I utilize mindfulness and body-centered approaches ...
...to promote mental health. My orientation is influenced by three important lenses: how we make sense of our environment (Neuroscience), how we build relationships (Attachment Theory), and how we manage ourselves with others (Affect Regulation). Sessions are typically experiential because I believe that growth comes from working with material in the moment rather than simply talking about it.
My educational background includes...
...receiving a Bachelor's Degree in Somatic Psychology and a Master’s Degree in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology from Naropa University - a mindfulness-based university - in Boulder, CO. Since that time, I have received additional training in Acceptance and Committment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), as well as becoming certified in Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy (PACT).
