Speak to Understand is a wellness organization based on my belief that in sharing our narratives, and providing witness to the narratives of others, we form deep connections to ourselves and to one another. It is through those connections we experience growth, healing and a feeling of belonging. Through my work I have come to believe that feelings of isolation, of not being seen, of not being heard, of not being valued, are the source of some our deepest wounds.

When we think only of the ways in which we are alone, separated from one another, we despair.

This website is not only be devoted to sharing issues in mental health and wellness, but also serves as a place to practice authenticity and connection – and to explore the barriers we create to both.

Speak. Listen. Grow.
