I have worked at the University of Idaho for over a decade. I'm a licensed Psychologist and have a small private practice as a Depth Psychologist. I am mindfulness meditation teacher with certification from UCLA, Mindful Awareness Research Center. I teach nationally on topics related mindfulness, creativity, and emotional well-being. I have very applied interests (meaning I like theory to be used to create effective, real life outcomes). Accordingly I have developed courses and workshops to explore the how of mindfulness and expressive art promote health and wellness. I am offering free drop-in guided meditation to faculty/ staff/ students at University of Idaho to help promote health on our campus. I am a single parent with two children and I love family life. I enjoy bicycling, yoga, water sports, art, and reading.
