Creativity to Reduce Stress & Heal

At one time or another we all have experienced the creative and personally enriching potential of art.  As a child, you probably found enjoyment in making drawings, coloring, cutting and pasting, finger paining, building sand castles, working with clay or even popsicle sticks.  Today, as an adult you may feel you have lost your creativity or you may feel you could never be consider "artistic".   However, you can still get therapeutic benefits from incorporating some art in your daily life.

Many times over the years I found my way back to my artistic side in various ways.  I was always drawing and painting as a child.  I also enjoyed music and dance.  As a young mother I started sewing and doing crafts with my children.  I worked with flowers and worked in the interior design field for several years.  Creativity had always brought me peace and a sense of control, accomplishment and success that I needed.  However, it wasn't until the last five years that I rediscovered the joy of drawing and painting.

My interested in art was restored after learning about the benefits of art therapy and starting to work with Mandalas.  It was amazing how finding a way to put inspirational work part into my life brought me so much peace and reduced my daily stress.

Today in my work with my clients I often help them discover or rediscover their creativity and help them facilitate change through art therapy. I help them access the creative process for personal growth and self-exploration.  I teach them how to use creative activities as a means of communicating issues, emotions, and conflict.   I also teach classes on the incredible healing power of working with Mandalas, workshops for rediscovering your creativity, phototherapy, collage work, adventures in art and healing traumas through art therapy.  I have found making art as a therapeutic tool for addressing mental and physical health issues.
