Helping cultivate positive and meaningful relationships to oneself and others.
Relationships... How fascinating that the very thing that can bring so much happiness and joy to our lives can also be the source of so much discomfort and confusion?
My passion is to help people heal from their old relational wounds, learn how to transcend habitual patterns that are no longer working, and to cultivate the kinds of relationships that bring joy and positive growth. As a counselor, I blend mindfulness, embodiment practices, and neuroscience to promote wellness.
My educational background includes...
...receiving a Bachelor's Degree in Somatic Psychology and a Master’s Degree in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology from Naropa University - a mindfulness-based university - in Boulder, CO. Since that time, I have received additional training in Acceptance and Committment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), as well as becoming certified in Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy (PACT).
