Getting to know the feelings & letting go

People with Chronic pain so often feel that they have lost control - Control of their bodies - Their choices & the fabric of their lives. 

Art therapy allows for purposeful control & re-connection of their bodies.


The underlying emotional wounds that feed this chronic madness are able to be soothed & transformed. 

Art Therapy provides students with a space for Self-Expression, Exploration & Connection while bringing healing to your Body, Mind, Emotions & Soul through Expressive & Creative ways in a safe, non-judgemental space.

                 I, myself, have had trauma that, as the years went by, turned into a chronic pain.

We all have trauma & traumatic events that happen to us every day & it is the process or lack of process that can cause that energy to seed itself into an area of our body, later morphing into pain, then a chronic condition.


    When I look at my own situation, my trauma started at a very young age (as do so many others) 

Learning to be quiet & having no safe place my body formed a pattern. A unhealthy pattern by the way, of non-expression. As I got older and more and more big and small traumatic events entered my life, more & more heaviness settled into my shoulders, neck, and upper back.

        At 35, I had a swimming pool accident that could have killed me, or made me a quadriplegic. The event was never looked at or dealt with. I didn't realize that it needed to be looked at.. That I needed to be seen.... Needed to be heard...... Needed to understand......
