Hello, and welcome to my page! Thank you for taking the time to get to know more about me. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Colorado. I have comprehensive experience in a variety of settings, outpatient and inpatient, and have worked with a wide range of clinical concerns. Much of my experience has been with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and substance use concerns. I have also helped many clients with concerns regarding sexual thoughts, beliefs and/or behaviors. I enjoy helping people find purpose and meaning in their lives. I have found this to have a profound positive impact, particularly in clients facing chronic illness, legal involvement, loss of job or career, retirement and other major life transitions.
My counseling style is warm, thoughtful and compassionate. I strive to create a respectful, nonjudgmental and supportive environment, which is necessary for change to occur. I value the dignity and complexity of each person and believe there is a reason for everything we do or think. I am much more interested in understanding these underlying motives than making swift judgments, as this openness and curiosity allows for a rich, enlightening and effective counseling experience.
My approach is collaborative, integrative and dynamic. I tailor treatment to each client’s unique needs, characteristics and preferences. I draw from various approaches, including Humanistic, Mindfulness-Based, Cognitive Behavioral, Interpersonal and Psychodynamic. At the core of my approach is affirmation, empathy and support.
I hope you take the next step toward improving your health, achieving a greater sense of fulfillment and reaching your overall potential. If we seem like a good match, then I would be honored to join you on this journey.

She’s wonderful. Very attentive and insightful, has helped me tremendously in seeing the world for what it is and not for what I perceive it to be. I feel happier now than I have in a long time in no small part due to the change that Kelly has helped me to implement. Highly recommend.
She is a warm person and takes the time to understand core issues.
