My foundation as a clinician comes from the person-centered approach. I subscribe to the core conditions of therapy, which are genuineness, unconditional positive regard (acceptance and respect), and accurate empathic understanding. My foundation is built around having a health therapeutic relationship with clients. I meet everyone where they’re at in their healing journey and ensure safety in the therapy space. I assist clients in processing their emotions and thoughts as they develop insight and awareness around their mental health. I also take time to develop tools and strategies that assist in coping with stressors. I provide compassion, understanding, and empowerment in every session.

As a trauma informed therapist, I use evidence-based practices to ensure healing during your therapy work, such as CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy). For trauma focused therapy I implement EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) for adults. For children and adolescents, I implement TF-CBT (Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy).

I believe therapy is driven and paced by the client, and that everyone is deserving of healing.

I grew up in a rural community in Missouri about 50 miles west of St. Louis. I obtained my Masters in Counseling in St. Louis from Webster University in 2011. I am licensed professional counselors (LPC) in Colorado and Missouri. My husband and I moved to Colorado in 2020 and welcomed a sweet baby boy into our family in 2021. In my free time I enjoy exploring Colorado with my family and learning new hobbies. I’m in love with the beautiful sunsets and mountain views Northern Colorado has to offer.

Clinical interest for patients

I am passionate about healing trauma. I enjoy learning new approaches to healing trauma and assisting clients to progress from surviving to thriving. The term trauma is a relative term, trauma can be anything that is traumatic to an individual. Understanding how our traumas impact us can shed light on our healing journey.
