Do you feel like you’re living in black & white? Do you find yourself:

  • Burying your hurts but acting like everything's ok?

  • Feeling stuck & powerless from past trauma? 

  • Feeling insecure, abandoned or rejected inside?

  • Angry and distant from God?

There IS hope!

God can heal you as you create.

  • Spiritually: Experience God’s extravagant love and discover His plan for your life

  • Emotional Release: Learn to let go of pain from your past

  • Relationally: Learn to trust God, love yourself, and trust others

  • Sexually: If it’s been stolen, God wants to restore your innocence and purity

  • Family: Find acceptance and belonging in God’s spiritual family as He restores broken relationships.

So how does this work?


All my life I’ve wondered how to help others become free. I’ve seen so many people, including myself, know about God without ever feeling truly loved and accepted, because of the pain from their past.

This led me to earning my degree in Psychology from Vanguard University, along with an Art in Healing certificate from Chapman University. I saw how deeply people suffered and how much God wants to heal us. 

Through simple art exercises, I began to see people with PTSD, deep trauma and emotional pain be completely set free!

John 10:10 says that the enemy comes to kill, steal, and destroy, but that God has come to give life and that more abundantly.

So how do we receive the “more abundantly” part and take back what was stolen from us?

Knowing about God’s love is not the same as allowing God to heal the pain deep inside. It’s like living with a splinter. Sure, we can function, but every time something presses against that splinter, pain resurfaces and we’re back in the same cycle. But we don’t have to stay there!

Programs that include art within the healing process have been proven incredibly effective because art bypasses our rational and let’s us explore the wounds in our subconscious.

Unresolved trauma leads to broken relationships, addictions, and false belief systems that keep us from facing the pain to let God heal us.

Creativity can break through that barrier.

In 2009, I was asked by a UN representative to go to Rwanda and work with the genocide orphans. These victims saw their families massacred as children, and the trauma made them unable to function in society.  My job was to bring healing to them through creativity. 

Though I never had done this before, I developed a curriculum where they encountered God’s Presence in the midst of their trauma and PTSD. These children told their stories for the first time through creativity. As the children created art, danced, crafted, photographed and began writing, they encountered freedom. Some have even gone on to become accomplished creatives!

Wow! God dangled this carrot in front of me and said, “Theresa, do you want to create a program for others too?”

This adventure led me to going back to Chapman University to study Art in Healing. I adapted the program with the Holy Spirit into a 6-week course that has brought healing to:

The sex slave trade

Isis victims in Iraq 

Refugees in Greece and other countries

After seeing such proven success, I wanted to develop this online course for you using the same principles I learned in Rwanda.
