Celine Elise Redfield Art Therapist and Psychotherapist

Check out this interview from All Business Media Nationwide: Celine Elise Redfield LMFT, ATR – Art Therapy, Portland, OR

Recorded on 6.4.2018, I talk about addiction, why I became an art therapist and how art therapy works.

A few quotes from the interview:

“Art therapy allows a person to externalize their unconscious.”

” Unconscious processes come up when your are doing art therapy because you can not edit yourself like you can when you are speaking.”

“We can not change if we do not know what is going on with us. We are taught not to examine what is truly within, and that external things will fix us, but that is not really true.”

“It is important to admit to yourself that you have a problem and it is going to be impossible for you to deal with whatever addiction problem that you have if you continue to be in denial.”

“You have to be willing to face yourself. Because really it starts with you. You can’t get sober for anyone but yourself. And you believe that you deserve to be sober.”

” You need to have some kind of support network to get and stay sober. Whatever way that you choose wether it be 12 step or not 12 step. But you need something..”

“What really drives addiction is isolation and lies.”

“Many people become addicted because they have unresolved trauma.”
