Bio

BTS made you do it. That’s right, you’re looking for a therapist. You thought listening to their music wholeheartedly, crafting fanart, and connecting with Army would be enough to cure your gnawing question of “do I belong?”. Instinctively, you feel therapy with someone unbiased could help and even have offered this advice to others but you get caught up in thinking you’re too privileged to want more in your life. After all, you know people have it worse than you. Heck, your parents had it way worse than you.

When you are swept up by emotions, feeling truly heard and understood by others is a foreign experience to you. You are used to people telling you what they think you should do, yet secretly your heart is aching for someone to just get it.

Together, we will use art therapy to explore how to love yourself as you are. No formal art training is necessary, just a willingness to create. Let’s make a door in your heart, 24/7 booking available on my website.
