Hello, I specialize in counseling adults, adolescents, children and families. I provide parent coaching, including for the "adult child", have written articles and presented webinars on attachment and developmental trauma. My 35 years of experience has been counseling individuals and families through stages of development, trauma and transitions. I have been an elementary and middle school counselor, an educational liaison, given local and national presentations, am an Instructor of "Becoming a Love and Logic Parent", certified in EMDR for PTSD, am trauma informed, and have trained fellow mental health professionals.
What do you truly want in life? Are you struggling, confused or feeling lost? We weren't meant to walk the road of life alone. Here you will find a listening ear and a helping hand. I approach counseling from the belief that everyone has the potential to heal, change and grow! Knowing how and where to begin can be a challenge if you are overwhelmed by emotional, physical or situational problems. With guidance and support the process of exploring and overcoming obstacles that may be getting in the way of achieving your desires becomes easier. Balance creates health & vitality. This moment is an opportunity to discover your best self!
I use somatic-based EMDR, Natural Processing, as a technique to help people. In our lives there are many ways we get stuck. Sometimes this feels inconsequential and sometimes we become aware it is problematic. When we begin to experience difficulties like anxiety, depression, physical symptoms and stress reactions, or emotional intolerance we may decide we want change. I aim to support people in helping resolve these issues so they can live fully in the present, intentionally.

Have you been feeling restless or irritable lately? Not sleeping well or concentrating on tasks at hand? Are you struggling with a recent trauma, relapse, grief, or loss? Have you been struggling with depression, anxiety, addiction, or a recent trauma? Want a therapist who understands the unique challenges of LGBTQIA2S+, BIPOC, and people with marginalized identities? Looking for a kink and poly knowledgeable, sex-positive therapist? You are not alone. I help Colorado residents feel less anxious and depressed.
I love working with clients who are seeking a low pressure, warm, and sometimes humorous environment to work through some challenges that might be holding them back from their full potential. I work with children (3+), adolescents and adults looking to improve areas of their lives from experiencing life transitions, all the way to processing deep trauma, and everything in between. Goals in therapy differ from person to person but overall, it's all about bettering our experience of the world and how we can get the most out of it!

If you are struggling and feel helpless in knowing how to best support your child, there is hope. Whatever your situation--whether your child has anxiety, recurring outbursts, or he/she is exhibiting physical symptoms like an upset stomach or bed wetting--I can help by creating a welcoming space for your child to communicate via play therapy. Play is the language of children and by using research informed methods & building authentic relationships, I can help your child (and you) learn to regulate through challenging emotions, process painful experiences, and learn new ways of relating and becoming his/her authentic self.
I am passionate about seeing your life change though therapeutic intervention. When you first arrive, you'll enter into a safe environment, and, as we work together, you'll receive the support and resources you need to achieve the healing you long for. I feel it's truly a privilege to be invited into your life journey.

Change IS possible -- sometimes we need a little guidance getting there. What changes are you looking for -- improved sense of self? Overcome issues and traumas from the past? Healthier and stronger relationships?
Working together we will identify signs and symptoms that pull you away from living your best life, and move toward practical solutions to help you reclaim and live your life to the fullest.
As a licensed psychologist and family practitioner, I provide an empathic, warm and nurturing environment to seek resolution to your problems. I will give you the tools you need to facilitate personal growth and more adaptive functioning in your relationships. Using a brief therapy model, motivated clients seeking to change disruptive behavior, emotions and thought patterns are able to significantly resolve or alleviate problem areas.
My approach is straightforward. I help people make difficult changes using a blend of evidence-based practices and individualized techniques drawn from 30+ years of experience. I will not tell you comfortable lies. Good therapy always results in some kind of change, so that's what we focus on. I treat anxiety, depression, couples in crisis, addiction, anger, habit change, Internet/video game issues, trauma/PTSD using EMDR or trauma focused CBT, sexually problematic behavior, fallout from divorce, parent-child conflict, failure to thrive, and social skills training.
Do you feel stuck, overwhelmed, stressed, unhappy? Are you experiencing a change, like becoming a new Mom, moving to a new state, getting a new job, or are worried about your drug and alcohol use? My passion is working with clients to overcome and manage life changes and transitions as seamlessly as possible. I understand there are challenges - fear of change is a given - yet there is nothing more healing than connecting in a safe, non-judgemental environment, where growth and potential are encouraged. I would consider myself priveledged to be a part of the your healing journey.

Coming to that place in our lives where we realize we need help from beyond ourselves brings with it feelings of vulnerability and even fear.

Treating each person with respectful compassion and in a non-judgmental manner sums up my attitude to counseling.
