Writing, visual arts, and counseling are all part of an integrated whole in my life. I believe we heal through shared personal expression of stories and feelings. My counseling work supports the healing of others while my writing and art are part of my my own self-care and desire to heal our community. I live in gentle awe at the beauty and depth of the world and people around me, and continue to awkwardly explore how to be fully human. Because the world seems to compartmentalize writing, art, and counseling, I have created a separate page for each.
