Mendcounseling focuses on exactly what its name represents. To mend is to put back together, piece together, or to restore.

"The wound is the place where the light enters you."
The wisdom of an old Japanese practice called Kintsugi is inspiring and motivating in the process of healing. Kintsugi is an art form where breaks and repairs are part of an objects history.
