Hi, I’m Libra.
I am a dreamer, an artist, a sensitive, goofy soul. Creative expression is my driving force.
I began my career as an interior designer from the ground up, working for other more seasoned designers, learning the ropes, and absorbing everything I could. In 2013, I opened my own design studio and loved it! My clients taught me so much with each project and I enjoyed being at the helm of my own ship. Then 2020 rolled around and I felt the call to something deeper; I began questioning my purpose.
This mid-life transformation had me reaching deep into the heart of me. My calling, should I choose to accept it, was to go back to school and become a therapist. The plan would be, 1. Finish Bachelor’s degree; 2. get Master’s and do clinical hours; 3. take LMFT exam. A simplified outline, a five year adventure.
Cut To: I accepted the challenge. This Summer 2022, I will be graduating from California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS), with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. I plan to continue at CIIS in the Fall, in the Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology, in the Expressive Arts Therapy program.
On this site I’ll be sharing things related to my school journey at CIIS, such as final papers and projects, interesting articles on psychology, personal growth, dreaming, art & creativity, healing trauma, as well as spiritual topics.
Let’s journey together!
Symbols. Science. Soul. Heart. Dreaming. Healing. Psychology. Art.
