I am a woman in my 40s whose been enamored with the behavioral and social sciences most of my adult life, particularly how we relate to each other. After a long career in communications and marketing, I decided that I wanted to put my passion for helping people to work. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Media Studies (how the media influences and impacts our lives) and am currently working on my Masters degree in Mental Health Counseling, soon to finish with my classes and start my internship.
Over the past several years, I have spent my spare time and money educating myself about relationships, neuroscience, trauma, sexual issues, betrayal trauma, gender equality, media literacy, relational intimacy, healthy sexuality, healthy femininity/masculinity, relationships, and integral spirituality/psychology. Relationships are what bring people into therapy more than any other issue, and the experts agree that healthy, safe connection is a large part of the treatment. It is my intention to help empower people in these areas with a grounded and workable approach towards authenticity and integrated well-being.
