Professional Counselor Intern

Therapy is an important step towards making positive changes. Past trauma can cause us to constrict our beliefs about ourselves which has an effect on our thoughts and behaviors. Our time together will help guide you on the path of self-discovery.

My Approach

I offer a compassionate, non-judgmental, therapeutic environment where my clients can feel welcome and safe. This setting allows clients the opportunity to express themselves deeply, and relate to their authentic self. I utilize an eclectic approach, based on the different needs of my clients. As a trained Depth therapist, I believe that healing can happen through accessing the realm of the unconscious. This process of exploring thoughts and images can be daunting, but also immensely satisfying and life changing. Creativity is an important part of my practice as it is a unique way access material that lies bound up in the psyche. I also use a combination of Mindfulness techniques, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Control Mastery Theory (CMT). Ultimately, I practice a blend of theories that best serve my clients and help them find their inner voice.

My Background

I attended Pacifica Graduate Institute and received a MA in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Jungian Psychology. My Master's thesis focused on the process of creativity, inspiration, and overcoming writer' (or artist's) block. I have worked professionally in the arts as an illustrator, woodworker, and currently perform as a singer/songwriter. I also have had past experience owning a small business, and understand the stresses and challenges of running an organization. As a practicum therapist at the National University of Naturopathic Medicine (NUNM), I counseled grad students and healers. I currently facilitate a men's group, "Soul Journey: Search for the True Self" on Wednesday evenings and work with both men and women to help them connect with their undiscovered self.
