Biography

In my early work as an art therapist I specialized in providing healing art experiences to disabled children and older adults. More recently, I have been developing programming at the interface of art, ecology and spirituality. My approach is based on a synthesis of information from world religions, indigenous wisdom traditions, ecopsychology and transpersonal psychology. The arts serve as the container and primary vehicle for expressing this synthesized knowledge and for addressing the health and healing needs of the individual or group.
