The name "Expressive Hearts" was inspired by my work for 6 years with the kids and teens of the YMCA Family Servuces Program. You can see some of their work in the Art Gallery.

What I have found is that we often become so driven by external demands and expectations in life that we lose sight of our most meaningful connection of all: to our hearts (soul, spirit, wisdom, center). Although I believe "reason" to be a powerful and important element of our happiness and success, when we stop listening to our hearts we become lost.

Much of my work is about encouraging people to deepen self awareness and compassion within and achieve a greater balance of "acceptance and change" and "heart and mind" when meeting the possibilities and challenges of every day life.


I offer invoices for my services which you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement.
