Don't have time to read all the current books, or the finances to consult a professional individually? Already see a therapist but would like to explore a topic creatively from a different angle? Do you enjoy group settings and what community provides in learning? Try the Art Therapy Workshop Series brought to you by Jennifer Harkness, MA, LMHC, ATR and Courageous Heart Healing, LLC. Workshops are an affordable and time saving way to explore topics, get answers and grow! You will leave each workshop with more knowledge, an art creation of your making, and a small workbook.  No art skills required, participation is optional.

While workshops can be therapeutic it is important to note that they are not therapy, they are psychoeducational classes with an experiential component. Attendees only share and partcipate in what they feel comfortable with and while confidentiality is not guaranteed it is encouraged to keep discussions outside of workshops focused on your own personal experience and not that of others. 

The workshops will be held at the amazing Youngstown Cultural Center at 4408 Delridge Way SW, Seattle WA 98106 in classroom 103.



Space is limited to 24 per workshop and are being held by popular demand, so sign up soon, they will fill fast! You may register below through Paypal or by e-mailing if you would prefer to pay cash or check before the workshop via mail. 72 hour cancelation required or you will need to pay for the workshop in full. (Exceptions made for illness or emergency on a case by case basis.)
