Heartwork Studio is a labor of love by Monica Phinney, a Registered Drama Therapist. She specializes in using theatre and roleplay alongside all other expressive arts to achieve therapeutic and educational goals. Her past roles include engaging the arts in hospitals, nonprofit organizations, theatres, schools, and on a feature film set in Netflix's Procession.


Monica is especially passionate about healthy relationships, body and sex positivity, LGBTQIA2S+ communities, abuse prevention, nontraditional families, and neurodivergence.


Heartwork is the ultimate dream, to harness the inherent power of creativity for accessible and meaningful wellness opportunities. She wishes to create a nurturing environment, where everyone is an artist.

It's not about a beautiful product.

It's all about the beautiful process.


Monica Phinney, MA, RDT
