I believe therapy provides us with an opportunity to gain new skills, to think about the world and ourselves differently, to alleviate distress, to reflect on and change our behavior, and to be more fully seen and understood. At times, therapy requires difficult and uncomfortable conversations, exploring things that we would rather not, and having a witness to parts of ourselves we want to hide. The work we do in therapy allows us to meet this discomfort with validation and support. I believe relationships shape and define us: the foundational attachments of our childhood, the social and familial connections of our present, and most importantly our relationship with ourselves. A trusting and non-judgmental relationship between you and I will foster the change you seek. I will create a safe and supportive place for you to be vulnerable and honest. I will meet your openness with compassion and accountability.
I have experience working with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, substance abuse, trauma, family conflict, crisis intervention, suicidality, and issues related to gender identity and sexual orientation. I rely on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing with a trauma informed and relational lens.
Outside of work I enjoy taking my dog for walks, going to the movies, reading for book club, and spending time with family. I grew up in Colorado, and I am grateful to live and work in a place I love.
