I have worked in both traditional and non-traditional mental health organizations professionally and personally. Both have their place in healing when used appropriately and can be used together. For complex issues, addressing them in multiple modalities can create profound results.
The work that I did with Artemisia in the weeks after my nephew’s murder was deep, powerful, and profound. It helped me find a shred of peace when my world was shattered. It resonated in my body in a place that talk therapy was unable to reach at the time.
