As a therapist and fellow journeyer, my style is down-to-earth, compassionate, supportive, caring, and empowering. I respect the essence of the path (and pace) that is right for you whether that be traditional therapy, art therapy, EMDR, ritual, empowered journeying, or mindfulness. I create a safe and accepting environment for you to be with your vulnerability, claim your strength and wisdom, and explore options. I truly believe that each of us holds within the inherent wisdom to heal towards wholeness. Yet why do we struggle in our lives? I believe it is because this wisdom has been covered up by past traumas and hurts, and beliefs we formed about ourselves that are simply not true. We have lost our way as we have separated from our intrinsic wisdom. There are a number of reasons people choose to work with me. They include identity exploration, feeling empty or purposeless, infertility, pregnancy loss, adjusting to life changes, women's issues, serious illness, death and dying, understanding and reducing anxiety or depression, grief and loss, divorce and separation, trauma, PTSD, abuse, and spiritual exploration. I bring both extensive training and life experience to this work. I hold a Master of Arts degree in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Art Therapy from Naropa University. The Naropa University art therapy program combines mindfulness meditation training, studio art, and a synthesis of traditional and transpersonal approaches to counseling. I have also received post-graduate school training in Relational Neurobiology, Interpersonal Neurobiology, EMDR (Level I, II, and advanced), trauma work, infertility and third party reproduction, grief and loss, hospice and palliative care, sandtray therapy, and mindfulness meditation.
