I work with adults who are experiencing conditions such as anxiety, depression, trauma / PTSD , relationship issues, and grief/loss.
Having a solid therapeutic relationship is essential to the success of your experience in therapy, and I am committed to creating a space in which you will feel safe, deeply heard and seen, and can be a collaborator in the therapeutic process. I believe in creating a mutual alliance built upon honesty, empathy, trust, and respect. Together, we will explore the challenges and obstacles you face, while identifying personal strengths and other resources that will help facilitate meaningful change and growth.

Trauma , anxiety, depression and interpersonal issues are the mainstays of my practice, but I have robust experience with a variety of challenges and situations.
Have you ever been stuck in a snowbank, with your tires spinning, having to rock your car back and forth over the ice again and again until you make your way out? Perhaps you had to dig the car out. Maybe you needed a little push. Maybe you needed a tow truck. Whether you need a push or a tow truck, Active Insights Therapy is all about helping you dig and pull yourself out of those stuck places. I love helping my clients discover their inner best friend, know what they deserve in relationships and move toward their higher calling while taking action in life. Above all, I love making really bad jokes!

I also use Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and EMDR in working with trauma .
If you are having trouble with relationships in your life or have lost interest in the things that once brought you joy it might be time for counseling. These are not uncommon experiences in our human lives, but if they go on too long life may start to unravel. My passion is to help people find answers to these questions and move beyond their difficulties to a more peaceful and fulfilling life. Although I use a variety of modalities in my work I specialize in using EMDR to treat trauma , anxiety, OCD, panic and phobias.

I am EMDR certified and have used this evidence-based approach to help with a variety of issues including trauma , anxiety, depression, OCD and others.
I see therapy as a collaborative process in which I listen to how you want to move forward with your goals. I always take time to really hear how you, as an individual or couple, want to make changes and respect your own choices in your life. We sometimes find ourselves repeating negative patterns or stuck in challenging situations but have difficulty knowing how to make lasting changes. Therapy can help make this clearer.

So is there any good news? Yes! With the right therapy, trauma -related struggles are some of the most treatable mental health conditions.
Licensed in CO and MA. It’s like a video stuck on a loop that keeps playing over, and over, and over… You can’t get the images out of your head. Looking over your shoulder, being easily frightened; it wasn’t you before, but it is now. Things look bleaker than they did before it happened. Remembering or not remembering, you’re unsure of which is worse. Is this your new normal? To others, you look like you’re keeping it together. It couldn’t be farther from the truth. You’re hiding behind a thin veil of normalcy and you're worried about what would happen if the curtain were pulled back.

I have expertise in trauma and stress, substance use, grief, and motivational issues.
At times, life events can seem to control the way we feel, creating feelings of helplessness and hopelessness. Other times, you may struggle with feeling unmotivated or purposeless without any specific cause. I believe psychotherapy empowers people by understanding specific struggles while actively developing skills to create change. A key part of our work will be identifying the things that matter to you and finding ways that therapy can bring you closer to a life that is more connected with your values.

Certified in Trauma Focus/ ARC Framework and Narrative worldview.
Whether working with a family, individual, and/or couples, I believe in a relational process in which finding a therapist that is a "good fit" as the groundwork for a supportive, transformative process. I believe that every individual has the ability to examine their life's journey and own their story; all while strengthening self compassion and working to navigate who and how to be in relationships. This along with growing to know, understand and accept oneself. Stepping into the therapeutic process is the first movement towards self discovery and growth.

Resolving challenges related to trauma , anxiety and depression can significantly improve clients' lives and relationship.
Are you unhappy in your relationship? Feeling disconnected? Unappreciated? Maybe you have same discussions over and over, but nothing changes. You feel your relationship withering, month by month, and you can’t seem to change it. You might even be thinking about separating, though you aren’t ready to make that big decision. One of the most painful experiences of my life was the slow death of my marriage. It took me years to recover. Let me teach you the Relational Life Therapy tools that have made my second marriage so happy.

I offer psychotherapy services to adults of all ages and work with individuals navigating mood and anxiety disorders, trauma (individual, collective, intergenerational, historical), relationship concerns, grief and loss, spirituality, identity development, neurodivergence, sexuality, and gender.
My therapeutic approach is informed by psychodynamic and relational theories, as well as internal family systems, narrative techniques, and anti-oppression principles. I seek to draw connections between clients’ histories and their experience as it unfolds in the here-and-now of the therapeutic exchange, all in service of coming into deeper relationship with oneself. My therapeutic style is non-judgmental and compassionate with attention to the relationship between us, as individuals, and the systems that impact us.
