I currently work in an ACT/DBT-based prison program. I hope to implement Prosocial practices in service to systems change. Personally, I am passionate about issues of climate change and social justice. I'm also a musician, gardener, and green-builder.
I recently teamed up with a neighbor to organize a group of about 20 neighbors who are getting older to explore mutual support in "aging in place." We launched the group with two prosocial facilitation sessions. Now, a year later, the group meets regularly, requiring only minimal facilitation. Participants agree that the group got off to a good start with prosocial framing. I have also presented an introductory talk at our local library that was well-attended. I am particularly skilled/experienced with the ACT matrix, bringing compassionate awareness to individual and group patterns of behavior in the interest of supporting valued endeavors.
