I live in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I'm a social worker
My Satir experience/work
Satir has helped me create better relationships with everyone in my life. My Satir journey began in graduate school at the University of South Florida when I watched my first Satir video, I knew this was the model I wanted to learn about. During this time I met Jane Gerber who inspired me to learn as much as possible about Satir's work. My jouney took me to North Carolina where I met Jean McLendon, my Satir teacher. I'm appreciate of finding a wonderful teacher early in my social work career. Satir is woven into all parts of my life. I've had the opportunity of traveling to Azerbaijan, Tajikistan, China and Hong Kong for trainings. I've learned so much from the welcoming people in these Satir communities. After each trip, I've been inspired to strengthen Satir communities in my area.
My interests/hopes and wishes.
i hope to strengthen and expand the Satir community on the East Coast of the United States. My wishing wand is reaching out to anyone interested in creating a Satir community. So if you're on the East Coast, I'd like to hear from you. Perhaps together we can build a community for connection and learning.
