Artist, Facilitator, Therapist

The three strands of my work life are therapist, teacher, and artist. Nowadays these strands are intrinsically interwoven with each other. In all the settings and modalities in which I engage, and with the many populations with whom I interact, I draw upon my experience in creative process, personal development, spiritual education, healing, and teaching. All my work is held by the matrix of those in depth explorations and their synergy is found in anything I do.

When I teach improvisation it is informed by ecology, somatics, therapeutic process and my spiritual practice. When I practice psychotherapy, it is influenced by creative arts, theatre research, phenomenology, somatics, improvisation and is grounded in embodied earth. When I make performances they are sourced in the investigations and themes that emerged from my teaching and personal process and my fascination with nature, including human nature.
