About Ray

Nature-Based Therapist, M.A., LPCC

Ray is originally from Cleveland, OH.  She graduated with her Bachelors of Arts in Social Social Sciences from Lake Erie College in Painesville, OH.  For the next few years, she worked at several non-profit organizations, such as the YMCA and Girls on the Run of Northeast Ohio.  She also served as Co-President of the Coalition for Children's Mental Health in Hudson, OH, while exploring her backyard, Cuyahoga Valley National Park.  Finally, it was time to take her adventure to Colorado, where she backpacked the Colorado Trail with her Australian Shepard before enrolling in Naropa University's Transpersonal Wilderness Therapy program.  Ray completed her practicum internship at Rocky Mountain Integrative Academy, an alternative high school, in Westminster, CO.  She then went on to complete her 9-month internship at Harmony Foundation, a drug and alcohol addiction treatment center in Estes Park, CO.  Ray fell in love with Estes Park, the community, and her new backyard of Rocky Mountain National Park, deciding to call it home and open up Wanderlust Counseling.   




Office Appointments

Office appointees are generally 50 minutes in length.  Ray offers free 20 minute introductory meetings.  Please contact her for more information.


Wilderness Appointments

 Wilderness appointments are generally 90 minutes in length, with an agreed upon meeting location.  While these appointments are spent outdoors, they may or may not involve some hiking.  Sometimes, the majority of the session may be spent sitting under a tree.  It is up to the client and what Nature has in store for the day.  Nature-based appointments can be arranged for Estes Park, Lyons, or Boulder.
