    Art Therapy Workshop

    Drawing and painting are tools of wellbeing. For years I have watched my students face challenges in their art, which empower them to accept challenges in their life with playful creativity. I invite you to do the same. Enhance your therapeutic process through meditation, conversation, creating and sharing art.

    Lifestyle and Dietary Consultation

    Nutritional, supplemental and lifestyle consultations offered from a Chinese Medicine perspective. Seasonal plans, menus, resources and recipes provided in concert with psychotherapy.
