"I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul." - William Henley. People want to feel in control. But, when people experience internal or external change, and resist such, they can feel a loss of control. By identifying aspirations, increasing insight, developing integrity, and encouraging self-care, I have helped countless clients regain control. I have worked in a variety of settings, including outpatient, residential, and inpatient; and with a variety of populations, including adults, adolescents, and children experiencing depressive, anxiety, trauma/stressor, disruptive/impulse-control, substance, or personality disorders. These experiences have sharpened my ability to quickly develop rapport with a diverse clientele, identify a wide range of issues in clients, and problem-solve with clients solutions to such issues. Presently, I specialize in adolescents and adults experiencing depressive or anxiety symptoms. So many people are affected by these symptoms. Furthermore, these symptoms can be so paralyzing and affect, not only individuals, but the people individuals relate to. For me, it is deeply satisfying to see people free themselves from these symptoms. I am credentialed as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a National Certified Counselor (NCC). My techniques include Cognitive-Behavior, Psychodynamic, and Existential therapies. I love my work, and I look forward to working with you.

Our childhood wounds and traumas become blocks to the manifestation of our purpose/gifts. I honor the inherent wisdom of my clients and help them find authentic expression of their gifts. My strengths are my ability to use my intuition to help clients "put the pieces together," and my own personal experience with resolving trauma.

I believe in working from a systems perspective, which means as the therapist, I take into consideration all of the systems which have (had) an impact on the client’s life; including their family, work environment, neighborhood, the society at large, how they were raised, & their cultural and/or religious background. Grounded in the use of Brief, Solution-Focused Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I am also well versed in other therapy modalities. My usual treatment method is to give a client presenting for therapy as much control over their own treatment as possible. My responsibility is to guide our sessions together in a clinically helpful, safe, & appropriate manner. After the first few sessions, the client(s) and I will reach mutual agreement as to whether we feel good about moving forward with treatment as a team. My Masters in Psychology (Marriage and Family Track) training (1995-1998) & subsequent work (1998-2001) took place in The San Francisco Bay Area, where I worked with people from many diverse cultures, including immigrants from all over the world. There, I gained experience working with families, (intact, blended, or otherwise), partial families, couples (heterosexual and same sex), adolescents, and with individuals. I moved to Colorado from California in mid- 2001, and I obtained my License as a Colorado Marriage and Family Therapist in 2002. After this I spent many years working with individuals & families presenting widely varying types of mental health diagnoses, before deciding to start a private practice in 2010.
