My name is Lisa Marie Brodsky Auter

Chicago-born and raised, I have lived in Wisconsin since 2001. With a B.A. in English, an M.F.A. in Poetry, and a lifelong interest in psychology, I am currently training to become a Poetry Therapy Practitioner through the International Academy for Poetry Therapy.

I am the author of two books & have had my poetry published in a wide variety of journals (print & online) since 1998. As a peer support specialist and poetry therapy facilitator, I want to liberate mental health from the stringent definitions our society teaches and instead encourage a connection to ourselves and each other using curiosity and compassion.

I strive for humility, teachability & curiosity in my work and know that the many struggles I've lived through have placed me in a unique position to share my journey of finding, losing & finding (again) my sense of home - not in the sense of a state, country, or building, but rather an ancient, mysterious, untranslatable longing: 



I look forward to seeing you at a writing workshop, hearing your stories in the community or guiding you home with song.
