Adriana specializes in addiction/recovery, and has developed a specific body of work offering creative healing opportunities for people in recovery from all forms of addiction. She has shared this area of expertise at a variety of institutions including National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse, Marin Outpatient Services and Epiphany Center for Women and Children. Most recently, she was a group facilitator at La Ventana Eating Disorder Program where she used movement and art to support recovery. Currently, Adriana has created "When the Fall Comes," a poetry and performance project that has culminated in a film based on her own life story encountering intimate grief and loss. This grief project illustrates the Life/Art Process, life informing our art and art informing our life for personal and collective healing. Adriana continues to research both experientially and didactically the ways that the arts and a body-based orientation can foster healthy living. Adriana brings an abundance of creative resources and a compassionate nature to her work.
