I earned an M.A. in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology from Naropa University (one of the epicenters of the modern mindfulness movement) and have also pursued post-graduate studies in Jungian psychology, Jungian Dreambody work (Process-Oriented Psychology), and Spiritually-Integrated Psychotherapy (SIP), a course of study developed by the Association for Clinical Pastoral Education.

In addition to academia and clinical training, I studied for a decade with Darion Kuma Gracen (1949-2007), a counselor, educator, wilderness guide, and mentor who developed and guided a three-year facilitator training in a form of spiritual process work she called Life-Path Exploration. Elements of all of the above inform my work with people.

Contemplative soulwork is a form of spiritual companioning, creative inquiry, and life path exploration. Our work together is held in strict confidentiality. Though I have a graduate degree in counseling psychology and advanced training in psychotherapy, this work is not therapeutic in focus and not intended to serve as a substitute for mental health counseling, psychiatric treatment, addiction recovery, or other medical care. If in the process of working together, themes, content, or issues arise that necessitate traditional counseling, psychotherapy, recovery work, or psychiatric services, every effort will be made to connect you with those resources.
