I am a licensed mental health counselor focused on supporting those experiencing loss and trauma through a compassionate approach that recognizes interconnection with the rest of the natural world. I am certified in ecopsychology and animal-assisted therapy. I changed careers into this field after 15 years of work in federal government and related positions. In graduate school and in clinical work I have sought to deepen my understanding of healing after trauma, including working with survivors of sexual trauma. I also have a special interest in the experiences of veterans, first responders, and those experiencing disasters. I plan on being in private practice soon to offer grief and trauma counseling.
