Monday Modalities

I love when talented actors use their voice to spread awareness about stuttering.  As a mental health clinician and community organizer – and now an Assistant Professor in Social Work – I can confidently and convincingly share that one of the most powerful forms of healing is “coming out” with your stuttering.  The bigger the platform, the bigger the “pow!”

  1. Liz,

    What a wonderful find. I adore the part when she said “trick your brain, but with people’s names you can’t trick.” She does such a beautiful expression of the stuttering experience.
