Do you feel that you have difficulty grounding yourself in the morning and
you aren't motivated for your day?
Do you want to dive deeper with your art practice to use it as a coping tool?
Did you know that you can use creativity as a superpower to make ripple effects in the world?
That doesn't mean that making art for the sake of making art doesn't feel good. It means that most creatives haven't had the opportunity to move past artistic skill to understand emotional elements in art to support them in their mental health and regulate their emotions.
Our school system doesn't teach us how to create emotional well-being.
In art class we art taught the skills to make a pretty picture.
However, art is a visual language. When you tap into how to use your art to connect with your soul you can receive guidance. You can literally heal emotional wounds and manifest the life you desire.
This isn't about making a pretty picture, there is no judgment. This is about self development and self-expression
I've experienced burn out, feeling stuck, high anxiety, and not knowing where to begin.
There have been different points in my life where my art has saved me.
One of them was when my children were little and I lost myself.
I was taking care of everyone's else needs other than my own.
It felt like I was in a hole and I didn't know how to get out.
Thankfully, I got the support I needed from an art therapist.
I started building boundaries, learned how to tackle my people pleasing ways, and built up my self-worth.
Many of my private clients experience this same pattern.
A big game changer for me was creating routines in my life to make art my priority for self-care.
Creating a morning routine in order to get myself grounded helped tremendously.
I've been practicing art therapy for 20 years now.
What I know for sure is that I find my mental well-being balance through my art practice.
The reason I created the 21 Day Healing Art Journal is to set you up on an inspired journey.
Each day you are led through a 15 minute art making exercise that has a specific theme.
Every three days we explore different elements of each chakra (energy centers).
If so, I've got good news for you:
You don't have to stay stuck, anxious, or uninspired.
It's time to get into your creative flow.
It's proven that short term, daily, consistent practices have a powerful effect in creating new habits
(more impactful than hour long sessions once a week).
Each day you receive guidance and action steps for self-inquiry to build a beautiful self-care practice in just 3 weeks.

"I'm so grateful our paths crossed! Your gift of art and healing has been so helpful. So many things have happened during the 21 Art Healing Journal Days. It helped me get through my avoidance and hold space for my feelings. It challenged me to dive deep into who I am with acceptance (rather than other people's expectations of me).
Thank you!" ~~Jackie D.
