Referring Clients

If you are a mental healthcare professional who understands the value of using the arts with clients, but it is not part of your skillset, referring clients to Mo for a Depth Imagery Session can be a useful approach.

Just as you might deepen your work with a client by referring them to an expert in nutrition or EMDR, having your client work with Mo can improve your work together.

The process Mo initiates with your client results in a series of images on paper, creating a tangible entry point into your client’s personal metaphors and imagery. You and your client can refer to the images and the insight they uncovered, gleaning the many benefits of expressive arts work, without needing to facilitate an expressive arts process yourself. Practitioners who do have training in the expressive arts can use the images as a jumping-off point for continued creative exploration.

 It can be powerful for the therapist and client to have physical images to collectively reference, and even to reimagine or edit as part of their work together. The client’s new insights and strengthened self-trust from their session with Mo can expedite healing and growth in therapy, as well as pinpoint opportunities for growth or information related to known challenges. 

Mo uses an expressive arts process that includes bilateral movement, allowing for sensory integration and somatic attunement with the client. Clients do not create art during their session, so this is a good fit even for those who are reluctant to engage in art making but who might be open to energy work or practices like tarot. And this work can support clients in becoming more comfortable engaging in art making and engaging with their personal imagery.

Through this process, Mo creates imagery that serves as a witness and mirror for the client, revealing patterns and themes, while strengthening the client’s connection to their own inner guidance. The process of viewing and reflecting on the images together builds self-trust, intuition, and skills for accessing and integrating personal depth imagery. With the Person-Centered Approach as a foundation for engaging with clients, Mo holds a space of congruence, positive regard, and empathy in which it is safe for the client to make discoveries and shifts.

If you are a mental healthcare professional with a client who struggles with any of these issues, consider referring them to Mo for a depth imagery session.
