People have been asking me for years to start a class or workshop or even to write a book about my particular process of Therapeutic Writing. It’s something I’ve been passionate about for a long time. But, I’ve never done anything on a large scale—until now!
As a nurse, I’ve worked one-on-one with clients who had cancer, chronic illnesses, and addiction. I’ve given writing assignments to people with histories of trauma and/or abuse, depression and eating disorders. I’ve helped people process their thoughts, clarify their goals and find peace within hearts where chaos once lived.
I know the power of Therapeutic Writing. It’s transformative and cathartic. I’ve seen it help people when nothing else seemed to work.
That’s why I developed ViaWrite!
ViaWrite is the answer to all those who requested that my program be more widely available. Now, in the comfort of your own home, you’ll have access to my unique set of writing assignments, all of which are specifically designed to help you heal what you need to heal, fix what you need to fix, plan what you need to plan and then find the inspiration to get on with it!
Currently, there are two 6-week course options to choose from.
- The first option is Self-Directed. You get a new assignment each day to work on at home, on your own. You’ll have the opportunity to post your writing and your thoughts with other ViaWriters—if you feel comfortable enough to do so. And, I’ll pop in and add to conversation when it’s needed!
- The other option is the Facilitator Guided Course. This one is a little bit more personal. You’ll work one-on-one with me (or another trained facilitator) on weekly assignments that you’ll turn in for feedback.
Here’s an example of what feedback between and writer and a facilitator looks like.
We’re excited to hit the ground running! I hope you find the information on this site useful. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!
Be sure to check back often and sign up for blog updates. In the next coming weeks, I’ll post a few of the writing assignments you’ll get when you sign up for the 6 Week Self-Directed Course.
Also, pop over and “Like” us on Facebook! We’re going to start posting daily writing prompts there soon!
I can’t wait to get started on this journey with you!
