Facilitation Services

Facilitation services are provided by Jenny, a licensed independent social worker, utilizing creative approaches for accessing the right brain/intuitive/subconscious/spiritual aspects of your being. In Western Society we learn to function in primarily linear and rational ways, but sometimes this “thinking” mode leaves us still feeling confused or stuck. When creative and symbolic techniques are used, we have access to inner resources that we often overlook. New clarity, insight and peace of mind can be discovered. We know more than we “think” we know!

Typical sessions may include guided centering meditation, symbol-making, creative journaling and imaginative dialogue. You do not need to be an artist! You do not need to be a “creative person!” You need only to be open to discovery through simple, gentle and playful exploration.

INDIVIDUAL session: $80/hour (two hour minimum)
