One of my earliest memories as a young person was the desire to become "the same person everywhere", or the understanding of oneself so well that I no longer had to become what made others ok with me. I feel that a significant journey for every person is to find one's authentic self, and until then we have to mold to the desires of others on us.
I love people. I am a deeply curious person, and love to learn about the world we live in. Walking with someone on their journey to their authentic self is one of the greatest joys a person can have, and it is my privilege to get to do so as a counselor-in-training. It can be very intimidating to start a counseling relationship, but I hope to be a safe place for those who enter the counseling space. I will never ask you to do the work I have not yet done myself. Counseling has been and continues to be a place of healing for me, and a gift I want to pass on to others.
I recently finished courses and will soon graduate with my Master of Science in Professional Counseling from Concordia University. I will graduate with the highest honors, gaining a 4.0 in my coursework.
I am originally from Oregon, but have lived in Colorado for over 15 years. I am an Enneagram 6w7, gardener, cook, mom, wife, and adventurer. I always have my nose stuck in a book and am a life-long learner. Being in relationship with all types of people is my favorite adventure of all!
