In 2016 Redwing began the 3 year process of learning to become a “certified poetry therapist,” studying with John Fox in his Institute for Poetic Medicine.

It is her intention to use the power of words and images and poem-making, as yet another modality through which self-awareness can lead to healing, self-acceptance and ultimately transformation, for care-givers and care-receivers, personally and professionally.


“Poem-making, when approached as a healing, creative and transformational process rather than with analysis or judgment, provides an opportunity for deep inner healing.
It encourages connection and meaning.”


–John Fox, from website of the Institute For Poetic Medicine
