Our creative impulse is a bridge
to our true selves,
to our healing,
and to our becoming.
Expressive Arts Therapy ... where creativity and therapy meet.
Expressive Arts Therapy is an arts-based approach to therapy that engages and supports the participant(s) through a process of creative expression that supports:
connection to inner resources
expanded experience of well-being in every day living
developing a sense of creative freedom and possibility
finding new ways of relating to, processing, and experiencing challenges and difficulties, such as depression, anxiety, grief and distress
finding new roads of connection with one's inner and outer world
Expressive Arts Therapists offer sessions that integrate creative expression (for example; visual arts, creative writing, drama, creative ritual, music, poetry, or dance/ movement) alongside talk therapy and somatic practice as a catalyst for personal inquiry, discovery, healing and growth.
*There is no previous experience or skill with the arts needed. All are invited.
Art and the process of creating is a way of knowing
To be human is to create. The body (soma) and spirit (psyche) are resources capable of leading us through times of stress, trauma, and challenge and into transformation and growth. The expressive arts, creative impulse, metaphor, embodiment, mindfulness... all are bridges that serve to familiarize us ever more deeply with our inner and outer resources for growth and development, individually and collectively.
You are here...
There are times throughout our lives when we seek clarity, healing, witnessing, depth, reflection. Times when we feel drawn to focus on our well-being and our personal growth.
There are times where we may end up feeling stuck...maybe we find ourselves hurting...or just ready to step into a growing call for change.
Perhaps you are experiencing challenges or difficulties (anxiety, depression, extra stress, grief, loss), and you're desiring new ways to work with the complexities of living. You may feel unsure of exactly what you're looking for, but you know you are looking for something.
Private sessions are a solid container within which individuals can find nourishment through the process and results of creative exploration and therapeutic inquiry.
Here, we step into a different way of being in our lives. We slow down, we listen in new ways, we learn to hold curiosity for what is and for what might be.
We get messy, we slow down, we play, and we explore.
I invite you to reach out and inquire about a free 20 minute consultation!

Don't go back to sleep."
