I am an open-hearted lover of life. I believe in the innate goodness and healing capacities of all beings and it is through this lens that I support growth and flowering in my fellow humans.
My capacity for holding sacred space and showing love and respect to all walks of life is the ground through which I work.
I received my Master’s degree in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology from Naropa Univerity in 2013. I have dedicated my life to serving individuals, communities and our great mother earth.
I have years of experience and a natural passion for assisting others in integrating peak experiences, spirituality and knowledge into action. I offer free 30 minute consultations and am able to work in person, or via Skype or phone sessions.

Stone to Lotus
My education and experiences have afforded me a rather unique perspective on psychological health and development. As an undergraduate, I studied Neuropsychology at UC San Diego and then went on to get my Master's in Transpersonal Psychology at Naropa University. I have since been studying Shamanism and plant based paths to healing.
In my personal life, I faced two brushes with death in 2001, which forced me to realize how angry and hard I had become. It was then that I began learning and practicing methods for weaving spiritual and psychological growth together. I have spent the last 15 years dedicating myself to turning this knowledge into action, to transforming myself from "stone to lotus."
Now, my work as a Transpersonal life coach allows me to bring together my passion for growth and years of therapeutic training, with my dedication to shamanic healing and meditation.
