I have had the privilege of walking beside those in the throws of personal turbulence resulting from a myriad of circumstances. Through these encounters, I have become aware of the incredible importance of building a relationship and providing a safe place for influence to be accepted, and for change to occur. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Certified Addiction Counselor (Level) III, who specializes in helping families, couples, and individuals navigate through difficult terrain regardless of their spiritual beliefs or their sexual orientation. I don't proclaim to be an expert in all types of circumstances, instead I am very clear where my expertise lie so you can find the best match and receive the most appropriate help. The majority of my professional life as a therapist has been spent being of service to those managing these situations:
-- Individuals, couples, and families faced with drug and alcohol related problems, including codependency, enmeshment, and co-morbidity issues
-- Individuals and couples faced with infertility or undergoing infertility treatment
-- Couples interested in marital or premarital counseling
-- Those struggling to cope with stress, anxiety and/or feelings of being overwhelmed
-- Previous trauma and how it can affect the individual as well as the family system
-- Those struggling with motivation and/or self esteem issues
-- Those struggling to cope with major life changes
Colorado has deemed me an expert in addiction, able to supervise less experienced clinicians. I am a Level 1 Gottman Method Couples Therapist-currently undergoing Level 2, and I have completed the Family Trauma Professional Intensive Training. I am always striving to hone my skills and expertise to be of value to my clients.
Besides the initials behind my name or the years of experience I have, you can expect me to be fully invested and dedicated. You can expect to feel listened to and cared about. You can expect there to be kind words and moments of humor. You can expect me to guide you or lean in, depending on what will be required of me in your moments of resistance. I look forward to being of service if you decide I am the right choice.
