GET TO KNOW ME

Growing up in Colorado, I sought serenity  and comfort in nature and found connection with my family and friends  by spending time with them outdoors in the mountains. From an early age, I knew that I wanted to help others to find this same sense of calm and connection wherever they may be.
In order to achieve this goal, I received my Bachelor of Art in Psychology followed by a Master of Art in Marriage and Family Therapy. I have been comprehensively trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) for both teens and adults as well as received training in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. 
I am currently a fully licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (109606) and have experience in utilizing both DBT and Mindfulness strategies with individuals, couples, and families, as well as facilitating groups for adults and teens. 
I am passionate about helping others to find a deeper understanding of themselves in order to create long-term change to alleviate stress, overwhelming emotions, and to effectively cope with mood disorders, personality disorders, and interpersonal challenges.

 

A BIT ABOUT THERAPY

Personalized Attention for All Your Needs

I implement Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Mindfulness approaches to instill self-acceptance among
teens (16+) and adults and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the client and family system alike. In the end, making small changes to self-defeating behavior and coping with feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results.
