1. About me

  • I prefer to be outside as much as possible!
  • My free time is usually spent hiking, backpacking, biking, and adventuring on a new trail, and soaking in some sunshine.
  • I am the second youngest of 6, and grew up in the Colorado Foothills.
  • I'm a big fan of humor! It helps keeps things in perspective and gives a gritty ground for sharing in relationships, and life's adventures.
  • I am a "multipotentialite." I love learning and trying new things. I have diverse interests and love to find the intersections in various activities: Painting, music, philosophy, gardening, leadership, education, science, writing... I'm interested in most anything!
  • I love working with people in their relationships with themselves and their loved ones, healing and growing! I especially love helping adolescents and their families. 

2. My Credentials
