I BECAME A THERAPEUTIC ART LIFE COACH WITH UDEMY UNIVERSITY IN 2019. A year later I became certified as a Cosmic Smash Book Teacher/Guide with Cqtt Geller, the founder of CSB. As a woman, as a creative woman, as an artist, I saw instantly how healing could be supported using smash books, and so THAT is the primary tool I use for art therapy.
I offer two smash book programs:
When women first learn the construction of a smash book and hold a scrunched-up paged-transformed notebook in their hands, most look at me dumbfounded, and yet already feeling better just through the first five acts of smash booking!
THAT is both the magic and the richness of such a simple but very liberating form of art therapy.
Please note: I am not a certified Psychologist.
"The page is a portal. A place to dive in and feel the connection between myself and the great mystery. To feel the play and the sparkle of the universe, like deep ocean waters that move us. It’s like bubbles, riding the bubbles of the universe, feeling kelp beds all around, and finding your way through to blue ocean water beyond.
It’s a coming home." ~ Catt, creator of CSB
The 4 Rules of Smash Booking are:
1. There are no rules
2. Have Fun
3. Don't Stop
4. When In Doubt Go Back To Rule #1
During the course of your smash booking processes you will understand why smashbookers often exclaim:
I have an open Smash Book Club.

This program offers participants a more traditional process for working with a smash book, that will result in a certification as a Visionary Artist Smash Book Art Therapy Healer / Guide or Visionary Artist Smash Book Healer / Guide.
Why do I offer both Healer and Guide to certified apprentices?
Healer is used by many non-traditional healing modalities practitioner. For example those of us who are Reiki Master consider ourselves to be healers, just as herbalists do. Whereas Guide is better suited for individuals who wish to work with an individual or a small group and "guide" individuals through a self-exploration process using. a smash book without placing an emphasis on "healer" or "healing".
Both titles are equally valid.
This program contains 5 modules (some of which involve multiple classes) through which you will work, during which you will be required to create two smash books.
This program is a SOLO training, one-on-one with Kisma.
Module 1 - The five step process of creating a smash book. Understanding the transformational process of entering into the alchemical process aligned with healing. A discussion on alchemy, portals, transformation, and consent will be held. [2-3 classes as needed.]
Module 2 - The creation of two traditional spreads that every smash book usually contains. I am a traditionalist in all things and so because I learned these from the founder of CSM I bring it into all my smash book courses. For as is stated by the Mandalorians: "This is the way." [2 classes.]
Modules 3 - 5 - We will move through a series of spreads that contain specific intentions and can be likened to a prescription but go beyond the bandaid into the core of issues. These three modules involve art therapy processes and journaling. [Each module has 2 classes.]
Certification - Once all five modules are completed, the final phase is for certification and includes consultation with Kisma; the creation of a smash book with guidelines; one healing requirement; one guide requirement. [2 classes, though timeline is based on the individual's execution of requirements.]
Certification Program ~ $640
Classroom and course details (designed per individual) will be emailed. Live ZOOM.
From an early age I have believed in the Faery! I met Tinkerbell at the age of 3, and that childhood impression sank deep inside me, encoding me with a key to my psyche and throughout my life, that key has been used to continually unlock deep mysteries inside my soul.
This program is. a bundle of joy I share with you, a bundle filled with all things I most hold sacred.
This program is a bundle of four individual courses I developed over a four year period that I learned going through each were interlinked. The original key unlocked the path, and each course unlocked a door that lead deeper and deeper into my soul.
Do you believe in fairies?
I DO I DO!

In our last session of Faerie Thyme we opened to the Faery Princess, our Elemental Faerie Muse, who resides at the sacred center of our Fairy Ring. She waits ready as our Companion to take us through the portal Into Faeryland and meet THE Faerie Queen!
Can you even imagine what The Faerie Queen will be like? Not like a fairytale, that much I will share. No, now we leave the images of elemental and literary fairies behind and meet a different class of Fae and Faery lore.
In the process you will let go of something holding you back from connecting with your magic! Your whimsical nature has begun to lighten-up and reconnect you with that soulful inner child, who so desperately wants to come out and play! Smiles and joyfulness is the promise of your soulful inner child! Plus, real magick awaits you!

My personal Ireland video sharings
Plus a Bonus Faery Healing spread
Did you know Ireland is named after one of the Irish Triple Goddesses?
In the Faery-Faith Tradition, the Faery Way, Gods & especially Goddesses abound. These are known as the Sidhe, The Shining Ones, which eventually, over hundreds of thousands of year dwindled across the world into those cute little winged beings everyone knows of as fairies!
If you are drawn to anything Celtic, if you feel a personal connection to Ireland whether you've been there or not, if you BELIEVE in fairies, then you are perfectly aligned with this entire FAERY WAY PATH and I am confirming once again that YOU are in the right place, at the right time! Oh yes! Pure Synchronicity! Love it!
This phase of your Adventure you will explore three Goddesses known as the Irish Triple Faery Goddess! You'll dive deeply into each of them as you smash and paint or collage or just go wild with each while opening to each of their mystic and magikal wisdom.
5 Classes: 5 recordings, downloadable images
In this course you will learn of the Four Magic Talismans and if lucky receive the Sacred Key. All five hold magical properties that will heal you and open you to your original soul self! In ancient Ireland the Shining Ones known as the Tuatha De Danann brought with them to mystic isle 4 magical tools: a Stone, a Sword, a Spear and a Cauldron. Each governed a cardinal direction, a Faery City, a Province on the Island and was rich with lore of magic and wonder.
At the conclusion of our Four Part Adventure into the Faery Way, you will receive a very special gift!
