Workshops & Training

I believe in the power of deep group work in communities to navigate interpersonal and systemic conflict. I teach unique perspectives around sexual trauma, gender-based violence and art-based healing modalities at various institutions across the world including St. Xavier’s College, Mumbai, the University of Michigan, the University of Idaho, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and more.
