First, thank you for making it this far into the website … I appreciate your taking the time. I have over 20 years of experience in professional counseling inside of hospitals, drug and alcohol recovery centers, schools, employee assistance programs, supporting military service members, and front-line crisis intervention. However, my personal journey has taken me, step by step, away from my culture of origin to live with (from my perspective) ‘foreign’ or ‘first-native’ peoples. I began my psychological career studying archetypal, depth psychology and became immersed in comparative religion, mythological themes, and traditional systems of healing. From living in rural Hawaii, to Navajo Nation, to Northern Thailand and Myanmar, I have worked towards integrating traditional wisdom with contemporary psychological practice. I currently reside in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
