Profile Information

How might your current work contribute to the sustainability movement?
I'm a psychotherapist and career counselor and the co-editor of Ecotherapy: Healing with Nature in Mind (with Craig Chalquist, Sierra Club Books 2009), which deals with how we heal the human-nature relationship.
In what ways do you personally identify with the Sustainability & Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I see the Transition movement as community ecotherapy -- the eco-healing of communities.
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
I've been a psychotherapist for over 5 years and specialize in helping individuals, couples and families deal with career decisions, financial issues and the transition to a simpler, more sustainable and nature-connected way of life. I'm also a writer, and have just finished co-editing "Ecotherapy: Healing with Nature in Mind" for Sierra Club Books and I edit "Ecotherapy News", the quarterly publication of the International Association for Ecotherapy (Applied Ecopsychology.) I supervise Community and Ecological Fieldwork in the Depth Psychology program at Pacifica Graduate Institute. My husband and I are graduates of the Permaculture Design Course and have a backyard food forest with 102 fruit and nut trees in a 1/3 acre yard. We jointly run the Santa Barbara Organic Garden Club.
Your Personal Website (if you have one)
What aspects of the sustainability movement most interests you?
The idea that by working together we can become a resilient, healthy and nature-connected community.
Your Favorite Books/Websites/Blogs/RSS Feeds for Information about the Sustainability Movement
I believe everyone in the transition movement would benefit from reading "Permaculture" by David Holmgren
