As a therapist and counselor for over 20 years, I specialize in trauma. Specifically first responders & Military, peer to peer community mental wellness, and women's recovery.

Somatic Psychology, Buddhist Psychology, and Marriage and Family Counseling are my foundations and I have spent decades in the trenches working with folks to live well, recover and thrive after trauma using nervous system fluency and mindfulness along with somatic and transpersonal holistic methods. 

I work as a Learning and Development Director for a large health company that serves military service members and families all over the world. I also run a consulting business where I teach Peer 2 Peer Holistic Emotional First Aid to companies and agencies all over the globe.

During my free time I love being in nature, on a bike, paddle board, raft, or my own two feet. Taking photos is my self care, and I have lived from Hawaii to Alaska, spent time in 46 of the 48 lower US states and 13 countries as a military spouse and therapist.
