I have had a dream of being a therapist since I was 16 years old. Now, as a middle-aged adult with two grown sons, I am living that dream. I have been involved in the healing arts for over 25 years. My background is in massage therapy, case management for adults with autism/brain injury, yoga therapy, SoulCollage, meditation and astrological counseling.
I received my BA in Contemplative Psychology in 2007 and my MA in Mental Health Counseling with an emphasis in Mindfulness-Based
Transpersonal Psychotherapy in 2019 from Naropa University. I completed the mindfulness-based instructor program in May of 2019. This has provided the skills and education to be able to teach, as adjunct faculty, in the Mindfulness-Based Transpersonal Master's program at Naropa University.
Prior to completing my master's degree, I completed Dana Baptiste's one-thousand-hour yoga therapy program and SoulCollage Facilitator training. Yoga and art are a major part of my own self-care practices. Both of these healing modalities are integrated into my group work that I offer my clients.
Since completing my master's degree, I have continued my path of understanding the deeper layers of trauma and how to support the nervous system with EMDR. This is a powerful tool that supports the transformation of stored traumas. Through this process of transformation there is an ability to regulate your nervous system and to experience a freedom that allows for more choice in your life.
I bring an eclectic lens to my work with clients.
I am passionate about helping humans connect with what is true for them through a deeper awareness and attention to their body. I believe our relationship with others is directly affected by our relationship with ourselves. Re-connecting with ourselves in a deeper way with Maitri (compassion) allows the space for discovery, transformation, and healing. I work with individuals, couples, and groups. I offer a 15 week embodiment group and ongoing embodiment group for women. Please check out my website for more information. I look forward to supporting you on your journey.
Take Beautiful Care of Yourself.
