Our creativity services include a transpersonal approach to healing with your senses. Through writing, movement or soaking in music-we provide a safe space for individuals to express themselves and promote self-growth and healing.

If interacting in creative expression sessions are not comfortable, binaural or bilateral beats for whatever need are available at our online store. To aid in allowing centering in this form to occur.

Visual Arts Services

Visual Narratives

Create a comic or storybook inspired by your real lived experiences with fictional characters and environments. Clients may choose to focus on a current issue that they are seeking closure to, or a previous event that they would like to re-create or re-imagine. The project does not have to be all about trauma! This is a fun and flexible way to explore personal archetypes, symbols, themes, inspirations, transformation, and outcome possibilities.

Making Feelings Felt

Ever wanted to make your own soft comfort object? Using wool and a felting needle, clients will create their own 3-dimensional flora, fauna, or person that represents peace in their life. Needle felting is very cathartic for folks experiencing anger or struggling with aggression, as the needle is required to pierce the felt repeatedly to take form. Poseable armatures are optional, enabling your pieces to bend and hold positions! This process requires repeated fine motor motions and is not recommended for folks with carpel tunnel or arthritis.

Collaging with Intention

A one-session option for folks wanting to dip their toes into creating without the pressure of drawing. Clients are given structured steps to approach working with various materials to create a visual representation of their hopes, dreams, struggles and strengths. Intentions are discussed beforehand, and various examples and approaches to collage are introduced. At the end of the session, the image created will be discussed and any lingering thoughts will be addressed.

Crystal Creations (Wire Wrapping 101)

Perfect for clients who wish to adorn or wear their favorite crystals! Learn the basics of wire wrapping and make your own personalized piece of meaningful jewelry. Or use your new knowledge to highlight and uplift a significant natural element on your personal altar.

Analyzing Your Art

For those who have a creative practice and want to process their work with an empathetic and experienced fellow creative with a background in mental health. A facilitator with over a decade of experience in art making and teaching will help you examine your work with a holistic and creative lens. Technical and compositional critiques are optional, while discussion and introspection are required. This is a perfect option for folks exploring their own personal narrative, trauma, and systemic oppression through art. Participants will share intentions and goals in the development of their work, their creative process, and their choice of medium. Effectiveness of communication and representation in the work will be a primary focal point, with room for client-led objectives!
