Art has the amazing power to release the areas of the mind that have been locked up due to previous traumas and experiences. I truly believe in the inherent healing nature that art provides, allowing us an avenue to reach our clients in a different way and create deeper connections through active engagement in art practices. I utilize mindfulness practices in my therapeutic approach and always encourage clients to look inward to find their own personal strengths to promote their healing. In order to be successful in the art therapy setting, creating a safe space for clients to grow, share, and heal is always priority.

Throughout life we encounter seasons where we just don't feel how we desire. We experience harmful situations, painful acts, scary circumstances, and life-changing events which causes us to respond mentally, physically, and emotionally. Navigating these events can be confusing, overwhelming, and isolating, but it doesn't have to be.

Hi there. I'm a healing enthusiast with an artistic edge to treating trauma. In my toolbox, there is EMDR, hypnosis, and some energetic visualization techniques to integrate into somatic work. I look through a multidimensional lens at how to view situations with more compassion and curiosity, rather than our inner critic's best ass whoopings. I tend to attract more artists and creative empaths to work with in sessions, so if you have an active imagination, that is a plus for this kind of work.

I have experience working with a diversity of needs, though I specialize working with families, children, teens on the autism spectrum.
Many of us carry the idea that happiness is about being content, cheerful, carrying a smile on one's face all the time. Rather, I like to think of well-being as a balance in one's "emotional ecosystem," or variety of different emotions we allow ourselves to experience.I believe that our emotional flexibility to experience a full range of emotions (positive, negative, & a mix of both) is strongly linked to our feelings of happiness & well-being. No, I don't believe there's anything wrong with you. Perhaps all you need rightnow are tools to help you embrace the full range of your human experience while "surfing" those emotional waves.

You wish you could burn the bridge to express emotions at work. It’s easier to keep people distanced and keep masking your wandering ADHD attention and impulsive thinking. Nobody wants to hear your word-vomit-hyperfixation-info-dump anyway, right? It’s way easier to wrestle with to desire to be seen and stay silent in your Zoom meetings anyway. The idea of being in the spotlight this project sprint lurches the weight in your stomach down deep. The idea of being seen as the imposter your inner critic thinks you are is darkness like the ocean floor, and there are days you feel like you are drowning in it.

As a mental health professional, I have worked with a variety of populations and demographics in hospital, community, home, school, and military settings. I have also previously worked as a banker, athletic coach, and military officer. As my experiences have shaped who I am as a counselor, I have a particular empathy for minority, LGBTQ+, and military clients, though I do consider myself a generalist in my ability to relate to people. Clinically, I address anxiety, depression, and trauma, as well as behavioral and attentional issues, in individual therapy with people of all ages and backgrounds.

My practice is limited to assessment and evaluation, primarily with clients involved in the legal system for some reason. Adolescent age youth and adults are the specialty age groups, in part because adolescents and young adults tend to be involved with the legal system in criminal matters more frequently. My background includes clinical work with adolescents in the Denver Metro area and throughout Colorado. It also includes administrative and clinical work with forensically involved adults. Parents facing termination of parental rights and parents disputing custody structure make up the remainder of my focus and experience.

Autism Therapists

What is the most effective treatment for autism?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) has come to be considered the standard treatment for children with autism spectrum disorder, and research has confirmed its effectiveness for many children. Therapists trained in ABA techniques work with children (and their parents) on developing social skills, communication and learning abilities, and everyday habits of hygiene and grooming. The clinician will tailor their program to the child’s particular need but the overarching goal will be to help them advance as far as possible toward independence based on their level of symptoms and decrease the need for additional special services. Families should seek a mental health professional specifically trained in ABA, and holding special certification in the technique, who has extensive experience not only with the approach but in using it with children with the same level of symptoms as the child who needs care.

How does ABA work?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) sessions, which typically focus on positive reinforcement, can be intensive, lasting two or more hours several times a week, and continuing for two years or more. Therapists can also be expected to ask parents to take an active role in reinforcing lessons. Research has found that the technique can lead to major improvements that decrease the need for additional special services.

How does treatment for autism work?

Therapy sessions based on Applied Behavior Analysis will likely be frequent, intensive, and highly structured. After a thorough assessment, a therapist will help a child understand and develop skills in a range of areas, including communication, motor skills, social skills, self-care, play, and academic skills, as well as routines of daily living like hygiene. Typically, the therapist will help a child break down the components of a behavior—often referred to as the antecedent (what prompts an action), the behavior, and the consequence(what immediately follows)—and then reward the child at every step, while also asking parents to reinforce the lessons, and the rewards, throughout the day. This core therapy may be supplemented by occupational or speech therapy, and antidepressants, antipsychotics, and anticonvulsants may be prescribed to address specific severe symptoms.

How long does therapy for autism take?

Some people with autism spectrum disorder may be engaged in some level of therapy for many years, but research shows that treatment will be most effective if it is begun early and delivered intensively. When therapy begins by age 3, children tend to be better able to grasp and adopt the skills needed to manage everyday life, including attending school and establishing social relationships. This type of early-intervention treatment regimen is highly structured, typically involving 20 to 40 hours of one-on-one therapy per week, along with additional hours of engagement managed by parents, for a period of two years of more, although the duration of treatment is dependent on the child’s level of symptoms and pace of progress.
