I came to be who I am as a human being and psychotherapist through a myriad of life experiences. I have been on a path of self-discovery as long as I can remember. Curious about the meaning of life, I have always been a bit on the fringe. I explored life internally first through psychedelics and later through meditation and spiritual practices. I travel the world to taste other cultures, deepen my spiritual understanding, and experience firsthand the commonality of our humanity.
My spiritual connection and continued explorations serve as the foundation of my growth. I minored in religious studies because I have always found the religions of the world to hold tremendous wisdom and significance. This inspired me to earn my master’s degree in counseling psychology from Naropa University, a Buddhist-based university.
At Naropa, I learned how to blend psychology and religion/spirituality together through the healing modality of Contemplative Psychology. This, along with over three decades of formal meditation practice, is fundamental to my being and my psychotherapy. These experiences inform the work I do and the way I connect with others.
I offer to all my clients those modalities that have helped me the most on my path: mindfulness, body-centered, intuitive, psychospiritual, and humanistic approaches to healing.
