“What are the words you do not yet have? What do you need to say?… There are so many silences to be broken.” Audre Lorde
I hope this experiment in creativity, with a dash of humor, personal story and hopeful insight, will cultivate courage in the form of relatability. Minding the gap between my head and my heart by using my voice, I invite you to get curious with me.
I am a licensed professional counselor in private practice. My goal is to dabble with the concept of taking insights from life stories to create a relatable and therapeutic experience for the reader. Written as a practice of embracing vulnerability, and “walking my talk” so to speak, these stories are meant to be both personal and professional. Knowing life is messy and beautiful whether sitting in the therapist chair or client couch, growth and healing can occur when we voice our stories to forge human connection.
“We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.” – Anaïs Nin
