I am licensed in Colorado and Kansas with 11 years of professional work experience. I have experience working on college campuses, with police, fire and EMS, in private practice and with professional and semi-professional athletes…in fact, my specialty training is in sport psychology. I have a love and curiosity for people and enjoy navigating through solutions with my clients. I try to find the right balance between being directive and reflective and have worked for over a decade to discern which one is needed in every session to give the client what they need at any given moment in session.
In my first career, I was a trainer and worked in college sports. If you are interested in healthy behavior change, coming back from an injury or wanting to get in shape or change your fitness...we can work on that too!
