I am a Story-Informed Therapeutic Mentor, Therapeutic Arts Facilitator, Mental Health Advocate, Consultant, Speaker, Writer, Vocalist, and Artist who has a compassionate heart for those walking through trauma recovery and other difficult life experiences. Trained in Story Informed Trauma Therapy and Therapeutic Mentoring, I offer story work and direct support to clients as well as consultation and collaborative client care with/for mental health professionals. For two decades, I have offered individual and group “Restorative Creativity” workshops, spoken at mental health conferences, recovery groups and other healing events. As a Therapeutic Mixed Media Artist, I offer my healing artwork, creative processes, and lived experience of my own recovery journey in the hopes that others will find the courage to share their own stories and find their voices. My journey has given me an unwavering love of welcoming others into places of acceptance, authenticity, healing, and tender care.
