Experience and Education
Early in my career I worked with children and their families at a county mental health agency. In this role I gained valuable experience with trauma, attachment-related issues, and mental health concerns as I worked with children at risk for out-of-home placement and hospitalization and their families. I took a detour from this work to become a parent while also teaching yoga and pursuing graduate training in Educational and School Psychology. After completion of this study, I transitioned to the public school system as a school psychologist and worked with pre-k through high school age students. I had the incredible opportunity to combine my passion for education and social-emotional health as I completed educational and mental health assessments and worked individually with students. Then, in 2012, my family and I moved to Colorado and I decided to broaden my skill-set and explore my interests. I studied massage therapy, trained as an Ayurvedic Wellness Counselor, and completed additional graduate training in Clinical Mental Health Counseling (Transpersonal Counseling Psychology). I have always been an active learner and continually seek new skills and approaches to assist individuals.
My current interests include post-traumatic stress disorder, complex trauma, psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy, and embodied approaches to healing.
