I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Colorado with over 10 years of experience working with adolescents and families. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, trauma & attachment, parent/child relational issues, and substance abuse.
I believe my clients would say my therapy style is a balance between supportive and challenging. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and placing an emphasis on problem-solving, vs a diagnostic label. My approach combines Cognitive-Behavioral and Dialectical Behavior Therapy.
It takes courage to reach out and look for help in making the steps towards change. If you have read this far into my bio, I hope you have read something that sparks some interest in moving toward working through the problems that led you to this search. I would love to help you explore some ways to increase peace in your life.

Dale has been incredible. I have been in some therapy before, but the way Dale communicates and helps works through things is extremely beneficial and worth its weight in gold. I have had issues opening up but honestly Dale makes it feel as if I am communicating with a close friend who just so happens to be a professional therapist and gives non biased feedback . I hope to work with Dale for a very long time!

Dale listens well and leads the conversation when needed. He is attentive and responds to how the conversation is going.
