Restorative Narrative

“If you want to know me, then you must know my story, my story defines who I am. And if I want to know myself, to gain insight into the meaning of my own life, then I, too, must come to know my own story. I must come to see in all its particulars the narrative of the self – the personal myth – that I have tacitly, even unconsciously, composed over the course of my life. It is a story I continue to revise and tell myself (and sometimes to others) as I go on living” (Vinogradova et al., 2011, p.173).

Restorative narrative is a therapeutic approach that allows individuals to be and to embrace being the expert in their own lives. I believe that the personal stories people develop and carry throughout their lives are critical for healing. I guide individuals through the construct of sharing their stories, either through writing or graphic text.

Due to the rapidly evolving outbreak of coronavirus (COVID19) and safety restrictions, I will not be conducting activities at this time.
