Graduating with a master’s degree in social work, Grace specializes in the fields of critical incidence stress management, therapeutic storytelling, and story impact coaching.
Through her personal journey into the world of storytelling, Grace came to realize the stories we tell are part of us; a part of who we are as unique individuals, immersed in the reality of our own lives. It was not, as she previously thought, the memorization of someone else’s literary words. The true power of a story lies in the unique expression and artistry of one’s own voice.
Grace supports individuals and groups in breaking free from damaging confines of a story, or the meaning we attach to experiences of our lives. Combining her skills in the areas of social work and storytelling Grace uses folktales and a series of breaking free exercises to support people in moving beyond the limiting stories impacting their lives.
The reality for any of us is . . . Change our stories. Change our lives.
“It was hard to visualize what a storyteller would do in the modern world. Grace’s story of melding her Social Work practice with storytelling was amazing. I only wish someday I can tell stories as well as she can.”
