Working Together

Stephanie Gray is a writer, artist, process arts facilitator and creative self – discoverist.

Her main focus is working with people as they make their way through life transitions by providing suggestions on how to stay connected to self during shifting times. Stephanie combines art making, creative writing, active listening, heart-based questioning and over 20 years of her own self-discovery practice to assist individuals in living a more authentic life, cultivating awareness of their sacred selves.

Stephanie is co-founder of Creative Nectar Studio and co-facilitator for the online program The Walkabout.


Stephanie is not a medical professional, counselor, or therapist, and none of her suggestions should be taken in the place of professional care. Stephanie’s guidance is meant to be woven in with any ongoing counseling, therapy or medical treatment plan. Individuals must use their own discretion, judgment and common sense at all times. If you have a medical condition or health concern, always consult your doctor.

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. 


Private Sessions

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 making, creative writing and active listening.

I also offer private sessions with active listening and heart - based questions without the art.

The hourly rate for a private sessions is $30 per hour. I also offer discounted rates for scheduling multiple sessions at once:

 4-Week Plan 

 2 one hour studio sessions and 2 emails ($80)

 4 one hour studio sessions  ($100)

 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 The Walkabout, we'd love to have you join us!

The Walkabout is a 12 or 6 month online immersion of creative self-discovery. We invite you to join us as we commit to being real, vulnerable and open using creativity to meet our lives as they naturally unfold. It’s an online adventure of creative self-discovery with no plan or playbook, just some art supplies and the willingness to show up - just as we are. Created by Sarah Oblinger, it is a sacred journey you take from your home into the most ordinary parts of life by unwinding down to your core to the wisdom that is innately yours, because it is you.  Discover More Here
