I believe we all have the power to heal and care for ourselves. I believe we all need a safe place to discover and practice this....and so I have created the Playhouse.

I PROMISE that here you will never be ...
There always seems to be some confusion and so I want to clarify and hopefully ease your worry a bit if you are thinking "I would LOVE to create something but I am not an artist and I'm not creative". No need to worry because the Expressive Arts and Intuitive Painting are NOT about creating a pretty picture to hang on your wall and you need zero art making experience (whew what a relief!). It's about being present, open, loving, and curious while using the visual arts (i.e. painting, collage), movement, sound, storytelling for self-discovery, healing, and transformation. And the awesome thing is that every womxn knows how to do this! You were born with this gift, you may just need a little coaxing to let it out into the world (that's why you have me and tons of art supplies!). You get to play again and explore again and just show up as your authentic self. How amazing is that!!!
At the Playhouse it's about the process of engaging with your creative muse and learning to trust your intuition. You already know what you need and want ... and here you will get back in touch with your internal compass and learn to trust it again. You will find what you need to feel nourished, vibrant, alive! All while connecting with other loving women who are seeking the same things.
Together we will laugh, dance, scream, cry and everything else in between as we embark on this journey together of breaking free from the chains of perfection and people pleasing and return to our wild and untamed state. We will access our intuition, learn to trust our own wisdom, follow our own rhythm and flow, create BIG and BOLD things, and ask for what we truly want.
I am thrilled beyond words to embark on this journey with you. My deepest desire is that you listen to your heart and allow it to lead you into the WILD!
