About Justine Domagall
Justine grew up in Minnesota with her parents and three younger sisters. Around the age of 13 she began struggling with depression and anxiety. In high school, she developed an eating disorder which required intensive treatment and almost took her life.
Now, years later, she lives a life of recovery that she once thought impossible. She enjoys spending time with her family and expressing herself through her artwork. She runs a small art shop online and has done several commission projects. These include illustrating a devotional booklet used in her church’s faith formation classes and designing a logo for a local ministry. In 2017 she illustrated her first children’s book.
Inspired partly by her own history and partly by a general interest in issues regarding mental health, Justine obtained both a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in counseling psychology. After some discernment, she decided to take an employment position outside of the mental health field. Instead of counseling, she currently uses what she learned through her schooling to form deeper connections with the people she encounters every day. Justine is still passionate about mental health issues and believes that her background of personal experience, past work in the mental health field, and education will serve a future purpose.
