Changing lives through, therapy, play & nature

Therapeutic Photography techniques are photographic practices, where the intended goal is to produce positive change in individuals, couples, or families.

It is a process of discovering both the internal and external world.

Therapeutic photography involves taking, analyzing and using photos for the purpose of personal healing, growth, or understanding, whether done consciously or unconsciously.

By actively constructing, exploring and reflecting on photographs, you are able to learn more about yourself and how you see the world.
