Virginia McIntyre

Virginia McIntyre is an award winning lifelong artist, rendering and performing art in various mediums before she could verbalize in a manner so others could understand. God, butterflies and Vincent Van Gogh have been present, walking with, guiding her in this life as long as she can remember. As a result, Virginia truly comprehends the power of the non -verbal language that is available to us all, that indeed has the potential to communicate the truths embedded in our very souls, through art processes that foster an unleashing of our basic need to be creative and truly results in spiritual insights, healing, and self- expression in a tangible form that allows for re-visiting time and time again. Moreover, Virginia has experienced layered trauma, and by viewing her individual glass as not just half-full, but as continually refillable, she has refused to accept that she is a victim nor survivor, but an individual here to thrive in achieving God’s work, and facilitate paths for others to manifest multi-dimensional true health, happiness, abundance, and fulfillment that can be reached by going inward to tap into the Cosmic Consciousness within us all that knows only good. Self- transformation, spiritual and personal development and God’s love have been her on the bow where she has set her sails for much of her life.

Virginia is a trained educator; credentialed and licensed counselor, with a BS in education, MS in Creativity and Change Leadership, earned post graduate work in counseling and addictions, a decorated veteran of the United States Air Force, formally trained in art therapy using all arts processes for expression in therapeutic treatments, spiritual development, rich history of encouraging self-discovery and serving others in this capacity for transformation and healing. Virginia is trained in the Science of Happiness by the University of California at Berkeley which provides her with credentials her to teach intellectual and practical tools for nurturing individual happiness.
