Groups & Workshops
Why Participate in a Creative Group or Workshop?
At times, arts-process creative group therapy and visual journaling can work better than individual therapy, and better still, when combined with occasional individual sessions.
All groups and workshops support and encourage diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and justice for all, always!
To ensure we’re a good fit for the practice we’re about to embark on together, I like to start with a phone call. Please call me at (415) 488-5557. If I’m unable to pick up the phone, please leave a message and I will get back to you soon.
Creative groups are an opportunity to immerse in the imagination.
I approach group psychotherapy with a creative approach to immersion in the imagination. We come together in a safe space to explore new pathways into and through the deep psyche. The individuals in the group engage through mixed media visual journaling, sharing and discussing their images and reflecting on what arises. This becomes an integrative process in which the psyche leads the way to self-healing and individuation by expressing with image, texture, and color. Dreams are woven in, life events come into play, deep feelings appear on paper.
Creative groups are a way to strengthen interpersonal relationships with others —and yourself.
Naturally, interpersonal relationships provide both complexities and increased support. Even conflicts can engender progress. Feelings of isolation, depression, or anxiety can be expressed safely, and significant change can occur. The potential one person feels interweaves with all the others in the room as group learning, a sense of acceptance, and transformative experience takes place. There are both personal and collective shifts. If you want to be connected with your wholeness so that it empowers you, THIS is the relationship you want to have with yourself!
Workshops are open to all individuals and at all levels of artistic expression from having never picked up a paintbrush to seasoned artists. I’ve put together a list of supplies you’ll need to for each of the workshops. Please click here to see the list of supplies and suggestions on where to purchase them online. Please contact me if you have questions about which workshop is best for you.
