I was impressed by

the expansive way in which Arlyn conceptualized

the project. 

Her ingenuity,

curiosity and adeptness with language inspired

me to interact with students in new ways.

Professional development workshops are offered for teachers, camp counselors, clergy, mental health professionals and others in helping fields that would like to incorporate expressive writing in their service work. Self-care expressive writing workshops are also offered to support the professional development of those who work in helping fields. I tailor each workshop to the particular interests and goals of the professionals I work with.
