“Two roads diverged in a wood and I – I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” – Robert Frost
This quote beautifully reflects my own journey and how I came to be the person and therapist I am today.
Having gone through my own darkness during childhood and adolescence and finding my way back to the light, I realized that my passion and purpose is to provide a space where young people can explore their inner world and express their experience so that they don’t have to suffer unnecessarily through life’s inevitable challenges. When children and teens come to my office, I want to help them feel safe, connected, and whole.
I have a Master’s Degree of Arts in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology from Naropa University. I have worked extensively in judicial, day treatment, and residential settings to help children and adolescents identify and express their feelings, change self-destructive behavior, learn to self-regulate, and achieve their goals.
I’m dedicated to encouraging and promoting your child’s emotional and mental well-being by helping them cultivate greater self-awareness, acceptance, and authentic expression. While I deeply believe in harnessing the transformative powers of these characteristics, I also recognize the importance of teaching children and teens practical skills and coping tools to regulate through difficult moments and thrive in all areas of their lives.
My style as a therapist is collaborative, fluid, and dynamic. Though trained in mindfulness-based methods, I work from a trauma-informed, neurobiological and holistic perspective and apply a comprehensive accumulation of modalities including play, yoga, somatic, cognitive-behavioral, Positive psychology, and existential approaches to psychotherapy. I honor each individual child that I work with and strive to help them see how awesome they truly are.
There is always room to grow and change. But sometimes we have to let go of the stories and behaviors that don’t work in order to see how beautiful we really are.

“To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest.”- Pema Chödrön
Throughout my life, I’ve discovered the beauty of continually being thrown out of the nest. I’ve had many difficult struggles in my own life including intense trauma and grief. I believe that in order to heal we must embrace all parts of our self and our experience. My intention is to guide clients through a journey of love and compassion by tapping into true authenticity. My goal is to offer a sacred space where we can explore self-expression and reconnect with the needs of our heart.
I have a Master’s Degree of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with an emphasis in Mindfulness-Based Transpersonal Counseling. I have experience working with adolescents and adults with chronic mental illness, addictions, and trauma in mental health agencies and inpatient settings. I have extensive experience as a crisis counselor.
With over five years’ experience as a meditation and yoga instructor, I facilitate a space to gain a deeper connection with the mind and body. I believe that everyone is doing the best they can with the resources they have in that moment. I honor the philosophy that we all have the intuitive ability to heal ourselves. Whether a child is experiencing trauma, grief, life transition, depression, anxiety, self-esteem or behavioral issues, I encourage empowerment through embodiment and connection.
