well-being, self-discovery, finding clarity, exploring life purpose and
reaching goals. It's a magical and fun way to process what you want and
need. You DO NOT need to be an artist to benefit from expressive arts.

Why Expressive Arts Coaching?
coaching is a magical mix of self-discovery with a dash of
creativity. The goal is deep self-awareness that reflects our
true and authentic self.
college, I studied theatre, English
and art. After I graduated I worked as a recreational director with
elders living in long-term care communities. It was my twenty-one years
working as a recreation therapist and consultant that I learned the
value and healing power of expressive arts. I would watch the
magic of creativity unfold. Women riddled with health issues would
allow themselves to sing, paint, dance and create. As they
participated in expressive arts their pain and problems were lessened.
Expressing our creativity the power to help us tune in and heal our
mind, body and Spirit. In my late 30's, I had my own health
challenge. It was an art journal that helped me piece back togeher
my own mind, body and Spirit. The journal was nothing fancy and consisted of stick figures that told
my story. But the process of working with color, lines and a few
words helped me discover what I needed to know to move forward and
re-establish my life. Expressive arts is a creative tool that helps us gain clarity, insights, self-awareness, self-discovery, personal growth
