Who is Hygieia?
Who is Hygieia?
Hygieia is the Geek goddess of physical and mental health. She was connected with Asklepios in the 5th century BCE, and together they became the most famous healing couple within the Greek and Roman world. She has a place within the most important triad of healing gods, Apollo and Asklepios. She was honored from the 7th century BCE until the 5th century CE and even today we have inherited her name in our word hygiene, meaning to condition or engage in practices conducive to maintaining health and preventing disease. Here at Hygieia Wellness we strive to align our mission with her calling to provide healing and wellbeing to her patrons.
She/Her & They/Them
I’m a Northern Colorado psychotherapist, Licensed Addictions Counselor and Certified Master Herbalist – Over my 10 years of experience in victims advocacy and mental health services , I’ve developed a style of therapy blending psychology, philosophy, and self discovery. Focusing, intent on helping people connect emotionally with themselves and others. I have had my own recovery through trauma and watching those I love struggle with addiction. This lead me on a quest to understand the realms victims services. I began to volunteer at a local domestic violence shelter while pursuing my undergraduate degree in Applied Social Sciences at CSU. I worked as a victims advocate there after earning that degree, working with families in recovery from domestic violence. I saw a cross over of criminal behavior and substance abuse within this population and decided to earn my a masters in Criminal Justice and Legal Administration with a goal to work with people in the system recovering from domestic violence who were lead into criminal and substance abuse behaviors. I would then go on to pursue a second Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and become a Licensed Addictions Counselor in Colorado. During my studies I worked in a variety of settings specializing in substance abuse, and dual diagnosis. I worked in chemical dependency detox, medically assisted treatment centers, partial hospitalization treatment centers, intensive outpatient and outpatient recovery services. The experiences in these settings helped me to expand my knowledge of the impact trauma, depression, anxiety and other mental health disorders on their journey toward recovery. At the root of substance abuse disorders, are typically mental health disorders. My goal is to help you become inspired to take the next step in your journey.
