I am a professional counselor licensed in Colorado with 16 years of counseling experience in a variety of settings including emergency rooms, hospital medical floors, counseling centers, wilderness, and private practice. I am currently a behavioral health specialist providing crisis counseling for clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, psychosis, dementia, ADHD, OCD and drug/alcohol addictions. I work closely with clients experiencing trauma and abuse.
I am a client centered, strengths based, trauma counselor who works with individuals, couples, families and groups toward getting stronger, accepting responsibility to move forward, and psychological healing. I am trained in Brain Spotting, CBT, DBT, gestalt, and motivational interviewing. I work with the client to identify treatment issues, develop treatment plans, and create a strong follow through in the counseling process. I enjoy most things outdoors and when working with clients I also encourage them to use the natural landscape as a way to work through their problems. I am a wife and mother of 2 young children. I understand the stress with relationships, challenges of raising children and difficulty finding time for oneself.
Counseling is not usually described as fun or easy, but if you are ready to work hard you will find that things in your life become more fun and easier to manage. You took the hardest step by signing up for counseling. Now allow me to work with you on your journey toward your end goal. I look forward to working with you.
- Stress, Anxiety

Andrea has worked with me for more than 1 year. She has enriched my life and broadened my perspective.
She has totally changed my life for the better. She is a real life Angel!! Miracle worker and all around amazing human being. I couldn’t say enough good things about Andrea :)
Andrea is amazing. She really listens, and her insight and advice is always specific and helpful. I like that she shares about her life too so you can have a conversation back and forth. Gives the sessions a more natural feel instead of being under the microscope. She always messages back in a timely manner and checks up if I haven't responded in a while. Hope to have her for a while.
I find Andrea very professional and I feel fortunate to have found such a great therapist. I have made amazing progress with her help.
Andrea is very kind and caring. Great listener and has helped me a lot thus far.
I immediately felt comfortable with Andrea. I especially like how she shares her personal background to relate to me.
Andrea has been very helpful in helping me see patterns, being a neutral voice that I really needed to face some things in my life.
