Trainings & Staff Retreats

Facilitated therapeutic art making supports self-care, communication, and cohesion between members of a team.

Playful creative activities help us to relax, have fun, see challenges differently, and vision innovative solutions.

Exploring boundaries, expressing feelings after transition or loss, and amplifying available resources are areas of focus that are often beneficial to work groups.

Retreats may be indoors, outdoors, or a blend of both. Contact me if you would like to collaborate on planning an innovative and effective retreat for your staff.

I regularly offer trainings and consultation about integrating art into therapeutic work to multidisciplinary clinicians as well as to those who are providing community support in other ways, including teachers, creative professionals, court-appointed special advocates, parents, foster families, and community activists.

Contact me if you would like to request an on-site training, indoors or outside.
