I am the author and artist of Journey into the Dark and the Light, featuring poems and pictures telling my journey through depression and into wellness.

Contact me about my participation in your:

  • Author Talks, including Book Signings
  • Book Clubs
  • Presentations
  • Workshops
  • School Visits
  • Conferences
  • Mental Health Forums
  • Panel Discussions

My presentations and workshops focus on the use of art and poetry as forms of personal healing, promoting self-esteem and empowerment through personal awareness:

  • incorporating the mental health strategies I found useful during my journey from depression to wellness,  and
  • backed up by my professional studies and almost thirty years of experience, in my career as a teacher.

Every occasion has individual requirements. Please contact me to discuss your situation, and how I can make my contribution the best it can be for you and your target audience.
