As a staff clinician, I enjoy a mix of individual appointments and groups. I see students for individual therapy for a wide range of reasons, from anxiety and depression to trauma resolution to eating disorders to relational problems, and everything in between. I also co-facilitate groups, including a coping skills group to help those struggling to find balance in their lives (the "Finding Balance" (DBT) Skills Group) and "Support for Survivors" Group, which provides a safe and caring place to receive support for those who have experienced sexual violence. I love what I do, and I can't imagine doing anything else!
I Can Help You With
Healing from all kinds of trauma, from experiencing sexual or domestic violence, hate crimes, emotional abuse and/or other forms of violence, to bullying and family issues. I can help you learn to set boundaries, improve coping skills, and overall feel more happiness and satisfaction in your life. I also work with eating disorders, and can help work through body image, eating, and exercise difficulties. I offer help with relational and identity work – things like difficulties with low self-esteem and discovering what’s important to you, the kind of person you want to be, having a voice, and enjoying what you are passionate about. I enjoy incorporating spirituality into healing when it’s important to my client.
I am a fur mom – I have two cats named Romeo and Juliet, and a rescued retired racing greyhound named Adam. I also foster kittens through a local rescue. They bring me endless laughter and hilarity with their antics. I love to get lost in the mountains or at the beach, hike 14ers, travel around the world, try new foods, and go on adventures around Colorado. I’m very social, and spend as much time as possible with the people I love. I am also a U2 superfan – I see them on every tour at least twice.
