The Holiday Survival Course provides a 6 step proven method of improving ease surrounding the holidays. I’ve offered this information with clients since 2009 and have continued to see clients benefit from applying the information to their holidays and special events throughout the year.
We all face different struggles throughout the year. Our inner responses tend to be heightened and even on overdrive during the holiday season. We may or may not even be aware of what’s underlying this discomfort. Sometimes, we have hints and we just don’t know what to do about it.
I’m here to tell you, you don’t have to go it alone this year...
This course is a 6 week program to guide you through the steps of making this holiday a bit more comfortable for you.
There are some things that make this program unique...
Each module will have an educational, an interactive, and an “artful” lesson to help you learn. After the first week, we will learn about your specific struggle and you will receive a personal message from me to give you some additional tools to try.
I finally put this information together for you after seeing my clients benefit from this strategy for years. If you are facing new struggles this year, you will benefit from simple steps may lead you to the comfort you seek at this time.
What I love...
This information can be used for any type of event throughout the year. Any type of event, gathering or holiday can be approached with this same method. Eventually, it becomes how you approach a number of life events.
Let me introduce myself... Hello, I'm Julie.
I created these artful courses for YOU! I know the importance of quality information when you are searching for understanding within your current situation. Unfortunately, the internet is full of discussion groups that give misinformation, are a collection of personal experiences, or simply opinion. That may distract you from your own growth and empowerment.
You may be looking for some self-help tools. These courses can guide you through.
On the other hand, you may not have resources in your area OR you may not want to participate in groups or workshops due to the private nature of your situation. Please note: these courses are not a replacement for professional counseling if you are in need. You are welcome regardless of where you live. Within the courses, it is encouraged you share your experiences as you feel comfortable with other course participants. I hope you find useful information and tools to help you now.
I share my experiences from a personal and professional perspective... giving you what has worked in my life as well as for my clients so you don't have to try to figure it out all on your own. I have had my own personal experience with infertility, grief and a unique experience of parenting. My husband and I were able to became parents through foster care adoption and we ended our foster parenting journey when we moved out of Illinois. I'm here to tell you, there is hope. Life may seem uncertain right now. After significant deaths, my life was different. After infertility treatment, my life was different. After becoming a foster & adoptive parent, my life was different yet again. I have and will continue to grow and deepen my relationship with my spirit through these experiences.
Art Therapy and Counseling are a second career for me that began In 2009. Interestingly, my first career was in broadcast communication. I decided to make a necessary and rewarding change to counseling and art therapy after caregiving for my own mother-in-law. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Nationally Certified Counselor and a Registered Art Therapist. I have presented in throughout Illinois and have traveled in the US to present regarding art therapy, grief, and coping. Learn more about my experience and professional memberships.
