His art therapy program is for adults living with epilepsy. This strength’s based program provides an opportunity for participants to explore their creativity, learn new coping skills and build community in an open, accepting and safe group setting.

Please join us for this amazing mind and heart expanding opportunity! This program is not about creating “good” art.
