TWP Writer and Editor

Teri has worked in a variety of media over the years, from magazines, e-newsletters, and social media to book publishing and video. In her professional travels she has explored a range of subjects, from arts and entertainment to health and wellness. She has contributed both writing and editing to the TWP section of this site.

On a more personal level, Teri is undergoing a very slow withdrawal from a benzodiazepine that she had been prescribed for over two decades. Like many others, when she first started to taper she was given uninformed medical advice that resulted in unnecessary suffering and setbacks. She has since been fortunate enough to receive guidance from lay advisors who have learned from experience and from other people who have paved the way. She hopes the collective wisdom offered through ICI's The Withdrawal Project will help steer others toward a gentler withdrawal journey.
