I’m interested in finding a way for the creative spirit to re-enter the equation of healing, whether it be through sound, writing, art or touch. I think of massage as the mirror to the body; breath as a sound connected to voice, and art-making as a deep whispering, showing us something about ourselves that we might not be listening to. All these things are self-empowering acts that give us agency over our health. These are all facets of the work I do with people who are curious about the intersection of creativity and healing.
I like to use art to navigate the time I have on this planet. I hold writing sessions for mothers of children of all ages and all kinds of writers with my group, Write On Mama, and have recently added a session for all kinds of people and all kinds of writers. I’ve been a massage therapist for over 30 years and continue to learn about the practice of healing touch, especially when it comes to the nervous system. We are all a wonderful work in progress. Every day I try to do some drawing or write a poem to slow myself down.
Contact me for a free consultation. I work 1:1 or in groups, offering writing workshops, creativity sessions, deep relaxation bodywork (by referral only) and specialized postpartum writing sessions.
