Great to meet you!

I received my graduate degree from University of Colorado at Denver in Counseling Psychology and Counselor Education. I first became an LPC in Colorado. My training and practical experience has been eclectic, touching on approaches including humanistic (relation- centered), action-centered, cognitive behavioral, narrative, and somatic. I also attend to family, social-cultural, and socioeconomic context. More recently my focus includes the impact of trauma.

A bit about my approach to therapy

Every person has the natural capacity and tendency to heal and return to a healthy equilibrium. A person considering counseling is already making the first step of exercising that tendency. I believe that “loosening up” and releasing the many things we hold, particularly unconsciously, allow us to activate that capacity and reach a healthier state of being. Top-down, it is about "figuring out". Bottom-up, it is noticing and feeling.

What you can expect from our first session

"Notice". This experience is such a crucial starting point for clients that I strive to help clients reach that noticing depending what they are already close to and also what my intuition senses is important. From there, we touch upon the specific actions and changes to enact.
