I am a true believer in the change process. Thirty years ago I hit the brick wall of codependency and addiction ground my life to a halt. Luckily, I found the right people to guide me through the recovery process that continues to this day. I’m committed to a never-ending process of growth and change.
Along the way, I discovered psychodrama, a process of exploring issues through guided action. Psychodrama is lively, dynamic, energizing, and empowering. Group members experience profound shifts in insights, feelings, and behavior that are more life-changing and durable than talk therapy alone. Best of all, group members form a “forever-bond” that continues long after group comes to an end.
In 2012 I developed Recovery in Motion; an upbeat experiential program that includes psychodrama, expressive arts, music, community-building activities, and group process. It is designed to “switch on” the central nervous system’s positive response and allow members to discover core strengths and our innate wisdom.
Right next to psychodrama is my other love: Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB). This exciting field tells us our brain can be rewired throughout the lifespan and that human brains work best in harmonious relationships with other human brains. It ties in well with my years of work in the trauma field – in rape crisis, women’s prison, and with underserved populations. I believe healing and transformation are natural processes that occur when we are in a safe, therapeutic environment.
I got wildly excited when I discovered Luna Living. It is thrilling to see a fresh approach in the field of addiction, particularly something that is centric to the human brain and so nourishing to the human spirit. I’m proud to be part of this team and welcome you with all my heart.
