I’m a clinical social worker on a mission to observe and cultivate connections between our bodies and minds, between the individual and community, and between art, psychology, and sociology.
I’m interested in how people work together, in how to use mind-body approaches to healing, and in the use of creative practices as tools for personal and social change.
Currently, my work takes these forms:
- I work with individuals and families who experience complex trauma.
- I study collaboration, exploring how and why people work together.
- I interview people and write about the creative process.
- I practice and teach yoga.
I’m trained and experienced in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Systems Therapy adapted for refugees, and Attachment Self-Regulation and Competency.
I have over ten years of experience in the nonprofit sector, specializing in development, project management, and strategic planning.
In my own creative practices I draw inspiration from the knowledge and process of writers, herbalists, researchers, businesswomen, astrologists, dancers, and printmakers.
I dream of collecting research and experiences about healing; facilitating conversations about ritual, routine, and change; and contributing to the education of new social workers.
Be in touch! I love to talk about the body, mental health, creativity, and routines.
