My soul is fed by facilitating and working alongside others. Having been deeply informed by loss as well as living with chronic pain for the last several years, I am no stranger to the hard and messy parts of life. I am grateful for these messy parts as they have gifted me with great compassion and sturdiness that now live inside me, allowing me to remain steady with you during your hard and messy times.
I will encourage you to feel instead of think and from this place; we’ll tap into your inner wisdom that knows exactly what serves you best. Alchemy occurs as we play with color, scribble and write in old discarded books or art journals that in time become a sacred and unique blueprint, leading you back home to your authentic self.
I have come to believe that there is beauty in our darkness and that our light still shines right there in our "brokenness". There is nothing to fix or pretty up. Maybe there's nothing to do except learn to love ourselves just as we are. Light, dark, sullen or elated....let’s bask in it all, and meet what arrives at our door with as much mindfulness, grace and power as we can.
I offer private sessions (online via Zoom or in-person in my studio if you are near the Kansas City area) for anyone who has a desire to know themselves deeply through the magic of process art. If you are new to the process arts world and we haven't worked together, our first appointment will be to get to know each other, discover more about the process and see if working together feels right. This initial consult is free.
The hourly rate for a private sessions is $30 per hour. I also offer discounted rates for scheduling multiple sessions at once:
2 one hour studio sessions and 2 emails ($80)
4 one hour studio sessions ($100)
Disclaimer: This way of creatively meeting yourself is something that cannot be truly experienced in one session. It is a gentle and sacred unfolding that reveals your truest self... in time.
Please contact me with questions (I would LOVE to hear from you) or to set up an appointment.
Online Creative Explorations:I love the idea of working with people wherever they are! Now I am able to offer on-line options with my mentor and friend Sarah Oblinger. Check out what's available, we'd love to have you join us:
Rise and Shine Silent Sundays
Born from a deep need for sanctuary and a heart- based community, Rise and Shine was designed to help cultivate the practice of listening to our own voice using creativity as a tool for self discovery - as well as providing solace for the world -weary.
This weekly offering is for anyone who feels short on time or money with a desire to create in a non-facilitated, silent community. It’s the perfect opportunity to show up just as you are – bed head and all – and create from the inside out. No experience necessary!
