My workshops are custom-built to utilize the creative process of art-making to educate and empower. Whether you're in the market for creative team-building activities for your employees, or are looking for someone to encourage a greater sense of cooperation and cohesion among your group members, I am available to conduct experiential art therapy workshops on a wide range of topics at your next event or conference.
Additionally, all activity themes can be tailored to meet the specific needs of your company, organization, agency, group, institution or place of worship. Some of my past presentation topics include: an introduction to art therapy, art therapy for the non-art therapist, art and spirituality, grief and loss and stress reduction and mindfulness.
