“Trust the Process” is a mantra that has served me throughout my 20 years of clinical experience working with people to create positive changes in their lives. I work to create a foundation of safety, support, and empathy from which to assist someone in a collaborative partnership on their path toward growth and healing. I believe the therapeutic process is a journey toward the freedom of self-discovery to identify and explore the inner essence of a person’s core strengths and capacities and guide them to the lives they most want to create for themselves. I have a passion for alternative modalities that get to the root of the issues in a process of unpeeling the layers so that the person’s true magnificence can be revealed. I work from a Person Centered, strengths perspective using mindfulness and Gestalt techniques and draw from a Jungian therapeutic model. Since recently relocating to Oregon from the Midwest, I have fallen in love with the natural beauty of southern Oregon. As an animal lover and a believer in the connectivity of all of Life, I enjoy hiking and connecting with Mother Earth. My holistic approach to wellness blends very well with Kolpia’s integrated approach, and I am grateful for the opportunity to be of service.
