12 years experience in the field of family counseling.
// 6 years in wilderness therapy as a field staff and Assistant Therapist (Evoke at Entrada)
// 6 years as a therapeutic mentor (Boulder, CO)

Steeped in Nature-based therapeutic models, as well as Narrative and Social therapy.

My work is to help connect people to the world in a meaningful way.

 
 

It all started when…

I was a kid. I was first born in a family of three kids. It took me until I was 18 years-old to realize how much a privilege it was to be a role model for my siblings, rather than consider it an obligation.

I have had a variety of mentors in my life—both official and unofficial—since the age of 12. During college I began volunteering with community-based mentoring programs. Then, after university, I began working in the wilderness therapy model. That job at that time in my life helped me find myself, and my calling. Now, I integrate the work I did in the backcountry with the work I do along the Front Range.

I still can’t believe that having deep, meaningful, and substantive conversations with people about the hard, the enticing, and the secret things in their life is a career. I am so honored by the stories my clients share with me. I hope to hear yours soon.
