Why Kintsukuroi?

Kintsukuroi (pronounced phonetically “kin-tsu-ku-roi”) is a Japanese word that means “golden repair”.  Kintsukuroi is the art of mending broken objects with gold.  It embraces breakage as part of an object’s history making it more beautiful in its imperfection.  These pieces become stronger, more beautiful, and more valuable for having been broken.

Kintsukuroi embraces the symbolism of the therapeutic process.  As you work with a skilled therapist you will feel seen and heard as you engage in understanding how your unique story, often entailing both beauty and shatter, impacts the way you are responding to the world around you.  Taking time to explore below the surface level emotions and behaviors, you will begin to identify deeper underlying heart felt beliefs about self and others.  As you engage in this space, you will begin to identify where you may be invited to challenge old patterns that may be keeping you from experiencing life in its fullness.  As light is shed into darkness and hope into brokenness, your journey continues towards wholeness, integration, and restoration which is the essence of this sacred “golden repair”.

Are you struggling to find your footing in the current setting of your story?

Life is lived in stories. Some stories are full of radiant beauty and others of shattering brokenness. Often these stories etch beauty and brokenness together across every curve and line of our lives. They crack the core of our being and across our closest relationships. Kintsukuroi is the art of carefully repairing broken pieces with gold, restoring them to wholeness by adding both beauty and strength, while honoring the magnitude of the shattering. At Kintsukuroi Counseling, we create space for individuals and couples seeking emotional and relational healing to integrate wholeness and authenticity into one radiantly beautiful story.
