Therapeutic Mentoring

Healing Expressions has come along side survivors of difficult life experiences to support their recovery process for over a decade . As a survivor who deeply engaged in a long term recovery process from early childhood trauma, and a therapeutic professional for over ten years, Lani is deeply passionate about offering adjunctive support while women bravely pursue the healing journey with their primary counselor.

Therapeutic Mentoring provides one-on-one support and guidance as clients move through the healing process. These sessions may include:

-Gentle listening, suggestions, questions and challenges, encouragement and connection.

-Mentoring and guidance through the unique challenges of engaging in a recovery process.

-Creative techniques to deepen and strengthen the therapeutic relationship.

-Self Care/Soul Care exercises and collaboration to develop a personalized self-care ritual.

-Expressive Arts tools for developing safe containment of difficult emotions and traumatic affect.

-Strategies for moving through "stuck" places and taking the next steps of personal growth in your counseling process. 

-Option to explore any of the Restorative Creativity Sessions in a slower-paced format

-Processing and continued exploration of the Therapeutic Collage, Mosaic Soul Art Journaling and/or mixed media work that clients may have begun in previous Restorative Creativity Sessions.

-Safe place to explore other therapeutic art-based work clients are currently creating in their life story work or recovery journey.

-For In-Studio clients, access to a variety of mixed media art supplies for clients use during session for guided creative healing exercises and reflection.

-For On-line ZOOM format clients, emailing of suggested supplies and materials lists for use during session.


Clients are encouraged to discuss their desire for this additional support with their therapist/counselor prior to registration to determine if Therapeutic Mentoring would be beneficial and supportive of their process. Working with expressive arts tools can be internally stimulating so your provider may also assist you in determining if the timing is right for participation. For providers with questions or clients who would like their provider to communicate with Lani in any manner, please sign a Release of Information form through your provider.
