“I’m blessed to have met Adriana as a highly skillful teacher at the Tamalpa Institute. Adriana shares her profound knowledge on how to heal from addiction through expressive arts therapy with great clarity and passion. I am very inspired by the compassionate and soulful way she works with people through one on one or in group-settings. She is walking her talk with integrity, empathy and authenticity. I highly recommend working with her.”
