About Me

Hello! Please Note: I would like to extend my expertise in treating trauma to those who have been affected by recent shooting at Club Q in Colorado Springs. Please reach out for help, you don't have to go it alone.



I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, a certified addictions counselor, and Licensed Professional Counselor with over 35 years of experience working in a variety of clinical settings and diverse populations. As of recent, I have been incorporating into my traditional practice, alternatives to treatment as a Preparation and Integration Specialist. I have a very special interest in assisting our Veterans, First Responders, Law Enforcement and their families regarding trauma informed care/PTSD. I sincerely believe that addressing any trauma struggles in a manner that the client finds beneficial, will also assist with anxiety, depression, relationship and addiction issues. I work to provide a safe space for my clients to address issues in order to feel better and to promote the acquisition of a skill set for future problem solving. I would love to work with you if you are a resident of Colorado, USA.

My therapeutic approach is a mix of philosophies, techniques and styles which I feel have been effective in my 35 years of experience as a clinician. I believe that something unique to my practice is the idea that education around what is troubling us is valuable; for example, becoming familiar with how PTSD effects our Central Nervous System and so forth. I believe knowledge is power and I hope to empower my clients to live happier, fuller lives.

First time meeting with her I was very nervous of the virtual part in all of this, but we hit it off amazingly. She was exactly what I was looking for in a therapist and more along with a great connection. She was willing to hear me and proving new insight to various struggles and challenges me to hold myself accountable.
