Whether you're a child, adolescent , or adult, we work collaboratively to identify where you're starting from, what works best for you, and what goals you want to achieve.
Have you been told you're too hard on yourself or your body? Are you finding it difficult to try something new without experiencing a lot of anxiety? Are you looking for support in identifying or addressing past or current stressful events? You are not alone. Maya Angelou may have said it best when she said "There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you." My goal is to achieve a genuine and open therapeutic relationship so you can feel comfortable sharing what you need to share and begin to feel lighter. I appreciate it so much when I'm trusted with information that might not be readily shared with others.

Whether you are a first responder with too many hard experiences, someone worn out by daily life and changes, or a teenager trying to find your way, I am here to act as your guide to healthier days.
Life can be so difficult. Maybe emotions and life issues have built up to the point that you can't sleep or eat normally. You may feel like you just can't cope any longer. Or, you might feel like life has become so devoid of meaning that the colors have all faded. You may be using unhealthy ways of coping with old injuries or new life difficulties. Whether you are feeling unhappy, hurt, stressed out , angry or afraid, these feelings can keep you from a happy life or healthy relationships. We can work together to help you understand what is happening and create positive changes for a happier, healthier life.

Are you the parent of a child, adolescent or young adult and noticing signs of anxiety or depression in your child, or having other concerns? Are you a teen or young adult struggling with stress in your life? I hope I can be a support in navigating the joys and challenges of childhood to early adulthood. I work with a range of clients in various developmental phases and trust in the wisdom of my clients and their abilities to explore their own themes, symbols, and stories. Children develop a sense of self and safety within the context of early relationships which makes family/guardian involvement important in the counseling process.

I specialize in mental health and wellness, relationship and couples counseling, life transitions, individual counseling, and adolescent and family therapy.
Sometimes life has a way of challenging you to your core. Relationships, parenting, self care, balancing work and career, can all be almost too much to maintain at times. If you are seeking the tools and support to make positive change and learn more about yourself, your capacity, and self growth, I am here to help walk along side you in that journey. Reaching out to begin the counseling process can feel overwhelming and even intimidating, but working to build trust and rapport and meeting each client where they are in their life is my goal to help ease the process and make way for welcoming change.

There are times when the best decision is to seek an outside, unbiased, professional to help renew balance in our lives. I see my role as that of a sounding board for options, with the final decision for action made by the client. Through empathetic questioning, acceptance and reframing we will discover the underlying reason for your current issue. My approach is supportive, with a focus on resolution. It is your time, your agenda. I work with adults and adolescents. I specialize in depression, anxiety, relationships and life transitions, although I work with a wide variety of other issues.

If you need help finding a therapist for your child, I highly recommend contacting CAYAC (Child, Adolescent , and Young Adult Connections) for referrals.
I WILL BE ON SABBATICAL UNTIL SPRING 2023. During this time, I will be working on clarifying my clinical focus. Historically, I have worked with tweens, teens, young adults, and parents on issues related to being a young person or parenting a young person. I anticipate I will continue to do this work, but I won't know more until it gets closer to my return from leave. Please check back periodically for updates on my return. Please note, I will not be generating a waitlist or returning requests for therapist referrals while on leave. Thanks!

Where did my teen go? Your teen is: anxious, unhappy, stressed out &/or traumatized, overwhelmed with school and high expectations, and struggling w/ low self-esteem or trying to "belong." Sometimes you have to walk on eggshells for fear of your teen 's anger. The two of you may be struggling more than ever. You want to help but there's distance between you and you feel shut out. Your teen spends a lot of time in the bedroom, out of the house or on the phone. This seems to make things worse. You’re incredibly worried and you're wondering what you could do differently or how to help. You're at a loss. You're not alone.

Jaime understands the importance of taking into account what developmental stage your teen is currently in and thus, services will be tailored to each specific adolescent ’s developmental stage.
People come to counseling for many different reasons. Jaime believes there is no one size fits all solution. I work with you to find what is going to be the best option for the goals you have for your, or your child's, life.

Life, irrational beliefs, trauma and problematic behaviors can all get in the way of an individual’s ability to access what they have within them to make the changes needed to feel more fulfilled in their lives. This is where counseling comes in, helping to clear the obstacles in the way leading you to a happier feeling life

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Fort Collins and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
