I believe we have everything we need to heal inside each one of us. I believe we all have the inherent strength and ability to thrive and will do so if given the right venue and treatment. The times when stress and traumas overwhelm us, we can forget our strengths, skills, and insight. We all deserve to have support to cultivate a safe and trusting space to reconnect with that innate inner wisdom. I seek to support individuals who have become overwhelmed in life and want to learn how to get unstuck, heal past pain, and embody their purpose to live an authentic, thriving life.

I believe in creating a safe emotional space for healing and growth. I believe that growth and healing is within the client. I am here to help guide that growth through empowerment, various techniques and the bond that is established in the relationship. I believe that empathy, humor and honesty are essential to healing. Sometimes we feel blocked or held back in our life due to depression, trauma, relationship problems, limiting beliefs, or we just feel as though we are not achieving our full potential. I believe that not one technique works all the time and that a combination of various techniques is valuable.

My ideal client is frustrated, angry, in despair. Life hasn’t worked out the way it was supposed to. (S)he lost herself somewhere long ago, left herself behind. Relationships are hard; those recurring patterns and reactive behavior keep interfering with connection, and self-esteem, and contentment, and vitality, and... A malaise has settled, along with a darkness. This inevitably leads to anxiety, depression, isolation, addiction, and despair. My clients know there must be more. But, where to begin? How to start?

Most of my clients were either not sure about therapy, or they had already had a bad experience with therapy in the past. I pride myself on giving a different kind of experience. I’m real, I show up fully, (I tend to swear a lot unless you tell me not to) I will never talk down to you or presume what is best for you. You’re in charge. My job is to listen, give feedback, and help you towards the goals that you set. Making that first call can be nerve-wracking, but that's generally the hardest part. (you can text me, if that's easier 970-903-3893) You can learn more about me at www.durangopsychotherapy.com

If you or your teen are struggling with self-esteem, anxiety, depression, behavior management, identity, healing trauma, life transitions, or general stress and overwhelm, I may be a good fit to meet your needs. I aim to create an experience for both teens and adults that doesn't make therapy yet another chore. It's okay if you're resistant to therapy, have had not-so-great experiences in the past, or you don't even know where to begin. Beginning therapy is incredibly vulnerable, but it does not mean you are broken. You simply need some tools and support.

I believe an excellent therapist meets every client where they’re at. Navigating this world with presence and grace is more accessible and meaningful with someone to help process your experiences. We all need someone to talk to sometimes, and I strive to create an integrated and unique safe space for each client to unfold their narratives, fears, hopes and discover their untapped resources. Many people grapple with traumatic stress. It can interfere with our lives, relationships, and overall well-being. Ignoring or suppressing it may be tempting but will only make it worse.

We work together to develop tools to be confident, grow and build toward their goals. I have always been drawn towards children, teens and young adults struggling with trauma, behavioral issues, anxiety, depression or family stressors. Supporting women through pregnancy and post partum is also a passion of mine. Creating a strong therapeutic relationship so you can freely express yourself is important.

You go through the motions each day. Wake up, go to work, come home, go to bed. Rinse and repeat. But every day, you feel more detached. Friends have noticed you becoming distant You've stopped doing the activities that once brought you joy. Everything is a chore. You feel guilty that you're having these troubles. After all, you tell yourself, other people have it so much worse. So you read self-help books and diligently keep a gratitude list. But it's no use. And since everyone else seems to be doing fine, you conclude that you're the problem. It's so lonely feeling this way. You're desperate to make a change, but don't know how.

I have always been pulled towards topics that many in society do not want to talk about – sex, death, money, religion, addiction, and many others. I have seen what happens to individuals when they are left to struggle with these topics alone. Some feel guilt, fear, anxiety, depression, or just an overall sense that they are not allowed to be who they really are. My goal in therapy is to provide a safe space for individuals or those in relationship to talk about these topics and feelings. I work with them to develop the tools to grow into being confident, unashamed, and authentically themselves.

Sexual Abuse Therapists

How do therapists treat sexual abuse?

A good therapist will be nonjudgmental and possibly demonstrate active listening, repeating back what the client says to show that they have understood. These skills allow people to feel comfortable discussing their traumatic experiences openly. Some important treatment goals are to restore a sense of safety and to rebuild confidence. In addition to working one-on-one with the patient, a therapist might bring in supportive family members to assist the client.

Do you have to talk extensively about sexual abuse in therapy?

Survivors frequently find it difficult to describe what happened to them out loud. They can even still be in a state of denial if the sexual abuse occurred recently. It is important for survivors to acknowledge that what happened isn’t their fault and to challenge and reappraise any unhealthy feelings or thoughts as they arise. Art therapy and play therapy are useful non-verbal means of communication for some survivors.

How long does treatment for sexual abuse take?

Recovery from sexual abuse can be a long and difficult process. Some survivors are able to move on naturally on their own, given time, while others require the guidance of a trained therapist. Therapy needs vary and can range from a few sessions to months or even years. Healing from sexual abuse takes time, and everyone’s journey will look a little different.

Can trauma symptoms caused by sexual abuse come back after treatment?

As occurs in many cases of trauma, survivors of sexual abuse may experience PTSD-like symptoms long after the abuse has ceased or after an initial round of treatment has occurred. In such a case, there is evidence that prolonged exposure therapy is a useful treatment for survivors, and may be more efficacious than supportive counseling alone. While triggers may continue to cause distress, the idea is that, with time and repeated exposure, their power will fade, allowing survivors to move on with their lives.
