About me

My passion has always been related to serving others. My goal is to provide a safe space for you to share your story and to walk beside you as we navigate your past, present, and future. I strive to instill hope by discovering insights, exploring your goals, and developing solutions together that I can guide you in accomplishing.

Circumstances of our life or our experiences can sometimes leave us feeling alone, betrayed, hurt, vulnerable, anxious, angry, and any other combination of feelings that can feel overwhelming. I’m here to serve as a guide in exploring your experiences with a reflective lens so that we can learn from those and identify ways we can help you grow to your fullest potential.

~About Me and My Background:
I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master’s in Professional Counseling, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Colorado. Holding a variety of memberships in professional counseling organizations, I’m always striving to learn and apply techniques that will most benefit my clients. From a young age, I discovered I was always highly aware of the emotions of those around me and had an innate ability to understand those emotions on a deeper level. As a natural empath, I have spent my life trying to expand my knowledge and understanding of people through listening past just the words spoken.

After serving in the Air Force for 12 years, I turned my focus to serving others as a counselor who could use my life experiences and training to guide others to a healthier and more fulfilled life. As a combat veteran, there are also unique aspects of the military related to families and marriage, career transition, relocation and life change stressors, crisis, and trauma that I have been blessed to assist others in navigating.

I have experience working with individuals, couples, and families, as well as children and adolescents that are struggling with such issues as depression, anxiety, communication, self-esteem, relationship issues, trauma, etc. In addition, I have had direct experience with counseling and facilitating support groups with issues surrounding infertility, miscarriage and stillbirth, unplanned pregnancies, and abortions. I also work with my clients on resilience building through relationship strengthening, confidence building, pre-marital counseling, and other goals that we identify that they would like to accomplish.

~My Approach:
Caring for your mental-health should never be thought of as a weakness. Sometimes people can just feel stuck, need another perspective of a situation, or a listening ear. I want to form a genuine and caring therapeutic relationship so that you can feel at ease and cared for. Whether I work with clients for a short time or our time is prolonged, my primary focus is on my client and specifically what they want to achieve during the time we have together.

I primarily use a combination of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Narrative Therapy to analyze a client’s story and construct new thought processes around their experiences and ways that they can overcome obstacles that they may be experiencing. I also utilize Client/Person-Centered Therapy and other techniques such as Motivational Interviewing and Mindfulness to fully understand my clients and their situations and work towards achieving a healthy balance in their lives.
