Education

Wake Forest University, Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Clinical Mental Health, 2020

My journey into depth psychotherapy began during my undergraduate studies in German, Psychology, and Sociology, continued with my doctoral work in German, Jewish, and Scandinavian Studies, and expanded with my master’s work in counseling. Throughout my life, I’ve studied human nature, societal shifts, and cultural identities in order to facilitate positive community change. After teaching German and Scandinavian literature and folklore at university for eight years, I entered the world of community organizing and activism. Through my philosophical readings, literary analysis, and research, I was continuously struck by the overarching human concerns related to meaning and purpose in life, human suffering, freedom and responsibility, and isolation and loneliness. These concerns are what make us human—often floating just below the surface of our daily existence. My graduate work and research has focused on human concerns related to meaning and purpose in life, human suffering and death, freedom and responsibility, and isolation and loneliness.

University of Wisconsin-Madison, Doctorate of Philosophy, German & Scandinavian Studies, 2002

My theoretical orientation is rooted in existential philosophy, feminist theory, and narrative theory, which originated during my studies and research for my doctorate degree. We work together to identify your existential concerns and historical attachments, as we explore psychosocial dimensions of self and others. During our time together, you will learn more about yourself and how to recognize unhelpful patterns that hold you back from making meaning out of life. My work is based on the principles of transpersonal psychology, Eastern and Western philosophies, thanatology, gender studies, and attachment theory. I believe our earliest childhood attachments serve as the basis for our relationships and engagements with others. I also believe each individual has inherent strengths that enable one to grow and adapt through personal choices and responsibilities.

Work History

Throughout my life, I’ve studied human nature, societal shifts, and cultural identities in order to facilitate positive community change. After teaching German and Scandinavian literature and folklore at university for eight years, I entered the world of community organizing and activism. For two decades, I worked on women’s rights and environmental social justice issues facing rural and urban communities. In 2017, after much self-reflection and discovery, I realized that I wanted to return to my original studies, so I could engage fully with individuals and couples seeking to make meaning out of life’s many challenges, to grow as individuals, and to improve and enhance their relationships.
