While I do check for tennis shoes and see if their feet are in good condition and lookContinue reading “Beggers”

I am on TikTok

Sorry ya’ll – I have been distracted but have not changed my focus. You can find me also on TikTok with the kids at https://www.tiktok.com/@homelessinlosangeles?lang=en . Like here, it is mostly about Homeless Issues and sprinkled with random observations. I don’t know that WordPress will allow integration of the videos over here. ….

Seeking Safety

As a therapy group activity, yesterday, we took the worksheet from seeking safety that list all of the coping skills, and turn them into pocket size origami hearts. Although I discussed what seeking safety was and what was written on the paper, I don’t think that everybody understood. I am hoping that in the nextContinue reading “Seeking Safety”

And for some peopleContinue reading “Tiny homes in Arcadia”

Mental Health in Homeless Populations

I kind of thought that my days of doing all night writing and spending Sunday putting together PowerPoints would end at grad school. But here I am. I did buy myself an iPad pro last weekend so I’ve been putting it to good use. All of my illustrations are my own.

Ain’t this the truth

It makes people so angry to think about helping someone else because it’s the right thing to do. Helping somebody else who doesn’t have anything, doesn’t take anything away from your needs.
