We understand the challenge of knowing that your child is suffering (through symptoms of anxiety, sadness, aggression, defiance and/or low self esteem) but not knowing exactly how to support them. Our team of therapists (based in Denver, Dallas, and Atlanta) support highly sensitive and gifted children, as well as their parents, in addressing patterns that are holding them back from their greatest potential. In addition to having deep understanding of the sensitive child, our therapists are trained to support ADHD, oppositional defiance, post traumatic stress, and attachment trauma.

I specialize in treating adults, children & adolescents with OCD, anxiety & other mental and behavioral health issues using evidence-based, cognitive behavioral (CBT) strategies including exposure & response prevention (ERP). My work is guided by research on the most effective theory, approach, and strategies for OCD & anxiety. I am available for traditional outpatient therapy as well as more intensive "in vivo" treatment in your home, school, car, or wherever your symptoms are most problematic. I offer these non-traditional services because OCD & anxiety are most effectively treated wherever they "live" in your daily life.

My experience includes addressing mental health issues with children, adults & families.
A great quote says that without a goal, you can't score. The same concept is taken a step further in the Bible, where it says that without a vision, people perish. It's easy to overlook the importance of courageous goals and bold, new visions--that can create a new quality of life for ourselves and those we love.

I specialize in addictions (both adult and adolescent) and parent child relationships with teenagers. I work with young adults in helping them transition from high school to college to adult life. I have also had a great deal of experience working with victims of sexual abuse (both adult and adolescent). I believe in helping people define what they want and help them figure out a plan to work towards that goal. As a therapist who has formerly worked in full time ministry I also enjoy working with people who are dealing with religious issues whether it is deconstruction or helping them develop the spiritual life they want.

Let's face it; sometimes being human can be downright overwhelming. Managing a family and a household on top of navigating work stresses and relationship and interpersonal difficulties, might leave you feeling stretched to your physical and emotional limit. Just when you think you are going to snap, your child begins having emotional or behavioral difficulties that you can’t seem to solve in the ways you have in the past. When we experience difficulties in life, it is often the hardest to ask for help, but sometimes the strongest and most important action is to reach out and request the assistance of others.

I would love to help navigate you or your child's way to happiness, confidence, tranquility, and the ability to manage stress.
Depression and anxiety can leave you feeling exhausted, irritable, and scared without even knowing why. Life can be overwhelming with all of the stress that comes from school, family, pressures from friends, not feeling good enough, and the list goes on. Racing thoughts, feelings of loneliness and hopelessness, lack of motivation, and fear of what life is going to throw at us next are just a few common symptoms. However, there is hope for a sense of calmness in the storm. You can get through these challenging experiences with more confidence.
