What is Improv?

As much as we might hope to script our lives, we all know: there is no script, we’re all making it up as we go along. But some people definitely make it up better than others. They are more honest, more engaged, more confident.

How did they get there?

Improv comedy.

OK, they didn’t all take an improv class but if they did that’s what they would have practiced and learned.

And we all—C-Suiters, mental health workers, nonprofit administrators, creatives, academics, bankers, teachers, introverts, extroverts—can learn how to apply the tools of improv comedy to cultivate deeper personal engagement, more confidence, more spontaneity, more trust, and more creativity in everyday life.

As a licensed social worker, I'm uniquely qualified to help people learn how to listen to their inner critic but not be ruled by her, to listen deeply to each other, to problem solve, build interpersonal skills, foster effective communication, connect more effectively to each other (whether that’s to management or to an audience, feel infinitely creative.
