Art is fun, and I love fun!  To this end, I endeavor to dedicate a portion of my practice to art therapy programs that I design and create for the communities I visit or call my home.  

Art Outreach is a program I originally created and directed in college at Duke University and again in medical school at the University of Michigan.  The program was funded by private donations, grants from the community, and my personal income.  It was 100% free to all participants and facilitated by myself or trained volunteers.  

Art Outreach occasionally resurfaces to present eclectic art therapy experiences or workshops at festivals, community centers, and beyond.  Sessions always involve an expressive art activity (including visual art, dancing, music, or poetry), meditation instruction, and a sharing circle component.  

If you are interested in volunteering, sponsoring, or learning more about this program, please contact me directly.
