ABOUT ME

PERSONAL

I have worked as a Special Education Teacher for the past 12 years.  Prior to my career in education, I worked as a Strength and Conditioning Coach in the Bay Area and Redding.  I am an outdoor enthusiast, enjoying cycling, backpacking, camping, and hiking.  I believe that maintaining our innate connection to the natural world is vital in overcoming many of the trappings of modern life.  Nature encourages us to slow down, pay attention, care for yourself and others, and see the strength and creativity found in being human.

THERAPEUTIC ORIENTATION

Human beings exist along a scale of relationships that define and guide us through life.  Whether we are taking about the relationship one has with one's self, family members, friends, colleagues, ancestors, society and culture, and the natural world, just to name a few, we take definitions, meaning, and feedback from these relationships to create a sense of self and others.  My goal is to provide an empathetic and nurturing therapeutic environment that allows for safe exploration of the themes you would like to explore.  I use an integrative approach to therapy, combining and molding theories and tools to provide the most meaningful experience for you.  Through this integrative approach you will discover that THE CAPACITY TO LIVE THE LIFE YOU IMAGINE IS RESTING WITHIN.
