Creative Journal Expressive Arts

My TreasuresI am the Regional Coordinator and East Coast Associate Supervisor for the Creative Journal Expressive Arts, a method originated and pioneered by Lucia Capacchione Ph.D., A.T.R., R.E.A.T. After successful careers in both art and education, Dr. Capacchione developed this healing power of creating art and journaling with both your dominant and your non-dominant hand. Throughout her 22 books she suggests exploring various methods including music to express feelings through rhythm, body movement and drawing stimulating creativity to help us get in touch with our bodies and our emotions in non-verbal ways. Her books are for anyone wanting to explore a variety of media (clay, paint, collage, etc.) as you follow her instructions to analyze and discover the healing powers within.

As the Regional Coordinator for CJEA I work along with Dr. Lucia Capacchione and her Supervisor Dr. Marsha Nelson to create adventures worldwide introducing these methods which help you:

1. Deal with feelings in a safe, healthy, and productive way
2. Uncover hidden artistic abilities
3. Discover the playful spirit so essential to the creative process
4. Release old emotions stored in parts of the body
5. Change negative attitudes about ourselves
6. Heal our relationships with others

I am also certified in facilitating workshops in Visioning® for life and career planning,
another program developed by Dr. Lucia Cappachione.
