I began teaching at Antioch University Seattle in 2012. I am very passionate about learning through connection and community. Teaching at AUS as a marriage and family art therapist allows me to feed that passion and creates an opportunity for me to share what I have learned as a clinician, come along side and teach from an experiential perspective, learn from the wide range of talented students that makes up our community of adult learners and embrace the gift of personal and professional growth and transformation.
