About

Have you ever felt that words were not enough? You've tried talking, but it doesn't seem to work, at least not for very long. You find yourself wondering what you can do to feel better. Coping with stress, living with uncertainty and meeting the challenges of everyday life are often difficult to describe in words alone. Imagine what it would feel like to enjoy the process of self-discovery, personal growth and understanding. Your creative process can become your road to emotional wellbeing - a safe and gratifying way to explore difficult experiences and emotions such as fear, sadness, frustration, and anxiety.
Creative Arts Therapy provides unique support to your personal journey, enabling you to achieve lasting change. It successfully helps with anxiety, depression, brain injuries, trauma, chronic pain, cancer treatment and more. Everyone can participate because it's not about artistic skill; it's about healthy creative expression. It's about the process, not the product!
In order to accommodate busy lives, I offer evening and weekend appointments. Together, we'll create a customized plan to nurture deep personal growth and transformation. Visit my website to learn more and schedule your free consultation today.

Susan Merletti's Groups

Women's Ways of Wisdom

Women's Ways of Wisdom is an intentional visioning space of co-healing where women committed to living courageously can gather to learn from their feminine power. Using our inner feminine wisdom and traditional women's teachings, we will transform our personal consciousness and connect with the collective consciousness that empowers women's voices and helps us to bring our unique contributions to the world. Embracing change can bring meaningful new work and relationships and awaken undiscovered creativity. If you are being called to step out of your comfort zone, this group is for you.

More about this group

SoulCollage® Second Saturday

SoulCollage® is a process through which you awaken your intuition by creating a personal deck of incredible, beautiful cards. Some people describe it as "spiritual scrap-booking". By connecting with your subconscious, these cards reveal deep personal meanings and will guide you in your quest to answer life's questions. SoulCollage® is an invaluable tool for guiding you towards the realization of your own inner wisdom as you transition through the stages of life. It accelerates and deepens your awareness of your unique talents, and the ways you can enrich your life and the lives of those around you.
