About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with 25 years of experience. I hold a current license in Colorado and soon will be licensed in Arizona. During my career I have counseled a variety of clients in a variety of settings both in the US and Mexico. While I have experience in all areas of mental health, my most recent specialities are treating anxiety and stress, adults abused as children, the spectrum of mood disorders (depression and bi-polar), addiction, and chronic health issues. I have a collaborative, client centered approach. I offer a variety of interventions depending on your needs. My approach is focused on you, I take your lead but can nudge if I think it will be helpful. Clients tell me I am a mindful listener, compassionate, and engaging. I offer a flexible schedule with whatever mode of communication suits you best. In the first few sessions I always ask "how will you know counseling has been helpful?", "what will be different, what will you notice?". Then we can make goals from there. I respect you for asking for help. I will honor your time commitment and use our time efficiently and wisely. I look forward to working with you.
