I specialize in helping individuals whose wellbeing has been disrupted by loss, trauma, and stress to regain their footing and get the most out of life. Utilizing a person-centered solution focused approach, I encourage clients to engage in and strengthen their innate ability to heal and grow even in the midst of difficult circumstances. The journey to healing is a collaborative process where therapist and client work together to achieve the desired outcome. A variety of therapeutic techniques are employed to support each person as they strive towards health and positive growth to gain a refreshed outlook on life.
I believe we are inherently motivated to be our most optimal selves, so we seek opportunities that foster healing and growth. As a psychologist and life coach, I am most helpful when I support my clients in uncovering critical insights and gaining clarity around how limiting beliefs prevent them from creating a fulfilling life as their best selves. In my work with clients, I encourage and support them in strengthening their own sense of internal power as they make life choices that are more accurately aligned with who they believe they are and what they most value in their lives.

If you need a place to talk about things you have been keeping to yourself about or perhaps feel you don't have anyone else to talk to, I can be witness to that and give you space when you need it, time when you feel you have none to spare, and careful curiosity that is both infectious to healing as it is inviting to the uncomfortable. I have honored the time I have with clients who are afraid to approach therapy or are discouraged to seek it and treasure the wisdom all of my clients have lent to me. My most treasured experiences with therapy come when my personal and professional experiences meet unexpected and novel territory.

Also, I utilize mindfulness and other self-supporting tools (as appropriate). My practice is in Thornton. Please note that I do not accept insurance/medicaid/medicare.
