My aim is to help you increase self-awareness, understanding, acceptance, and your overall sense of wellness. If you are struggling with personal doubts or questions, relationships, loss, major life transitions, distressing memories or physical symptoms, general dissatisfaction, the responsibilities of your position, or are just seeking a compassionate ear, please consider me for assistance.

In my practice, I help adults learn to cope with and overcome various life struggles. I have over 11 years of experience treating trauma, anxiety, depression, mood disorders, substance abuse, and grief, among other conditions, and also concerns of the LGBTQIA+ and neurodivergent populations.

Always person-centered, I primarily practice an integration of attachment-based therapy (including DARe), Somatic Experiencing®, which is a neuro-scientific, body-based approach to treat trauma and its many side effects, and Gestalt Therapy, which is awareness-based, relational, experiential, and existential. I am also trained to do “Eye of the Needle” work which helps renegotiate and integrate traumatic near-death experiences. Motivational Interviewing, Expressive Arts Therapy, and CBT are also used when appropriate. Read more...
I do work with people in person, though online is an option as well. I have been using telehealth for over 4 years with clients. In using my HIPAA-compliant and secure program, you will not be required to download any software. All you need is a device with a camera and microphone, and a private place to talk with me. I can answer any questions about this option.
I understand you may have hesitations or fears in considering therapy, and will gladly address any concerns or questions you may have about the process. Those of all races, ethnicities, genders, sexual identities and preferences, neuro-types, abilities, spiritual or religious affiliations, adult ages, socioeconomic, and citizenship statuses are warmly invited and welcome.
I obtained a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Appalachian State University in 2013, with certificates and concentrations in Addictions Counseling and Expressive Arts Therapy. I have also obtained 3-year certificates in both Gestalt Therapy and Somatic Experiencing, and have completed certificate trainings in "Eye of the Needle" and DARe attachment therapy. I am a Nationally Certified Counselor and certified Autism Spectrum Disorder Clinical Specialist. As part of my continuing professional development, I now assist with Somatic Experiencing trainings throughout the year.
In my free time, I enjoy hiking, bike riding, traveling, reading, practicing Tai Chi, attempting pottery, and spending time with friends and family. I am dedicated to living as authentically as possible, and to helping others do so as well.
My office is located on the land of the Ute, Cheyenne, Arapahoe, and Shoshone people, in what is known as north Westminster in Colorado, USA.
