"Early exposure to the mental healthcare system taught me that oppression can be as multi-layered and intersectional as the oppressed, and diagnosis will continue to be an act of oppression if it ignores cultural context, societal phobias, and systemic oppression. For a great number, our mental health is a representation of how we survive our social climate. To see things creatively is to see symptoms as keys to recovery and radical healing. Before I was a therapist, I was a visual artist and writer. So not only have I been able to see things through a critical lens, I learned to appreciate imagery, symbolism and metaphor in life. "

"As a deeply creative person, you feel like life only gives you two options, and neither one is particularly savory. Option 1: Find a way to stay safe, warm and fed while dealing with mounting existential despair and confusion because your inner artist is basically dying. Option 2: Take the path less traveled (i.e., the creative path), while learning how to live life in free fall and become best friends with fear. Who wants fear as their constant companion? That sounds horrible. You feel uniquely cursed. You feel like fortune's fool. I know. Who asks to be born, and who the hell asks to be born as a creative or an artist? "

It is discouraging to navigate a world that doesn’t see you, that misunderstands you or makes you invisible based on your gender, race, sexuality, size, trauma history and a host of other factors. Systemic oppression impacts your mental health as much your history does. It can be intimidating to reach out to a therapist because you want to find someone who really understands you.
