Mokuhanga is a method of Traditional Japanese woodblock printmaking. It uses non-toxic, water-based inks combined with Japanese nori starch paste. Images are printed by hand using a baren, one color at a time.




Mental health therapy is like visiting the inner home of clients. During sessions, I visit clients’ inner homes to witness the rain inside of their homes. I often think of the act of “holding space for clients” as holding an umbrella so that clients have time to dry off from the rain.


Some rain water inside of their homes comes from outside. When there are wars, violence, disasters, and murders in the world, the rain from these events impact who they are and how they feel. And we as therapists also are impacted by this rain in the world--because we are all human beings.


One of the power of art is to make what we can't see visible. Much of what we therapists do is invisible. If you are a therapist and seeing this, thank you for all you do—visible or invisible— for your clients and others. If you feel fatigued at the end of the day, it may be because you have been holding an umbrella all day.

I hope you get to rest your arms and put down the umbrella from time to time.
