Art is also useful in helping trauma survivors heal the wounds in their souls (my "grown-up" passion). I am a counselor specializing in helping survivors of various trauma - some art that will be offered will be from clients who are learning to use their gifts of creativity to express the beauty and strength of who they truly are! The proceeds of the artwork sold here helps trauma survivors continue in their healing journey. Find out more at www/mungadze/net.
