Master's in Counseling Student at St. Martin's University
Penelope has been working in community mental health since 2011 when she started a therapeutic carpentry program for women and LQBTQIA individuals. She has studied methods for working with trauma, gender and identity issues, anxiety and depression, grief and other issues. She believes that each person has the ability to grow through anything when the right form of support is provided, and aims to create a space where new and old territory can be explored safely and comfortably.
She is particularly inspired to work using cognitive behavior therapy, and somatic modalities through a lens that takes the whole person AND their community into account.
