As a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Board Certified Art Therapist and Registered Yoga Teacher and Certified Prenatal Yoga Teacher in Illinois and California, I founded Sage Willow to provide a holistic experience through therapeutic services-- promoting individual wellness through the use of expressive arts, cognitive-behavioral techniques, yoga and mindfulness practices to facilitate restoration and life satisfaction for children, adolescents and adults.  Sage Willow offers an array of opportunities that include individual counseling, group therapy, expressive art workshops, art parties, event hosting as well as professional training.

My passion for the arts inspired the creation of, where I share my handcrafted designs -- including crochet, paintings, drawings, photography, apparelcraftsdécor and accessories.

Please take a look through the portfolio of my work.  Soon I will be launching Jessica Lynn Creations Store-- where items will be easily available for online purchase!  Check out the gallery now to get a sneak peak of available designs and ones that have already found happy homes.  Keep your eyes peeled for huge promotions in your inbox!  This lifelong crafting hobby was inspired by nature and infused with heartfelt memories.  Initially intended to give a personal touch to gifts for family and friends, I am excited to take my passion for art to another level.  Discover unique mixed media art with rich, colorful and expressive detail in addition to warmth and comfort.  Soon, you will find what you desire of the functional, fashionable and decorative!

Current, featured services include the Girls Art Therapy Group on Monday evenings in Evanston.  In addition, a Mommy Baby/Child Meet-up Yoga Group is being offered in Evanston.  

Two recent successful events, including the Jung at Art professional training and art experimentation workshop, as well as participation in the Evanston Open Studios art and gallery walk, each took place recently.  It was an honor to affiliate with such wonderful community programs!  These incredible experiences have sparked my interest in expanding my knowledge and continuing to provide therapeutic and educational services in addition to handmade art.

Stay tuned for more goodness currently in the works-- including downloadable mental health 'cheat sheets', a therapeutic game board for skill development and art exploration, nutritional considerations and aromatherapy in counseling and much more!  Jessica Lynn Creations will soon release new completed crochet designs and oil paintings.

I will also be updating blog content frequently-- revealing personal passions, wellness tips, guilty pleasures, therapeutic tools, introspections and art journeys.

It is with sincere pleasure that I launch the new and improved websites, Sage Willow and Jessica Lynn Creations.

A special thanks to Modal Media Group for the building of my websites!

Breathe.  Imagine.  Create.  Grow.  Smile.

With Love,
