Artful Communities are accepting new members!
Chartreuse Center offers Artful Communities for fertility, perinatal and grief struggles through the online school.  This is an excellent opportunity to participate in a community when you need it and leave the community when it's appropriate for you.  Benefit from the membership community through: 

  • The course portion of the membership is a growing library of tools for you - guided meditations, activity guides, art experientials, visualizations, positive intentions,
  • The community is a closed Facebook group that welcomes openness
  • Weekly Facebook Live discussions
  • Focused art based intention for the week
  • Mindful discussion prompts throughout the week
  • Positivity and insight that feeds you throughout your membership.


Each community has a specific focus for you. Artful Fertility is a community for those experiencing some type of difficulty with conceiving or maintaining a pregnancy.  Artful Fertility Transition is a perinatal group for those that experienced fertility struggles.  This community is for those adjusting into pregnancy, waiting parents or new parenting.  Artful Grief is for those experiencing bereavement.

Empowerment through Your Struggle

Restore Your Heart


I created Chartreuse Center with you in mind. I'm here to tell you, there is hope and growth through your pain and struggle.  It may be hard to believe at this point.  You will find yourself again.   You will merge your previous self with the knowledge you gain from these struggles and emerge with a greater appreciation for your life and those around you.  


You are looking for something... something to help you feel like yourself again and as quickly as possible.

  • A reduced a sense of isolation; feeling understood and accepted
  • Understanding of your emotions,  reactions to social situations, and how to cope
  • Clarifying expectations of your friendship and family relationships
  • Identifying the type of support you seek from relationships and how to obtain support
  • Redefining a sense of "self" based on new stage of life
  • A renewed self esteem and your confidence will return
  • Improvement in communication and connection in your marriage and love relationships


I made a clear decision to specialize in order to provide YOU with expertise you deserve and exceptional care to help you move through your experience, understand your struggle, realign your core and restore your heart.
