It's Official: I am now a Registered Drama Therapist

This is an accomplishment that has been a long time coming, and I'm very excited and proud to share that I have received my official credential as a Registered Drama Therapist through the North American Drama Therapy Association, the international organization which governs our field. 

It takes years of work, training, and practice to earn this professional credential, and I hope it reflects both my experience with and love for drama as a healing modality. 

I look forward to continuing to write about, speak about, and provide drama therapy services here in Nashville. 

Here's to continued growth and learning, whatever your passion is!

UPDATE (6/9/2017): I am also now listed on the NADTA's website.

Advice of the Day: Transitions

Tolerating times of transition can bring up all your ugly demons, bad habits, and fear responses. You can't rush through the transition, and you know in hindsight you will probably appreciate its gifts. If you're struggling today, use your power of choice to be kind to yourself, give gratitude and have faith in the process at hand. Give it up to the bigger forces at play, however you meaningfully conceive of them (God, universe, Santa, whatever), get therapy support, or get your sweat or meditation on, and know in your gut that something worthwhile is at work. It's corny but true: this too shall pass. We don't always know what's "right" or "best" until after the fact, so just be where you are. #AdviceoftheDay #LifeTransitions
