We travel the road with you, hope for the hopeful and hopeless! We pair authentic listening with the power of hope.

Have you heard of how to master tightrope walking? Do you know tightrope walkers are never actually standing still but constantly making fine tweaks in how they stand, so they can adjust themselves to stay balanced on the tightrope? Chia-Hua Lu is compassionate about being the support for people who desire to identify the little tweaks they can make to stay balanced on the tightrope. Registered as a board-certified Art Therapist (ATR-BC), Chia-Hua believes that creativity and art making help to communicate, explore, and connect within one’s self and with their environment. In a world full of distractions, she has witnessed the power of storytelling as people process their past and ongoing experiences. She strives to create a space that is safe and nonjudgmental for clients as they discover their genuine selves and create goals for being present with their loved ones while living in the moment.
