I love the energy at Naropa and I appreciate the passion and creativity the students bring to the classroom. Being able to work with Naropa students keeps me excited about the future of counseling and therapy.
The DSM 5!
It used to bother me because it seemed to point out the ways in which Naropa is different from other programs. Now I enjoy hearing it precisely because it highlights the uniqueness of Naropa.
I will be working with Wonderbound, a Denver based dance company to developing an outreach program that will build community through the exchange of movement, dance and creative expression.
