Noah Cochran, MSW

Noah holds a BA in psychology and education studies from Bowdoin College and a master’s degree in social work from Smith College’s School for Social Work. Their experience as a student on an IHP program in 2011–2012 planted the seeds of Noah’s passion for embodied community learning and justice work. Across the expanse of their roles as a facilitator, a racial justice organizer, a queer and gender competency educator, and a clinical social worker, Noah has been guided by a deep belief in the healing and transformative power of relationships, community, and solidarity across struggles for liberation. For the last six years, Noah has primarily fostered relationships with young folks living at the intersections of oppression, most recently as a therapist for high school students in the Bay Area. They believe in playfulness, ritual, and being with big questions about how to be in right relationship to each other and our world.
