From the time I was a child, I’ve felt drawn to helping others. I have a strong understanding of how difficult it is to face personal struggles and how challenging it can be to make a change. Reaching out for help is a sign of strength! And making a change, although difficult, can be liberating!
I strive to meet each client where they are. Therapy sessions are customized to your individual needs and can include goal setting, exploring patterns of behavior, and mindfulness work. I approach my work from a strengths-based perspective; that is, I believe that we all have the resources within ourselves to increase understanding and compassion and to create change. I am truly honored to be by your side in times of difficulty as well as times of hope and transition.
I work with clients with a variety of mental health concerns. Some areas special interest include anxiety, depression, reproductive mental health, concerns of pregnancy and parenthood, relationship problems, grief and loss, trauma, stress-reduction, and navigating life transitions. I am Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) trained and incorporate EMDR therapy when desired and appropriate.
When I’m not in my office, I enjoy spending time with my husband and young children. I was raised in Colorado and enjoy all things outdoors! I received my Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Denver in 2008 and have had the honor of helping people access their strengths ever since.
