Healing Deeply

Sexual abuse and trauma were the legacy of my family, and I have been on a mission to overcome the deep injustice perpetrated in my family, and not just that, but the injustices that affect our society. Sexual abuse is the abuse of power, one that renders victims disempowered & helpless, doubtful of themselves, ashamed, or even violently angry.

My body, affected by the chaos and chronic stress response, deteriorated and was ravaged by the Epstein Barre Virus for well over 10 years as a result. I spent that decade in a heavy depression, intimately aware of all the demons and pains that were afflicting me and my family.


Through my own self led art-therapy journey, as well as learning about depth psychology, mindfulness, plant-based food and medicine, and Jesus' Love and Compassion, I am Healing Deeply and Transforming every day. Growing in my own truth, learning the preciousness of this female form and trusting my instinctual self and intimately knowing God again.

My passion for transformation
& healing colors all that I do.

This art arises from my deep psychological and spiritual journey
in pursuit of healing my mind, body, and soul.

The journey has taken me to the ends of myself, forcing me to live carried by the grace of the divine, wreckless in my pursuit of healing truths and real love - for myself, my family, and my community.

I share the accumulated wisdom from 10+ years of trauma recovery and chronic illness,
with the hopes of inspiring even just one more person to keep reaching for hope in the dark places.

Love is the greatest lesson and achievement in this life.

Love for God, Love for Self, and Love for Others.

This work is my living practice of what I teach.

May we all remember what emotional
freedom, resilience, and grace feel like.
