No. While Sherry is a Licensed MFT and Expressive Arts specialist in the state of California, the exercises and tools she will be teaching here differ from actual therapy in a clinical setting. Also, the ZOOM Room we are using is not HIPAA compliant.
Consider Wellness Through Expressive Arts as more of a wellness coaching program.
Your signature assures us that you understand that what we're providing is NOT Art Therapy and is not a replacement for individual therapy.
Yes! You must be 18 years old to join.
You only need a web browser, video cam, and mic to enter the ZOOM Room. I'll send you a link before each session. Click on the link and follow the prompts.
The ZOOM Room is password protected and only those with the password will have access so please don't share it with anyone. And, the ZOOM gives the option of recording sessions, but we will not be doing so for your privacy. Furthermore we will ask that anything that is said in the ZOOM Room stays in the ZOOM Room, unless of course we believe that you are in crisis and need intervention.
That's the magic of Wellness Through Expressive Arts! You don't have to have an artsy-fartsy bone in your body to participate and get the therapeutic benefits of participating.
It depends on the quality and how much you want to spend. Items can be found at Walmart, Hobby Lobby, Dick Blick's, Michaels, and Amazon. We are looking at providing a tote bag with supplies for purchase to begin your journey and will let you know when that's available.
We aim for each session to be 60 minutes long, but the first session of the course will be 90 minutes to allow for orientation.
The course is five months long and begins each July and January.
The sessions aren't recorded for your privacy and protection, so you'll be unable to 'make up' a session, but each session is independent of the other, therefore you'll be able to join us for the next session without being behind.
The short answer is YES! The long answer is that you have 30 days - until August 13th to request your refund and you must have attended at least two of the three sessions during that time and show me the artwork you created. I will not ask to share your interpretation of the art you create. Email me at Lauralee@colorjoy.co for refund requests.
The course is meant to be uplifting as well as healing. Being a Christian community means that we abide by Christian tenants and will treat everyone with courtesy, respect, and love regardless of your religious affiliation.
Before venturing on this endeavor, I was a cryptologic technician in the Navy. I got my programmer/analyst certificate from the University of West Florida, my undergraduate degree in MIS from Northwest Christian University, and studied for a Masters degree in cyber security at the University of Maryland University College.
I often hear women, talk about how stressed out, anxious, or depressed they are. I hear ya! My kidlets (I often refer to them as the “spawned ones) are all grown and on their own. Yet, I still have no motivation on some days and take medication daily. So, I get you. I really get you. So, let’s figure this out together, mmk?
I want you to know that mental illness doesn't discriminate. I'm a Bible based mental health coach, and yet, I still have difficulty getting out of bed some days.
I have multiple mental health diagnoses, including major depressive disorder (MDD) with dysthymia, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), PTSD due to sexual trauma, vocal cord dysfunction (VCD) with conversion disorder – I sometimes have difficulty breathing that mimics an asthma attack.
Sometimes I feel like I’m diagnosed with alphabet soup! Did I mention, that I get you?
I recently became interested in expressive arts and wanted to bring Wellness Through Expressive Arts to you
Let's do this!
I"m a Christian and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who specializes in Expressive Arts Therapy. For the past 25 years I've counseled individuals, couples, families and groups to promote emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. I've provided workshops, groups and courses teaching people to use art as a part of the healing process.
I received my masters degree in Counseling Psychology from National University of San Diego, CA and received my certificate in Expressive Arts Therapy from Sky Mountain. In addition, I received my undergraduate degree in Communications from Point Loma Nazarene University.
I taught other therapists how to incorporate artistic expression into clinical sessions in a way that is simple and effective. After selling my thriving private practice in Escondido, California, I moved to Tennessee and began to develop my own artistic skills more deeply and now specialize in painting with acrylics.
As a wife, mother, follower of Jesus, and artist, I enjoy teaching other women to paint and make art in a way that is refreshing, expressive, and fun.
I'm excited to be part of the Color Joy team!
It’s time to play the Color Joy way! And, live colorfully and joyously!
