Resident In Counseling
Mindfulness Services Lead
LBA Group Leader
As a counselor, I seek to connect with clients through empathetic listening and to support mental health and emotional balance. In my practice of massage and yoga, I have focused on easing chronic pain and using mindfulness techniques to promote awareness, relaxation, and health. The opportunity to bring this knowledge to counseling allows me to explore the connection between mind and body to promote mental and physical well-being as well as freedom.
The beauty and wonder of nature are a central part of my life. I am eager to learn about people and what inspires them. From there, I hope to encourage people to tell their own stories and help them to find their meaning. For those reasons, I am thrilled to be a part of the Health and Mind team!
