Why Expressive Arts Coaching?

Expressive Arts 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.

The Creative Play Way Expressive Arts CoachingIn 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 and more!
