I became a therapist because I wanted to give back to the world the support I had been given after my father died, when I was 21. I continue to be a therapist because I love connecting with people in such a real way. Our humanity is what keeps me going every day, and if I can help others embrace and build upon their own humanity, I think the world can be a better place.
I have a BA degree from Mount Holyoke College, in South Hadley, MA. I graduated in 1998 with a major in Geology.
I have a MA degree in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology, with an emphasis in Wilderness Therapy, from Naropa University, in Boulder, CO.
My experience includes working with dual-diagnosis teens as an Expedition Therapist at Catherine Freer Wilderness Programs in Oregon; as a Grief Counselor at local hospice organizations; with LGBTQ-identified youth in Boulder County Public Health's OASOS Program; as a Family Therapist at a residential treatment center for teens; and as a clinical intake evaluator at Boulder Community Health. I have specialized training in attachment work from a somatic perspective, grief and loss work, and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy.
