Welcome to my blog! Thank you for stopping by, and thank you for having an interest in being a part of my healing journey. It is my hope that through sharing my story it inspires you to have the courage to live yours.
My name is Kelsey. I am an Art Therapist who has been called to share the trauma I have experienced. To embody my inner courage to start difficult conversations. It is also a part of my mission to share specific healing modalities I practice like Art Therapy, tapping into divine sexuality, exploring spirituality, and much more. So, welcome to this new phase of life that I am embarking on! You are now a piece of my nearly unfiltered healing journey. Join me on this human experience and bear witness to the life stumbles that happen along the way.
This is my first ever blog post. I am not entirely sure if I have even read a blog before. Maybe I have read one in passing not noticing what I was reading. Nevertheless, as I started to create my website and podcast I received an intuitive hit to also write a blog. Well, here I am showing up to do so! I already feel myself in this very moment while typing that my perfectionistic characteristics are creeping in. That I “should” be more prepared, but to hell with preparation I want to just start. I am stepping into new territory, the unknown. I will figure out this whole blog thing along the way.
If you had read the words Art Therapy and thought, “What the heck is that?” Do not worry I will go into further explanation of Art Therapy in the next blog post. For now, I shall exercise my elevator speech. Art Therapy is counseling. I am a therapist, but I utilize art materials in nearly every session. Anybody can participate and you do not have to be good at art. Talking about our pain is difficult. Art is a way to express that pain while guiding us in finding the words that can seem impossible to say. I am grateful to have discovered this profession. It is quite different than traditional counseling which I absolutely love.
Again, thank you for being here. You could even be the first person ever reading this post! How cool is that? I hope you continue to pop in while I share my life. I did not expect sharing my trauma story with strangers to be a foundational aspect of my adult life. Especially while entering the mental health profession. I feel like most therapists do not go there on a public level to maintain a sense of professionalism, but, fuck it. So, stay tuned! It has been quite the process in finding my voice, but I have finally arrived. I am excited for what is to come.
When we see the light in ourselves, we create light in others.
