Hi There! My name is Sherry Joy Collier and I help creative women achieve their dreams, grow their businesses, and complete their creative projects. For over 20 years, I provided counseling services to individuals, couples, children, and families in my private practice in Southern California. I sold my thriving practice when I moved out of state. Though I am still licensed in the state of California as a Marriage and Family Therapist, I no longer offer clinical counseling but I am excited to provide life and business coaching in both one-to-one sessions and through group coaching. After selling my counseling practice and moving across the country to Tennessee, I decided to take all the skills and gifts I developed as a therapist, artist, and business owner and apply them to my new work as a coach, an instructor, and as an expressive artist.
I also have extensive experience as an Expressive Arts Therapist. Over the years I have taught women and other therapists to use expressive art to heal negative thought patterns and grow new, more positive thought patterns. Leading many workshops and groups, I taught other therapists how to incorporate art into their counseling practice and to use art-making as a way to prevent their own burnout. In addition to creating my own art and crafts, I have taught others how to use a process called Art Journaling to help folks to tap into their creativity, shift emotions, and soar to new heights in their life, career/business, and relationships.
I started “Sherry Joy Collier & Joyful Art Creations” in order to coach, teach, and encourage women to fulfill their higher creative purpose. I offer group coaching, one-on-one life and business coaching for women who want to grow their businesses, add new revenue streams, and re-design their business to better fit with their values and have a joyful life. In addition, I offer online and local courses that teach a variety of art projects (painting, mixed media, expressive art) meant to help women discover their own unique art style and develop their own art practice.
