The Full Story
… I realized that as a degreed accountant I was doing more counseling than accounting! I decided if I was planning to do counseling right I would get a degree in it.
I've received specialty training the areas of body (somatic) awareness, anxiety, stress and depression. I hold a certificate in Anxiety studies and also hold a certificate in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) from the Center of Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. This happens to be where Jon Kabbot Zinn has done most of his groundbreaking work over the past 40 years in the successful application of Mindfulness studies in so many aspects of life. He and his cohorts have shown in study after study how the effects of de-stressing the body helps any number of physical symptoms.
My Master's Degree is from Naropa University in Contemplative Counseling Psychotherapy, again emphasizing the areas of controlling stress and anxiety through conscious relaxation.
As with all Psychotherapists, learning does not stop when you are granted a degree. I’ve chosen to continue my own learning in areas of anxiety, neuro-processing systems of the brain, body image anxiety, healthy eating, and spiritual learning.
I have enjoyed worldly and spiritual experiences that have allowed me to embrace the beauty and elegance in a variety of spiritual philosophies.
