While I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, it is important to note that I do not conduct any aspect of the Ragdoll Project in particular the workshops as a psychologist or therapist clinical or otherwise. Instead I share this process as an artist and a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. I believe that my story is something that others can benefit from just as I benefit from the stories of others who’ve dealt with violence upon their bodies, within their families, and/or communities. The Ragdoll Workshops do not aim to represent a set of universal experiences and does not pretend to offer a solution to said experiences but simply an opportunity to use art, within the healing process, as it helped support my personal healing in conjunction with individual therapy and maintaining a spiritual practice and community. This workshop may trigger some emotions, memories, or physical reactions and because each person is ultimately responsible for their continued healing, I encourage participants continue on their journeys by knowing and using all the resources available to them. At the end of each workshop, as appropriate, I provide a customized list of resources in the area as well as tips for how to navigate post-workshop challenges.
