Julia Schwab, MA, LPC introduces the ART EXPERIENCE via her homepage video. Watch the process as visual language opens new awareness and information, solves problems, and enriches mystery. Here, through Art Therapy, creative involvement simultaneously calms and stimulates each person in their engagement with materials and imagination. For those who are nonverbal all the way to those who are overly-polished, the art making experience is a quick and enjoyable opportunity to bypass analytic discourse. A sense of play and discovery safely awakens and enlivens the inner spark. Julia gently, encouragingly fosters this exciting and vulnerable process. See her website for a flavor!

Peter Strong - Mindfulness Meditation Therapy (MMT) is a powerful way of working with difficult emotions such as depression and anxiety, recurrent fear, phobias, grief and anger by using the natural healing effects of mindfulness. Unlike other approaches that use mindfulness to facilitate relaxation, MMT applies mindfulness directly to the underlying felt sense of an emotional reaction, thus establishing an open and non-reactive mindfulness based relationship with the emotional complex. This provides an ideal environment for transformation and resolution. Peter Strong, trained in the UK and US teaches classes on MMT to psychotherapists, physicians and health workers. Peter also offers MMT sessions for individuals and couples. Email enquirties welcome. 970-492-5198 (cell).
