Expressive Arts NYC helps women who have lost their spark for life to reconnect to their creativity so they can take charge of their lives and remember how it feels to be excited to wake up each day. Using the arts and creative expression, my clients (in person in NYC and online) embrace their imagination and intuition, leading to discovery and clarity, and action. You can work with me through one-on-one coaching, in small groups, or in workshops held throughout the year. 

My dream is for all people to recognize that their innate creativity is a pathway to loving their lives. When we practice non-judgmental creative expression, we learn to accept all of who we are and treat ourselves with more love, kindness, and compassion. When creative expression is deeply valued by everyone, it will lead to an empathetic world where stress is the exception, not the rule.


At Expressive Arts NYC, art is the pathway to self-discovery, growth, and transformation. I believe that adults need more opportunities for open-ended creative expression that will help them be healthier, happier, more whole human beings. 

All of our offerings are for anyone 16 and up. That means you. No art experience, confidence, or skills are ever needed for coaching, workshops, or events. Everything offered is designed so that anyone can participate. 

Engaging in Expressive Arts means using all of the art forms (visual arts, writing, drama, movement, and music), interweaving them to help you go deeper while reigniting your creativity. When you work with me, you enter a space that strengthens your imagination, intuition, and sense of play. The results include less stress, a deeper sense of calm, more joy, and greater self-understanding.

Here are a few things we think it's important for you to know.


1. You do not need any art experience. This work is not about skill or outcome, it's about letting your imagination and intuition take the wheel for a while. No skills, experience, or confidence are needed. Ever.

2. There is no right, wrong, good, or bad in the expressive arts. We work in an environment of non-judgment and kindness, and we accept whatever image or movement or color arises. 

3. Art is for everyone. That means you!

Rest assured, art is something human beings have been doing for thousands of years for a reason. Art heals, it relaxes, it energizes, it lets us connect with ourselves and others, and it reminds us to play. Want to try it out for yourself?
