Healing By Any Means, LLC (HBAM) powers people, projects, and research at the intersection of arts, media, and culture, shifting toxic narratives, transforming trauma, and optimizing community healing potential through healing centered initiatives and narrative change.

Three guiding questions push possible—and us—in
the right direction…

Question 1.

What toxic narratives harm us and our communities?

Question 2.

How do we redefine our relationship to trauma and begin healing?

Question 3.

How can we–and the systems we create–prioritize and invest in our healing?


Shift Toxic Narratives

multimedia stories and compelling campaigns spark critical dialogue around diversity, equity, and inclusion, while uplifting voices and perspectives often underrepresented, ignored, and/or silenced.

Transform Trauma

original research and evaluation propose new frameworks, perspectives, and approaches for developing programs that reimagine healing-focused practice, pedagogy, and engagement, while redefining individual and collective relationships to healing, growing, and thriving through trauma.

Optimize Artist-Led Healing Potential

in-person and virtual events promote collaboration, coalition-building, and connection through arts-based, leadership development centering empathy, vulnerability, and transformational relationship building.


whether it be communications, website development, curriculum development, or new approaches to research and evaluation, we specialize in transformative storytelling and healing by design.
