On detox and thanks

Found this on my desk a couple weeks ago from a client at the #detox recovery center. So much talent in one little frame. The client was a special individual – even though he struggled to see it. Addiction doesn’t discriminate. And it continually amazes me the power of human connection and fortitude even when the body is going through hell. 🌹

On a podcast recommendation

This. For anyone who is confused about #dramatherapy, THIS is in fact what drama therapy can do. Reply All’s podcast episode #129 doesn’t explicitly describe drama therapy as led by a drama therapist, but the goals and outcomes described in this piece are all there.

Drama therapy utilizes the same power of dramatic play, the same narrative restorying to facilitate healing from traumatic loss, and the same transformation found from imaginary projective techniques. Of course, Autumn, the amazing women interviewed in the piece, navigates her traumatic loss alone, replacing the structure a #dramatherapist could have provided with the structure/container of a computer game.

I encourage anyone interested in #creativeartstherapy, #playtherapy, and #narrativetherapy to listen to this podcast episode! It’s powerful and beautiful. Thank you @replyall and @gimletmedia for allowing us to witness this transformational story.
If you are looking for a drama therapist to work with in Los Angeles, please DM me. Phone consultations are always complimentary, and I’d love to see if we’d be the right fit. 📞📱:646-272-4971

On boundaries

I love and value this well-timed reminder 🥰🌹🌺 Holidays are about sharing as much – or as little – as you would like to share. You are enough, rough-edges and all!

Talking always helps and is highly encouraged, but only if you are up to it and in the mindset to share. Don’t let anyone pressure you into anything that you’re not able to do just yet. .

On forgiveness

One of my favorite poets with some realness this morning. 🧡 Learn to forgive ourselves and others. The human way.
