I am on the faculty of NYU's Silver School of Social Work, and have served on the faculty of The New School and the Finger Lakes School of Massage.
I currently teach graduate courses in clinical practice, group therapy, human behavior, and clinical diagnosis.
I have presented my work at the NASW Social Work in the City annual conference and the NASW Addictions Institute Conference and have assisted presenters at the American Dance Therapy Association’s annual conference, as well at NYU’s Creative Arts and Social Work conference.
I am always interested in new opportunities to teach or present, whether in an academic setting, a social service agency, or wellness center.
Bringing the body into trauma-informed practice
Integrating yoga and mindfulness into clinical settings
Expressive and dance/movement therapy skills for therapists
My passion for learning informs my teaching. I am honored to have been able to return to teach at many of the institutions that have trained me.
At The New School, I lead undergraduates though an original course I designed entitled “Creating Community in the City: A five-borough exploration in belonging.” Here, students were encouraged to look at the intersection of identity, connection and place.
After graduating from the Finger Lakes School of Massage in Ithaca, I taught Shiatsu in the part-time massage therapy program at the Mt. Kisco campus.
I have continued to help train bodyworkers and serve as a teaching assistant for cranial sacral therapists at the Upledger Institute.
