Licensed Professional Counselor
Areas of specialty: Anxiety, depression, Mood Disorders, substance use/abuse/addiction, psychedelics and psychedelic integration, ketamine-assisted psychotherapy and integration, school related issues, failure to launch, transitional and adjustment issues, trauma.
Educational Background: I received my undergrad degree in psychology from Lewis and Clark College in Portland Oregon and my graduate degree in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology from Naropa University in Boulder Colorado. I have completed multiple trainings including Heartmath, a yearlong somatic based trauma training, a yearlong psychedelic assisted psychotherapy training and 40hr intensive psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy specific training.
I am a Transpersonal, person-centered clinician who works collaboratively with my clients to meet them and support them at any level in their lives. I believe in the healing nature of connection and relationships, and I adjust my approach based on the needs of those sitting across from me. I utilize modalities such as talk therapy, internal family systems, motivational interviewing, brainspotting, somatic practices and mindfulness awareness practices. I also believe in the therapeutic nature of psychedelics and profound ability to help in the healing process. I am a trained psychedelic-assisted psychotherapist, ketamine-assisted psychotherapist along with preparation and integration work.
My work has spanned across two decades which has included inpatient treatment in Troutdale Oregon, detox, therapeutic mentoring and transitional living programs in Boulder Colorado and for the past 8 years I have been in private practice which is also located in Boulder.
I believe in the human spirit and in one’s innate desire to heal. Basic goodness resides in all of us and often through our life experiences or through societal interjects we lose sight of that in ourselves and in others. I believe that it is in connection to self and others that we can overcome the barriers, re-write the stories, develop the healthy coping skills and integrate all that we have learned in order to find our True Self.
