I am often asked why I do this type of work - the answer is simple: Because it gives me great joy... the gifts of creativity and compassion return to me tenfold every time I share my self in this way. The joy and enthusiasm people experience from their own creativity is very magical and very real. My job is to facilitate what I call The Journey Within; through writing and doodling and creating, people tap into their own wisdom and their own power to heal.
