Aligning Your Inner Self is a meditation journal that was created to teach you about self-care through self-compassion. Author Christina E. Fontenelle is an Art Therapist, a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern, and a Dance/Movement Therapy Intern. Christina wanted to encourage people to use creative writing as an outlet for a safe space and also to give your daily thoughts a place to live outside of yourself, on paper.
Our primary teacher is our CEO, Christina Fontenelle, but we are actively hiring teachers.
Christina is a certified therapist and instructor in all of the offerings she provides. Our framework is based on using a trauma-informed lens and culturally inclusive approach. Each class is customized to the intended audience such as music selection, energy dynamic, and wording/terminology used.
Art therapy is an integrative mental health and human services profession that enriches the lives of individuals, families, and communities through active art-making, creative process, applied psychological theory, and human experience within a psychotherapeutic relationship. Art therapy, facilitated by a professional art therapist, effectively supports personal and relational treatment goals as well as community concerns. Art therapy is used to improve cognitive and sensorimotor functions, foster self-esteem and self-awareness, cultivate emotional resilience, promote insight, enhance social skills, reduce and resolve conflicts and distress, and advance societal and ecological change.
Dance/Movement Therapy (DMT) is defined as the psychotherapeutic use of movement to promote emotional, social, cognitive, and physical integration of the individual, for the purpose of improving health and well-being.
DMT is a holistic approach to healing, based on the empirically supported assertion that mind, body, and spirit are inseparable and interconnected; changes in the body reflect changes in the mind and vice versa. DMT as an embodied, movement-based approach is often difficult to describe, as it is necessary to actively engage in the process to get a true sense of what it is.
All ages, and the services are customized. The youngest age we have worked with is 3 weeks, and the oldest is 98 years old.
