About Me

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in colorful Colorado. I have over 5 years of experience working with families, couples, and individuals of all ages. I was also an in-home intensive behavioral coach for a year and half focusing on maintaining children in their home whose families were involved with Child Protection. I have experience working with clients who are involved in the legal system, whether through probation or parole, around such topics as domestic violence, childhood trauma, or receiving a child abuse charge.

I have worked with clients around infidelity, communication issues, and trying to reconnect in the relationship. I have worked with individuals of all ages, including teenagers, around sexuality, depression, anxiety, abuse, and life changes. Working as the in-home coach allowed me the opportunity in some of the most difficult situations to help families rebuild and parents to gain new skills to help them parent.

I would define my counseling style as eclectic, while being empathetic and understanding. I know that seeking treatment can be difficult and I want you to feel comfortable in our therapeutic relationship. No two people are the same and so I do what is necessary to best help you specifically with what you are going through. I believe that Emotion Focused Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy provide techniques that can be useful when dealing with many of life's challenges.

I was born and raised as in a Christian home and attended Christian schools from elementary through my undergraduate career. I am happy to include your faith in therapy to whatever extent you are comfortable.

I am excited and grateful that you have chosen me to go through this experience with you!
