Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.
— Leonard Cohen

Her wide ranging interests, and the many different things she has done in life attest to this constant excitement about learning more. From South Asian Studies to Photography, Chaplaincy to Biography and Social Art, Faith has engaged in many different pursuits within and beyond the world of psychotherapy.
