i am

a counselor.

I have always been interested in behavior and what motivates it. As an undergraduate I attended the University of Pennsylvania and studied the Biological Basis of Behavior. I then attended graduate school at Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado and studied Somatic (body-based) Counseling Psychology. I interned as an 8th grade counselor at the Girls Athletic Leadership School (GALS) in Denver, and started my private practice in 2015.

a dancer.

Moving together with a group of (in my case) women, has been when I have felt the most alive and how I have made some of the deepest connections of my life.

a drummer.

In the last few years, I have rediscovered my love for making music, especially with other women. I am eternally grateful that I have the opportunity to create original music, as a form of resistance and magic making, with my all women folk band mud and marrow.

a nature and animal lover.

I worked as an educator at the Philadelphia Zoo for many years before I became a counselor. I have found that observing the animal kingdom and the whole of the world around us can tell us a lot about ourselves. Being in nature is where I consistently find peace and communion with the Spirit/my ancestors and myself.

a wife and mother.

My two sons are my greatest gifts and my greatest teachers. I personally understand the unique joys and challenges that come with starting a family and raising children, particularly multiracial children.
