About Me

Welcome and thank you for taking the time to read my page! I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Colorado. I have over 8 years experience working with individuals, couples, and families struggling with symptoms of mental health stemming from exposure to trauma, such as abuse and neglect, domestic violence, substance abuse, post-traumatic stress Disorder (PTSD), to school and family issues. Primary duties include conducting intake evaluations of children and adolescents, assuming primary responsibility for treatment, provision of individual and family therapy, and strength-based parenting. My formal trainings include: EFT (emotion focused therapy), TFCBT (trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy), and PMT-O (parent management training). I support my clients in creating a safe space to discuss thoughts and feelings freely without fear of judgment. Come as you are, I believe that beginning where the client is at in the treatment process is key to a successful and beneficial therapeutic experience. My goal is to build upon what is working well in the client's life and collaborate with my clients to address the needs that they feel should be addressed in a way that they feel comfortable with.

I look forward to meeting and working with you!
