Healing art sessions online

I offer therapeutic art counseling session in real time, online. During these challenging times besides confusion, anger, frustration, many find themselves confronted by loneliness. How do we spend time with ourselves? Maybe we want company but we cannot stand our own. How do we accept and embrace ourselves just as we are, or haw do we face negative thinking and self-criticism? Creating art, or engaging in making marks of paper, it’s a relaxing activity in itself, and it’s natural. In the process of painting or scribbling our mind its focus on the action. It is as if you are giving yourself permission to take a mental “vacation” from our usual thoughts. The ART you create it’s surfacing from the deepest part of you.  I can help you process the images, understand their language, and find more positive ways to face tomorrow. I charge a minimal fee of $35.00 for 1.5 hours session, since I am taking in consideration the fact that most have financial concerns. Contact me for a free 20 min. conversation and then you can decide if you want to give art therapy a try.

Do you have a ruff day today?


We are creatures of habit. Small changes can upset us until we accept them. Big changes, such as changing your daily routine, at a fairly rapid speed, can bring in anger, confusion and frustration. Add to add confinement and health problems, the result can bring one in an extremely stressful emotional space.
I started offering Therapeutic art online because I am seeing it clear, from talking to friends and from many posts on Facebook, haw you are straggling. Many time people joke and make light of how their use of drugs and alcohol increases, or plain outright they say “Today I have a ruff time”.
Therapeutic art is not a cure, or an easy fix, but it is a way to look inside your heart and open it to a gentler, more accepting attitude. Help you relax. It can help find a healthier pass to growth and healing.
If you want to give Therapeutic art a try, send me an E mail and we can connect for a free 20 min. consultation.

Why Art Therapy OnLine in real time?

In the last months our life have changed completely. We are faced with new every day challenges. What we took for granted, the ability to walk around town, meet with friends, give and receive a hug are the very things we crave. Even the things we may be complained about, the crowds, long lines at the supermarket, crowded restaurants, are experiences we miss.  Being on contact with many on Facebook I could not help but notice that the hared moments get harder, the solitude only brings many addictions to re surface and be triggered, people straggling with depression are only sinking deeper especially when facing this times alone.
In the last 12 years I advertised little my services as art therapist. Most of my clients were referrals and repeat clients. Now I decided it is time to offer you the option of my art therapy services on line.
This are real time face to face sessions and you and I can interact. This is not a self guided course, or videos and directions you receive weekly. This is personal! 
How Can Art Therapy Help?
