Hold out for the right medicine. You will recognize it

because it makes your life stronger rather than weaker.

~ Clarissa Pinkola Estes

As a healing arts facilitator, my passion lies with you, a woman who has experienced trauma. I’m devoted to you, to your story, and to your healing journey by offering you three primary healing arts practices:

  • Journaling, or writing for self-discovery, personal growth, and self-expression
  • Creative expression through various basic art supplies, along with visual journaing
  • Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive yoga (TCTSY)

Through December 19, 2016, I’m offering free 30 minute sessions for women who are feeling emotionally overwhelmed following the 2016 Presidential Election. During 30 minutes together, we will do a grounding practice followed by either creative expression or journaling, your choice.

If you’re in therapy, please consult with your therapist or counselor to make sure they are aware of your interest in these healing arts, and to see if they believe the practices are complementary to your therapy.

As Dr. Pinkola Estes says, the right medicine makes your life stronger.

Maybe the healing arts of journaling, creative expression, and TCTSY are right for you.

FAQs about Ginny

What are your qualifications to be a healing arts facilitator?

My formal qualifications include an MA in interdisciplinary studies (Hiram College) and an MFA in creative writing (Ashland University), along with a BS in medical science (Alderson-Broaddus College). I took my Journal to the Self certification through The Therapeutic Writing Institute, and I’m presently completing the Certified Journal Facilitation program (Therapeutic Writing Institute). In addition, I am 200 level Registered Yoga Teacher and published writer. I’ve studied creative expression with Lisa Sonora and Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) with David Emerson of the Trauma Center, Brookline, MA.

A lifetime of experience, education, professional development, and self study have molded me into the healing arts facilitator I am today–a woman who believes in the integrative healing power of yoking several healing arts practices together for self exploration and healing following trauma.

To do this kind of work you must be a life-long learner. So I seek out books, videos, podcasts, blogs, articles, and networks that focus on trauma neuroscience, trauma-informed care, healing arts, and trauma recovery.

But all of this doesn’t tell you the full story.

I’m also a trauma survivor, a woman who experienced sexual abuse as a child and knows the painful consequences of keeping this kind of a wound buried for thirty years. While on my healing journey, I’ve experienced traditional and non-traditional therapies for depression and PTSD. I believe there is a need for both. I also believe that there are many healing arts that can provide hope and healing to women who’ve experienced trauma. It should never been a one-size-fits-all kind of journey towards wholeness and resiliency.
