"Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive" -Howard Thurman
I completed my Masters of Arts in Spiritual Guidance at Sofia University (formerly the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology) in June 2016. My training includes therapeutic theories and techniques found in Transpersonal and Spiritual Psychology, specifically Psychosynthesis, Focusing, Jungian Dream Analysis, and Somatic Experiencing. As the owner of Inspired Life Counseling, I conduct one-on-one and couples counseling sessions, yoga and free form dance classes, rights of passage ceremonies, courses on spiritual psychology, and group workshops. In addition, I have many years of experience working with families and individuals in hospice as a volunteer and as a Spiritual Care Counselor. I have been a Hatha Yoga teacher since 2010 and have facilitated countless workshops on psychospiritual transformation with groups both large and small with individuals of various races, ages, genders, and sexual orientations. I also served as the Senior Minister at the Interfaith Center for Spiritual Growth in Ann Arbor, MI where I gave weekly sermons on Interfaith and Interspiritual topics with an emphasis on social justice and embodied spirituality.
In 2010, I received my Bachelor's Degree in International Service from American University where I pursued two concentrations: Peace & Conflict Resolution and Global Environmental Politics along with a Minor in Sociology with a focus on Race Relations. Throughout my studies, I traveled to 20 countries studying movements of peace and justice. Before beginning my path as a spiritual counselor, I worked on an organic family farm, managed a small scale farm on an inner-city middle school campus, and organized with a number of grassroots poverty, environmental, and food justice organizations. As a case worker and Program Manager, I also worked with marginalized students in a high-impact adult mentoring program in Denver, Colorado. Most recently, during the summer of 2018, I served on the Ann Arbor Police Task Force, working to address racial injustice in policing through community police oversight.
