Announcement icon I provide secure, online tele-psychotherapy sessions for clients across Colorado. I take insurance/self-pay and offer a free consultation.
I am a disabled military veteran who understands how anger, sadness, trauma, moodiness, self-esteem, interpersonal problems, and substance use can impact a person's ability to cope with life demands such as work and relationships. I have compassion and empathy for what you are experiencing and understand the importance of connection, the pain of a broken heart, difficult life transitions, and the struggles of addiction. I want to listen to your story as I walk with you during this challenging time, in a supportive and non-judgmental manner, as you are not alone, I am here with you throughout the journey with hope and encouragement.
I offer a caring and collaborative approach in addressing treatment needs at a pace that you are comfortable with while utilizing an eclectic therapeutic process. My goal is to support your growth through evidence-based and relational-based interventions during sessions and provide additional resources to supplement session work to create resiliency.
I respect your values as well as your spiritual journey. I am here to love and support you. I believe in uplifting and empowering you with grace and mercy wherever you are in your life story, I want to help you. I believe in the healing power of love and kindness, of embracing that which seems broken, working towards a place of balance and inner peace.
