I received a Liberal Arts degree from Virginia Tech in 1992 and worked in the private sector before returning to school in 1998 where I received a Master of Arts in Counseling from The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology in 2000. In addition to being in private practice for over ten years, I have served at The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology as a practicum facilitator and leader, teaching counseling theory and practice to first year students in an interactive and experiential environment. I have also served as an on-site counselor for Vision House, a transitional housing program for homeless men, women, and children.

Experiential Education/Adventure Therapy

From 1993 to 1994 I served as a mountain guide and counselor for Beyond Malibu, a mountaineering program for adolescents in the Coast Range of British Columbia. I am currently involved with this program in a staff selection and training capacity and continue to believe that unique and challenging settings provide a powerful context for growth and change in adolescents and adults.

Epilogue Sailing: Charting a Course for Change

Currently I organzie and facilitate one to five day, all-inclusive sailing weekends designed to provide participants with a unique and challenging context in which to explore the core issues we face in our culture. While learning to sail and operate a beautifully restored 55 ft. sailboat, participants will have the opportunity to tell their stories and thoughtfully engage areas of their lives that are all too often neglected: all in the context of community and the rich metaphors offered by life on a sailboat. These programs are experiential in nature and are tailored to meet the specific needs of each group. Please feel free to contact me if you would like more information or to reserve a trip for your group. www.epiloguesailing.com Note: groups are limited to six passengers.
