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 Psychology and Somatic Psychology, specifically Psychosynthesis, Focusing, Jungian Dream Analysis, and Somatic Experiencing. I have been a Hatha Yoga teacher since 2010 and have facilitated workshops on communal healing and transformation with groups both large and small of various races, ages, genders, and sexual orientations. Since October of 2016, as the owner of Inspired Life Counseling, I have conducted one-on-one and couples counseling sessions, yoga and free form dance classes, rights of passage ceremonies, and courses on transpersonal and somatic psychology.
In 2010, I completed my Bachelor's Degree in International Service from American University where I pursued concentrations in Peace & Conflict Resolution and Global Environmental Politics, and a minor in Sociology. Throughout my studies, I had the privilege of traveling extensively to countries around the world to learn from local movements for justice. Before beginning my counseling work, I was a Crop Manager on an organic family farm (New Morning Farm in south central PA,) I managed a small scale farm on a middle school campus in the Westwood neighborhood of Denver, CO with Re:Vision, and I organized with a variety of grassroots environmental and food justice groups and organizations. As a Program Manager for Colorado Youth At Risk, I facilitated relationships between students from three Denver Public Schools and adult mentors via workshops, retreats, and individual support. I have many years of experience working with families and individuals in hospice as a volunteer, and later, as a Spiritual Care Counselor. For a short time, I 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. During the summer of 2018, I was a member of the Ann Arbor Police Task Force- an attempt to address police brutality and harassment through community police oversight. Currently, I continue my commitment to healing and justice as a founding member of Liberate Don't Incarcerate, a board member of Gemstones in the Sun, and a chapter leader for Resource Generation.
