I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Art Therapist practicing in Colorado.I graduated from Naropa University in 2008 with a master’s degree in transpersonal counseling and a concentration in art therapy. I have experience working with children, families, adults and the elderly, and for many years have focused my work with those who's lives have been impacted and undone by loss, and the grief that follows. I am a certified EMDR Therapist, and have a private practice seeing individual's and families in the Front Range with an office in downtown Lafayette, Colorado.
In addition to my clinical work, I have served as a hospice chaplain, Spiritual Director and Yoga teacher, RYT200. I understand that our spiritual lives are not separate from our social, familial, political or ecological engagement, and also not separate from our growth and healing. For many of us, cultivating and nurturing a deeper spiritual awareness that is embodied and direct, can support us in living more engaged and fulfilling life. I completed my training as a Mashpiah, Jewish Spiritual Director, in 2016 after a three year training with Aleph: Alliance for Jewish Renewal. In addition to working currently with individuals in Spiritual Direction I serve as Mashpiah faculty for Aleph's rabbinic and cantorial programs. I also supervise graduate interns at Elevation Hospice after serving as a chaplain with them for several years.
I am also part time visiting faculty at Naropa University. Since the Fall of 2018 I have had the pleasure of teaching in both undergraduate and graduate Art Therapy and Wilderness Therapy programs.
