In 2013, I started Lyrical Therapy University (LTU) on the belief that healing and personal development can be done through artistic exploration and performance. Hundreds of sessions later, I’m able to say that I’ve taught and coached in classrooms from grade school to grad school, stages of corporate conferences to rehabilitation centers . LTU allows participants of all walks of life and skill levels to gain confidence in their writing and speaking capabilities, while understanding that critical thinking and discourse can be artistic acts themselves.

Lyrical Therapy University (LTU) utilizes a workshop format to help students to understand poetry, current issues, and aid students in gaining confidence in their writing and performance.
