Healing Through Art Expression with Beverly Engel, LMFT 
This workshop will focus on healing trauma, including childhood abuse (emotional, physical and sexual) and adult trauma (domestic violence, emotional abuse, sexual assault) as well as the loss of a loved one or other types of trauma. Focusing on artistic expression as a healing tool, Beverly, a licensed psychotherapist, will offer strategies, prompts, demonstrations and guidance to help you safely identify and express your emotions of fear, anger, sadness, and shame, heal the damage caused by trauma, and create a positive future.
This will be a safe yet powerful workshop that can help you process unexpressed emotions and move through stuck places in your recovery.
