Have you experienced a pregnancy loss?
Our June intensive is geared towards those that have experienced a loss before week 24 of pregnancy.
Groups resume Fall, 2023
Presented by Rebecca Weimer
Rebecca is a trained Art Therapist and Professional Counselor. She is passionate about the integration of art into the healing of grief and trauma after pregnancy loss. Before pursuing her dual degree, Rebecca experienced both a still birth and first trimester miscarriage. She created this four-session curriculum as a part of her thesis for her Master's program. We are excited to offer this beautiful piece of Rebecca's heart to loss moms throughout Middle Tennessee.
“Art speaks where words are unable to explain.”

In This Group You Will:
“The art therapy intensive was a very healing day for me. I don’t consider myself an artist or artistic but I felt so comfortable with Rebecca guiding us. She led us through some different mediums that weren’t intimidating at all. We were able to create whatever felt right to us. Being able to share my experience through art helped give me a language I didn’t have before. Hearing other women’s stories further validated my own experiences. I walked away feeling lighter and that I even had a new tool set to express my grief.”

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to have any art experience?
Zero art experience is necessary. Just a willingness to create, while trying to engage in the process of healing through art. “Making art is always a process of structuring chaos.” - Dr. Bruce Moon
Art Therapy primarily uses the right side of your brain, which is where trauma is held, allowing easier access to processing painful experience. “Different studies and research show that when we engage in art-making, it helps the neurological system relax. Brain chemical levels will decrease and bring about relaxation for many people, which also helps the nervous system calm down." - Margaret Carlock Russo, President of the AATA
What if I am already doing talk therapy?
This group can be done in conjunction with other forms of therapy. We value both and honor the ongoing process of healing you have already begun. Art therapy engages other parts of the brain and allows us to process things differently. “I could say things with color and shape that I couldn’t’ say any other way – things I had no words for…” – Margaret Naumburg
What are the benefits of art therapy?
The American Art Therapy Association says the benefits of art therapy include:
Development of self-esteem and self-awareness
Reduction and resolution of conflicts and distress
Beneficial for treating anxiety and depression, common symptoms of traumatic experience
What if my loss was a long time ago?
Whether your grief was last cycle or a decade ago, you are welcome to join us. The process of grief is not linear and sometimes when we thought we had moved forward us, grief returns to remind us of that which we have lost. All experiences of pregnancy loss are welcome.
