About Me

AMFT 118011 – Under supervision of Clark Elliott PhD, MFT #21362
Individuals, Couples and Family therapy

I specialize in ecotherapy and integrate the healing powers of nature with attention to my clients’ goals and aspirations. Named after the Challis National Forest, I grew up exploring Idaho’s mountains, valleys and rivers and understand the positive effects of outdoor experience on physical and mental health.

I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to treat trauma, addiction, depression and anxiety. I’m currently based in Santa Barbara, California and offer remote sessions throughout the COVID-19 crisis.

I use a client-centered approach that honors the lived experience and inherent wisdom of my clients. Throughout therapy you may find greater self-awareness, self-acceptance, curiosity, and courage to change. 

I graduated from Antioch University in 2019 with an MA in Clinical Psychology. I am working under supervision of Clark Elliott PhD, MFT #21362.
