therapy, as well as reflexology and yoga for anxiety, to its portfolio of services.

AHA! Studio is a resource for children and families facing social difficulties, behavioral issues, medical traumas, parental concerns, communication and sensory integration challenges. Using evidence-informed creative holistic approaches for children and families, the therapies offered at AHA! Studio help children overcome anxiety, depression, trauma and social differences.

AHA! Studio founder Karen DeHaven created the LOTUS (Learning Optimal Techniques to Understand Social Skills) Clubs to offer children with social anxiety, communication challenges, ADHD, high functioning Autism, or those who are simply extremely shy, a safe, supportive and enjoyable practice space for core social skills development. The clubs are the cornerstone of a research-based embodied Emotional Intelligence (eEQ) curriculum.

Enrollment for the Creativity (ages 6 to 10) and Discovery (ages 10 to 13) LOTUS Clubs is now open. Complementary intake events will take place on Oct. 2 and 3 at 5:30 p.m. at the studio.
