I am currently 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 have presented at the NASW Social Work in the City annual conference and the NASW Addictions Institute Conference.   

I am always interested in new opportunities to teach, whether in an academic setting, a social service agency, or wellness center

Topics include: 

  • 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.  I am currently on the faculty of another alma mater, NYU, where I teach practice with groups, human behavior, and clinical diagnosis to graduate students of social work.
