About the Event

This book club will focus on many issues women in mid-life encounter like empty nesting, self-esteem, career change, relationships, body image, and more! We will read a new book each month and meet to discuss. 

What's different about this club is we will be incorporating an art therapy exercise correlating with the book and also discuss coping mechanisms you can implement into your life! So if you're looking for a different kind of book club and have made it your New Year's resolution to work on yourself, then this is the perfect fit for you!

This month:

We will meet and discuss our first book "Set Boundaries, Find Peace: a guide to reclaiming yourself" by Nedra Glover Tawwab

About the host, Jean Taras

I’m an art therapist who's been passionate about art since I was a little girl drawing on IBM paper at the dining room table with my brother. Making art has always been a source of comfort for me, and when it came time to choose a career path, I knew art would be in my future somehow.

I attended the Academy of Art University in San Francisco and majored in Fine Arts/Art Education, but I realized that teaching wasn't my true calling. I had to change my trajectory and enrolled in Edinboro University where I received my master's in Art Therapy/Clinical Mental health.

I work with women of all ages, using art therapy to guide them through life and all of its challenges. I believe that artmaking is emotion-based and that there are reasons behind each piece of art created. And when my clients have those “ah-ha” moments - I know what I believe in is working!

I've seen the positive results of art therapy when working with clients facing an array of struggles. Working with my clients is an honor, and I learn so much from them every day.
