My Therapeutic Philosophy

Over the years, I've learned a great deal about what makes therapy effective.  My clients are my best teachers and I've certainly been humbled by all I don't know.  But here's what I've learned about humans, healing and personal growth: 

I believe that most of us are doing the best we can and have great intentions.  Yet, we are often hijacked by unconscious patterns and wounds that keep us from having the life and connection we want.  Thus, sometimes it takes more than "will power" and "positive thinking" to change our lives.  Sometimes we need expert guidance, mentors and groups that can hold us accountable and teach us things. 

- In practicing and studying different therapy and coaching approaches, I've learned that for therapy to be effective over time, it is essential to have a trusting, caring relationship with your therapist AND the therapeutic approach should include  brain/body based tools aimed at healing unconscious patterns, accountability and some kind of group or community support. 

- I don't believe I should ever stop growing or learning as a therapist.  There is always something more to heal and understand about myself so I can be better for my clients.  I have always been and always will be committed to my personal and professional growth.  

Education & Training

I attended Colorado College and earned an Bachelor's Degree in Psychology. In 2003, I earned a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Colorado at Denver and then earned my Colorado Licensure as a Marriage & Family Therapist (Colorado License #721). Since I have several hours of post-graduate training in working with relationships, trauma, anxiety, depression, mindfulness and overall personal growth. I have been extensively trained in brain-body based methods such as the Hakomi Method and Integrated Body Therapy. In 2016, I became a Certified Brainspotting Therapist and Consultant where I can certify other clinicians practicing Brainspotting.

I regularly study mindfulness, meditation, wellness, positive psychology, spiritual consciousness and expansiveness, ego psychology, attachment theory, somatic trauma healing, parts work  and so much more! 

Most recently I completed the coursework to become a Board Certified Coach by the College for Executive Coaching. I am in the process of completing hours for certification.

Finally, since fall of 2021, I am a student of the Ridwhan School's Diamond Approach.  This school  provides a modern day spiritual path that blends  psychology with ancient wisdoms and traditions so that people can uncover their true potential.

I meet with clients both in the my Denver office or online via a secure HIPAA client platform called Simple Practice.  Typically sessions are one hour long, though 90 minute sessions can be arranged if appropriate.  The first session together, we usually spend the time gathering information about the problem you're having, how long it's been going on, and a bit about your overall life and history.

My fee for therapy sessions is $140 per hour or you can purchase a package of 5 sessions for $650.
