Expressive Arts

The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.”
–Carl Rogers

Expressive arts expand creativity and can be used to facilitate change and growth. The process of expressive arts uses visual arts, movement, music, writing, sound, and improvisation in a safe and supportive setting. I use Person-Centered Expressive Arts and one’s inner wisdom while immersed in the process of expressive arts.
