I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Licensed Addiction Counselor in the state of Colorado and have worked with diverse populations for over 15 years. No matter the issue whether it is substance abuse, trauma, relationships, family of origin, parenting, depression, anxiety, or fear; developing clarity around reasons we behave and react as we do is vital in self-examination. When we develop awareness around problem behaviors and responses to circumstances, we begin the evaluative process of returning to right-mindedness (seeing vs. defending against). Correcting thoughts and observing our perceptions and projections allows us to do the work necessary to modify what isn't working. My approach to working with clients is relational and client focused. This means I meet you where you are while listening and guiding sessions so you feel heard and understood. My primary objective is to support you with practical solution-focused strategies as you progress toward your treatment goals.
Transformation only happens when we are willing! Asking for help demonstrates your willingness to look inside and use your strengths and resources to take responsibility for your life. Willingness allows you to consider a different way to self-examine so you create the life that you desire! One free from isolation, shame, guilt, and blame. A return to loving yourself!
I look forward to hearing from you!

Even though I've only been working with Andrea for a few weeks, I feel like I can come to her with just about anything. She's very intuitive and non-judgmental. I always leave our sessions feeling a little more positive!
