Soul Play: Painting From Your Soul Virtual Workshop



Feel the luscious delight of color moving across the paper,

Exhale and watch your shoulders drop,

Feel the energy in your body and notice where the brush wants to go,

Marvel that something deep inside of you knows exactly what to do,

Feel fully present and embodied in this moment,

When was the last time you felt this way?

It is time for you to return home to yourself…

Let’s Paint.

*Release the inner critic voices that keep you stuck and small and embrace your compassionate creativity.

*Unblock stuck feelings and thought patterns and realign with your true self.

*Feel alive and awakened as you learn to trust your inner guidance.

*Reconnect with your playful sparkly creative magic!

How does the process work?

~ We will start with setting your intention

~ Then mediation will guide you to go deeper

~ Unwinding will allow for bodily movement and expression

~ Commence the painting!

~ Inquiry will deepen the understanding of how the painting process is often a refection of our own stuff

~ Final Reflection and closing

Art making is indeed therapeutic, however Soul Play is not intended to be a therapy substitute. It’s an open ended creative source deep dive that may stir up your stuff.

***First Workshop for therapists, frontline workers, and teachers is free!***

Group Therapist

Get out of your head and into your life!

Have you been spinning in your head, feeling emotionally swamped, stuck in old patterns you thought you outgrew?

I can't help.

I’m real, authentic, and so are you. In therapy I will compassionately hold the space for transformation and I'll lovingly call you out on your hot messes, so you can see what keeps tripping you up.

Grab a cup of tea, scrunchies and PJ's are welcome here, just show up. Judgement is not my thing, helping you see the behavior and thought patterns that aren't serving you, is.

My superpower is my ability to connect and dive deep, creating a container of safety for releasing stuckness. As the Creativity Queen I have creative, intuitive somatic therapeutic tools galore to help get you out of your head; I’m happy to share. I’m deeply soulful, playful and openhearted. I hold the space for you to be so too.

The "deets"- Been helping heal with creative emotional expression over 35 years. I do deep cathartic expressive therapy and work best if you've been in therapy before, but felt you didn't fully get to the deeper stuff. Over intellectualizers, brainy peeps, other therapists, empaths, and healers resonate with art therapy. As one client shared, “Art allows me to get into my heart instead of my head. When I am in my heart I can feel, and when I feel I am able to heal”.

I am a Registered- Board Certified Art Therapist practicing in-person in Sarasota, FL; and a NY Licensed Creative Art Therapist and NY Licensed Mental Health Counselor.

I offer online therapy for both FL and NY.
