About me

Thank you for seeking counseling for yourself. I look forward to getting to know you and working with you in a professional capacity. Please note: BetterHelp is not technically regulated by HIPPA because they are not a covered entity under the statute.

I have been a licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Colorado for 16 years. I am only available to work with clients who reside in the state of Colorado per my licensing board DORA. Per client request and availability ~sessions are 45 minutes in length. If you need to cancel please make ever effort to do so 24 hours in advance. This allows others to possibly use this time slot for their sessions if you can't attend your session. Typically, clients who meet weekly on a regular basis are able to work on therapeutic goals. Please note, due to weather the internet may not be available, when this happens, I ask that you reschedule your appointment and I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. If you are in a crisis, please go to the nearest ER, and or use the hotline numbers listed on the BetterHelp website.
My counseling approaches utilize several counseling theories that are customized to meet your needs. I believe that by treating each client with respect, honor, sensitivity and compassion a working therapeutic alliance can be formed as we interact with one another.

I believe and honor the courage you are using to seek a more satisfying and happier life. You have taken the first steps towards change and if you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
