I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in a rural county in Colorado. I have been a clinician for 4 years but I have been in the social work field for 10 years. Through the years I have worked in many different settings including schools, residential treatment centers, group homes, juvenile justice programs, child welfare and adult protection and correctional facilities. Having a wide range of experience has helped me gain insight to the difficulties people have across our life span and this has been priceless in my development as a therapist.
My approach is to start where you are. I want you to identify what concerns you most and what goals you hope to achieve for yourself. Using a person centered model has been vital in my work with children, youth, adults and elderly individuals. I want you to talk about the perceptions and realities of your life to guide me in providing care that is unique to your needs. After all no one knows YOU like YOU! This approach allows me to empower, encourage, teach and learn from you. This does not mean that you won’t be challenged or pushed out of your comfort zone. Some discomfort is necessary for interpersonal growth to happen; but there is a difference between discomfort and distress. It is my goal to work with you through your struggles and successes while maintaining your personal and emotional safety.
Therapy is more than just the individual person, it is how you interact with the world around you, with your family, with peers, co-workers, etc… Lets face it families are messy, relationships are messy, human beings are messy and life is messy. Learning to effectively function in our environment helps us feel connected, loved and whole. To accomplish this I use a variety of techniques from CBT, DBT, IFS, EMDR, experiential therapies and trauma interventions to uniquely tailor treatment to fit the individual in front of me. There is no “one size fits all” in therapy and treatment should be molded to each and every person.
I look forward to meeting you and beginning our work together!
