Pandemic Healing & Play

Creative arts group therapy for the QTBIPOC community during Coronavirus

The creative arts can be a powerful tool in releasing and transforming COVID-19 related stress. Pandemic Healing & Play is a 7-session online therapy group for members of the QTBIPOC (queer, trans, black, indigenous, and other people of color) community.

Each session, we draw from the creative well, which includes music, imagery, poetry, video, movement, role play, and more to facilitate healing and growth.

The full program lasts 10 weeks, which includes an individual session at the beginning, middle, and end of the group.

  • Cost: $20-60 sliding scale (based on income) per session. Pro-bono spots are available.
