I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), am licensed and currently live in the state of Colorado, although I also maintain my LCSW licensure in Texas. I studied at the University of Texas at Austin for both my undergraduate (BSW) and graduate degrees (MSSW) in Social Work. Since graduating with my Master of Science in Social Work (MSSW) in 2003, I have worked with couples, families, and children in a variety of settings, to include non-profit organizations, schools, hospitals, and for the military.
Most of my experience is in the field of trauma, helping families who have been exposed to violence – either abuse, domestic and sexual violence, exposure to some other type of disaster, as well as combat trauma. I am certified in three evidence based trauma therapies, Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE).
I also have experience and a passion for working with couples, doing marriage and family therapy, and helping families resolve conflict, increase intimacy, and improve or sustain healthy relationships.
I believe one of the most important and key indicators of successful treatment is the therapeutic relationship, so it is important to me to build trust and ensure that working together is the right fit.

Aimee has been an amazing helping hand! She is very versatile and accommodating to my needs. She has taken the time out to understand my issues and provide strategies on helping me. Having BetterHelp is a great convenience for those so busy with their work or family lives, it is great to have a counsellor just a phone call away. Thank you Aimee for all of your support

I have been working with Aimee for over a year and she has provided a much needed sounding board as I work through long standing issues, but also things that pop up in every day life. I look forward to our weekly sessions and I also like that I can send her updates throughout the week if I want.
