About

Hello and welcome. My passion is working with adolescents, young adults, and the families who support them. My connection with adolescents is built on trust, safety, comfort, respect, and understanding, which allows me to create relationships with teens that can be hard fought with other adults. Speaking what can seem to be a foreign language and creating a bridge to families through the translation of that language brings purpose to my work. I have over twelve years of experience working with adolescents and families in different capacities and have dedicated my career to working exclusively with this population.
Adolescence and early adulthood are complicated in and of themselves. Changing biology and neurology can mark these life stages with instability. The frenzy of change within and without is confusing and wrought with constant construction and deconstruction. When young people also struggle with mental health issues, substance use, behavioral issues, or are struggling to process unresolved trauma or grief, the result can be a tornado of imbalances. The families of young people are often left to weather the storm, which can feel powerless, fearful, and frustrating.
Individual and family sessions are designed using integrated approaches to create a collaborative, individualized, and tailored experience to reach the goals of the family and the adolescent. If you or a loved one are experiencing self-esteem issues, negative peer group issues, anxiety, self-harm, depression, conduct/defiance issues, authority issues, anger, attachment issues, depression, involvement with the criminal justice system, substance use or are simply seeking educational sessions for a young person, please contact Colorado Adolescent Therapy for a free 30 minute consultation.
