0.35: Willow + The Use of Magic

In today's episode we have a more in-depth conversation with Natalie Muskin-Press, taking a deeper look at Willow’s arc with her use of magic in this season. Natalie is a Licensed Clinical Addictions Counselor who has been working in Higher Education for the last 10 years. Prior to that she spent 3 years working in the community providing Intensive OutPatient Treatment to adults and adolescents and running a residential Recovery Home for women. Her work centers on harm reduction with a focus on prevention, intervention, and education.

This episode will contain spoilers through the end of Season 7 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and will also include conversations on themes of substance use, the prison industrial complex, sex work, and mental health.
