Beka began with us as an Intern in our Masters Training Program in ‘21 and we’ve been grateful for her ongoing dedication since graduating, serving as a provisionally licensed part-time counselor. She works 20 hours a week and provides short-term counseling, outreach and education to the student body. She hosts Weekly Wellness through HeartMath BioFeedback Hours, is trained as an Auricular Acu-Technician and provides Acudetox. She has received specialized training in Substance Use. If or when student(s) wish to initiate a student group focused on Recovery or Harm Reduction, she can provide consultation to students so they can get that group started.
Beka’s connection and enjoyment in working with the hearts and lives of others comes through a deep appreciation of how people make sense of life. She has learned what is meaningful to people takes many shapes and forms. Beka studied Divinity at Naropa in the early 2000’s and returned to Adams State University for her master’s in clinical counseling. She has worked in hospitals, addiction treatment, wilderness therapy, community mental health, homeless shelters, and Windhorse Community Services. Beka deeply trusts the inherent wisdom of all people to know their unique path forward. She uses reflective questioning to support this journey and believes taking the time to know oneself is a rich endeavor.
Beka considers herself a part of the LGBTQIA+ community and is always interested in learning about something she doesn’t know. Beka and her wife share a home with two dogs. She appreciates being out in the natural world and also appreciates time to reflect and rest.
People working with Beka can feel her compassionate nature and her grounded-ness and benefit from her breadth and depth of experience in helping profession work.
