Troubled Youth Counselor
March 2005-November 2015
I worked with troubled youth in various capacities, first as a Wilderness Instructor at SUWS of Idaho, at a Tween and Teen Girls Boarding School in Central Oregon, Mentored High School and Middle school aged girls in The Bay Area and then as a Family Therapist at a Therapeutic Boarding School.
MA in Integral Counseling Psychology
January 2010-May 2013
Attended a Transpersonal Integral Counseling Program in San Francisco, California. The program was experiential, exploratory and deeply rooted in Western Psychology blended with Eastern Traditions. I did a Vision Quest, Learned Intuitive Healing, Experienced Gestalt Process Groups, and the practice of non-dual meditations.
Private Practice Therapist
I began seeing individual clients as a Mentor to teens whose parents wanted extra support for their children. I was trained as a Gestalt Therapist, participated in a group practice and facilitated groups of healing for adults and individuals since 2009. I am now qualified to begin working as a supervisor to interns who are working toward clinical hours.
