EXPRESSIVE ARTS and THERAPY

Unleash your creativity & express your authentic self!
In Expressive Arts sessions, we use music, art, drama, dance and/or poetry to express ourselves and foster wellbeing. We explore our innate creativity as a source of deep wisdom, playfulness, healing and self-discovery. Open-ended art forms inspire imagination and a positive sense of self. Activities are self-directed and process-oriented rather than product-oriented, so there is no “right way,” and no experience is required.

Sessions can often be profoundly joyous and transformative at the same time.

Through Expressive Arts, I can help you or your child to:
– free creativity & awaken imagination
– release stress & process emotions
– explore healthy play & authentic self-expression
– experience the wonder of the world through the senses
– increase self-esteem & build resilience
– communicate non-verbally
– connect with deep inner wisdom

We can also:
– enrich educational curriculum
– work on empathy & social skills
– develop a vision for your life & inspire your dreams
