Something you notice right away is Lani’s compassion and heart for people. Experienced in creating a trauma, informed therapeutic art process and uniquely skilled to enter into that space, she creates a calming safe environment while the client does their own work. Lani’s approach is a different way to help clients unlock and express emotion, learn more about themselves, and even experience healing. For your own therapeutic creative process, or as a resource to refer your clients, I cannot recommend Lani Kent/Healing Expressions enough!

It is with remarkable gentleness and understanding born out of an authentic journey that Lani offers herself to guide others into a creative expression of their souls. Her distinctive use of the Therapeutic Collage and her “Restorative Creativity’ processes are a powerful means of transformation and healing.

The Restorative Creativity Workshop with Lani was an amazing experience for me. It helped me learn a new way to process my emotions and begin healing. I felt hope after hearing Lani’s story and her heart. I would recommend it to anyone that is searching for a healthier life, a more clear soul. It was very healing to be with someone that has taken the time to search and heal. I am thankful I had this opportunity.
