I am a poet, educator and experienced therapist. I am also the mother of a child living with a rare autoimmune disease. I live my professional life at the intersection of art, healing and education.
I am a poet and essayist. My essays and blog posts focus on health issues related to chronic illness, coping skills for families, and resilience. I am also curious about the intersection of writing, healing and the brain and follow research in this area.
Teaching & Consulting
I lead workshops for teens, parents and medical professionals on topics including coping with children living with chronic illness, healing and grief.
My poetry spans a range of ideas. My recent chapbook, The Body Lives Its Undoing, is a compilation of poetry and visual art exploring various aspects of autoimmune diseases.
