Besides therapy, flowers and floral design are my other passions in life. I can confidently say that I am truly the happiest when I am among flowers! For YEARS, I have wondered how I could help others to feel the same therapeutic benefits of working with flowers. And finally, the idea came: Flower Therapy… the perfect (informal) union of therapy and flowers!
Guided by Ashley Starzec, LMFT, Flower Therapy classes allow participants to experience the therapeutic benefits of working with flowers while also incorporating creativity, friendship, fun, and SELF-CARE within a relaxing environment. As a licensed psychotherapist, I define “therapeutic” as anything that helps to change your mindset, mood, or level of inner peace. Believe it or not, working with flowers is one of the most therapeutic “tools” I’ve ever had the benefit of using in my life! Flowers are a universal way to communicate our complex thoughts and feelings; amazingly, flowers express these nonverbal messages through their beautiful colors, alluring fragrances, interesting textures and shapes, and eye-catching arrangement styles. Simply being among flowers can improve your mood, inspire creativity, and increase a sense of inner peace.
