I offer a place for people to gain new insights, explore perspectives and options, resolve problems and enhance skills to better cope with the challenges in their lives.Our work might involve using images, photos and writing as vehicles for self expression, increased awareness and improved communication. It is often hard to find words for our inner feelings, fears and experiences. Art materials-from pencils and magic markers to paint, photos and videos (or even Pastry Therapy™)-can give form to these concepts, lead to greater awareness and self esteem, clarify values and beliefs and create new perspectives and choices. Making art and tapping into the creative process can be a powerful way to express your thoughts and feelings. It can be calming, lead to focus and integrate polarities, as well as assist in expanding options and facilitating decision-making and risk-taking. No previous art experience is needed. The process is usually more important than the end product.
