"Love sparks my creativity"
When I was a little girl I loved walking home after school searching for the perfect treasure to bring to my Mom. I'd scour the landscape looking for beautiful leaves or flowers to pick, acorns or horse chestnuts that had fallen, heart-shaped rocks; something that would touch my Mom’s heart, and remind her how much I loved her. She was always so appreciative of my little gestures, and seeing her light up filled my own heart with joy.
Countless times throughout my life I have been inspired to convey to another how I saw and appreciated them. Love sparks my creativity and my creative fire always seems to burn brightest when I’m making something for someone I love.
In offering my gift I saw over and over again how even the smallest gesture of appreciation could make an enormous difference to a person. And I saw that someone who feels seen and loved is more likely to offer love and kindness to others.
I call this Devotion.
Throughout my entire life I have been devoted to bringing more love into the world, and inspiring others to do the same. This is what drew me to becoming a psychotherapist, and what underlies all of Art of Devotion.
Helping others remember the truth and beauty of who they are by reflecting it back to them feels like part of my DNA.
I bring nearly three decades as a licensed psychotherapist and a lifetime of creativity to my Art of Devotion programs, groups and workshops. My greatest joy is blending soul stirring inspiration and love, with the playful practice of creating devotional art that will amuse, uplift and inspire others...and then watching the waves of love ripple out from there, for the benefit of all.
