Inspirations

"...we have to look into ourselves, know who we are, know what we believe in, what it is we want, and we have to connect with the fierceness... there is always a necessity for compassion, loving, kindness, praise... but also we have to kindle the fire of fierceness. We need to understand the intense happiness, the intense joy of being in a just battle."

Alice Walker

Testimonials

Chantale, you are so warm and caring that everyone feels completely comfortable sharing with you. You are non-judgmental, understanding, and know when to push and when to back down. You are amazing! We love you! I think that about says it. You truly are an extraordinary person who helps bring out the best in others. I am extremely grateful for this experience. I can't imagine how I would have gotten through without it. It is through your guidance that I know and believe in myself as an artist. It is through the skills, strategies, books, that you have taught/given me that even though I am nervous for my future, I can't wait to explore!
