Therapeutic Art

I am a certified therapeutic art facilitator through Art and Creativity for Healing.  Before I was diagnosed with cancer, I ran my own non profit, Dandelion Wishes, Inc.  where I shared this therapeutic method in prisons, juvenile detention centers, rehab centers and globally.  I believe in the power and healing process of art that effects change in how we deal and settle with catastrophic events in our lives.  Whether it is a death, illness, stress, loss, domestic violence, or any other emotional or physical setback.  I have seen first hand the healing energy the art process affords to everyone who participates in this process.

It has been 2.5 years since I last led a therapeutic art workshop and I was recently approached by two individuals who asked me if I would consider running a workshop for a small group.  My answer was of course, “YES”

Now with a cancer diagnosis, I have written new  curriculum to help the metastatic breast cancer community process their new norm of living.  I am looking to  facilitate these workshops through breast cancer support groups.
