classes and workshops

For over a decade, I have been creating and teaching writing curricula designed to evoke reflection, mindfulness, creativity, healing, personal leadership, empowerment, inspiration, and transformation for all types, ages, cultures, and inclinations of people and organizations. I do this based on over 20 years of personal writing experience, an extensive review of the research and literature on the mental, emotional, social, behavioral, and spiritual benefits of writing about our lives, and research I designed and conducted exploring the effects of writing on stress, depression, and anxiety with urban teenage mothers.

I work with adolescents and adults struggling with anxiety, depression, poverty, homelessness, addiction, as well as aspiring youth writers, social service and mental health professionals, undergraduates, educators, parents, youth workers, and everyday people in my community of north Minneapolis.

I am a humanist who believes deeply in the power of our stories. My mission is, through the art of writing, to launch people into their highest possibilities, inspiring them to be who they are meant to be and give the gifts they are meant to give this world.

I love what I do.
