I love to help people express their truth and beauty.
Do you remember how to be playful?
Early in my career, in my training as a creative arts counselor and psychotherapist, I discovered the healing power of imagination. I bring this experience to my workshops, which involve unique, playful and surprising ways to evoke storytelling.
Are you awake to your innate creativity?
I grew up thinking I wasn't creative and wishing I was. It was only when I took risks to get out of my comfort zone that I opened the door to a creative (and much happier) life. Not only do I use this as a guiding principle in my teaching, but I strive to keep creating, as well.
Like lots of writers, I began by keeping a journal.
Diary writing is a self-expressive practice for telling our stories, making meaning, and engaging in an artistic process that sparks empathy and insight.
Now, my photo inspired writing Blog #NewThisDay is my photo/prose writing journal. I hope you'll read it to peek further into my process, and develop your own.
