About me

Hello I am a mental health and substance use provider who has been in the field since 2009.

I implement various psychotherapy methods to instill self-understanding among patients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the patient and clinician alike. But in the end, making small changes to self-defeating behavior and coping with feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results. I want to help you love the life you live and live the life you love!

I offer substance abuse and mental health counseling. Individual, couples, and family therapy. I meet clients where they are at and work with you to achieve your goals. I am experienced in working with clients who are pre and post op for bariatric surgery, LGBTQIA+, and those who are experiencing stress/anxiety/depression due to life changes.

I generally check messages here once per day Monday-Friday and respond as quickly as I can. Please see below for you schedule and response time information.

My practice hours are as follows:
Monday's/Tuesday's: possible availability between 6:30-8p (please discuss with therapist)

Wednesday's: 6:30p-9:30p (video or Live Chat sessions only)
Possible availability for LIVE CHAT ONLY sessions between 9a-5p.

Thursday's: possible availability between 6:30-8p (please discuss with therapist)

Friday's: Unavailable

Saturday's: Unavailable

Sunday's: possible availability (please check with therapist)

I generally can respond via the chat at least once day (Monday thru Friday), sometimes more! I do try to check the chat throughout the day as my schedule permits. You can also book a live session with me ahead of time by going to my schedule and choosing an available slot that works for you. Your first appointment with me will be 30 minutes in length to meet, get needed information, and discuss therapy goals and to answer any questions you may have. Following the initial session if you choose to continue to work with me our sessions will be 30 minutes in length. I do appreciate your patience when it takes a bit longer at times to respond, as I may be in session with other clients or tending to professional/personal responsibilities. If you prefer chat counseling, please be advised that I am not available 24/7 and it may take longer at times to respond. I do try to check messages at least once a day during the hours of 9a-9p MST Monday thru Friday, any messages outside of those hours will be checked and responded to on the Next business day.

Please remember that BetterHelp (or sister site!) is not appropriate if you are in crisis or in immediate need of support. In crisis situations, please call 911 or local emergency services. You can also call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) to talk to someone right away!
