In a way, it’s pretty simple. True Colors is a center for Expressive Arts events, groups and workshops. I hope to attract art therapists, music therapists and others who are qualified to use arts to foster insight, self-expression, community building and healing.
At the same time, it is not so simple. Because my forte is directing psychodrama.
ecause I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and I know the principles of psychological health, it's easy to convince myself that I'm actually living them. And often I do.
Then are the other times. The times when I react bigger than the situation really warrants. A cognitive behavioral therapist could point out that I'm "catastrophizing" and I couldn't agree more. Yet still. Knowing that doesn’t necessarily help.
In fact, our intellect can actually get in the way of healing.
