About this pro

Mandalas for All was born after my retirement as a clinical behavioral specialist and college professor.
I have combined my love for art and my knowledge and experience of behavioral sciences and disabilities as a tool for reaching out to others with the healing power of mandalas.
Workshops are offered for educational and therapeutic purposes to schools, (assisted living facilities, Alzheimer/Dementia day programs, children with socio-emotional needs (Autism) and the regular population.
There is a standing free workshop offered every third Saturday of the month at the headquarters branch of the Alachua County Library, Room B at 2 PM, and a second workshop at the Alachua County Library Millhopper Branch on the last Saturday of the month.
I was trained by Susanne Fincher, a leading author and artist in the field of mandalas. I have been working with mandalas for 15 years.
MANDALAS FOR ALL is available for private sessions and workshops. You can check my mandala work, workshops and educational material on mandalas at my facebook page Mandalas For All.
Review from a partcipant of one of my workshops: 'Wonderful workshops! I've learned so much about myself and art. She has all sorts of supplies and materials, and is always accommodating if you have questions or problems. I recommend Mandalas for All to everyone of all ages!i -Trisha Sibert Russell

The sharing of a transformational tool. As an educator and clinician I love interacting personally with students and teach them how can we keep our sanity in todays's world by using the right side of the brain- that doesn't judge ort analyze- to express feelings, fears, painful mammories or current life issues in a safe activity such as mandala creation.
