That recovery process inspired me to found and worked with several community organizations, to promote mental health alternatives and help others.
Today I teach what I have learned and use my experience to help guide people to their own discoveries of healing, as a counselor, through my writing, leading trainings, and consulting with organizations.
I am passionate about mental diversity and welcoming different states of consciousness as vital parts of the human community.

My work and learning arose from my own experiences of recovery from madness, and today I am passionate about new visions of mind and what it means to be human.
I hold a Diploma and Masters Degree in Process Work from the Process Work Institute, and my study over the years has included the Integral Counseling program at the California Institute of Integral Studies, training with Jaakko Seikkula and colleagues in Open Dialogue at the Institute for Dialogic Practice, the WRAP facilitators’ training, and certification in NADA protocol auricular acupuncture at Lincoln Recovery in New York City.
My exploration led me to study Process Work and earn a Diploma in this Jungian and systems based approach to human experience, as well as studying Open Dialogue with Jaakko Seikkula and colleagues.
I am actively involved in creating a new vision of mental health based on understanding the meaningfulness of what gets labeled as psychosis and madness.
