Transparent access to therapeutic artistry and healing for marginalized communities


I've launched the official hub of everything I'm trying to build, which connects Lavender Lime Literary, Bumpy Lime Ceramics, and all of the other therapeutic access to healing I am building from the ground up.  This site will be the core hub of the art therapy program.  Pea Flower Tea will continue to grow and be inclusive, transparent, and educational.  We're making sure that everyone and I mean EVERYONE, has access to healing after trauma and abuse, regardless of economic disparity.  Art and healing should ALWAYS be accessible.

We're making sure that everyone has access to healing.

With this in mind, I'm working towards building an inclusive art therapy program that will work alongside traditional therapeutic models, helping to fill the gaps that marginalized communities so frequently fall through in our medical systems.  To ensure this program is serving marginalized communities to the highest standard, I'm expanding my education beyond the classroom. I am obtaining a certification from AASECT, The American Association of Sexual Educators, Counselors, and Therapists.  I am taking courses with the Diversity and Resiliency Institue of El Passo to ensure my approach is always lifting the communities I exist within, such as the queer community, and the communities I strive to be an ally to, such as BIPOC communities.

Art and healing should always be accessible.

I'll continue to fight for equality, continuous access, and the pure defiance of resilience after abuse. We're among these communities most hurt by the disparities in our social systems, and this program will grow with our communities.  We're taking our healing journeys into our own hands. We're refusing to fall through the cracks or allow the systemic disparity built into our support systems to dictate our access to recovery after sexual violence and abuse.  We're learning, growing, and healing together.

This is where it begins.  This is Pea Flower Tea.  This is us, stronger.
