Where I practice
Like many transplants, I fell in love with Colorado for the overall beauty and quality of life. I'm originally from the east coast and moved to Colorado for graduate school. Helping patients overcome the trials and tribulations of life is a passion of mine.
About my practice
Populations: Adult. Specialties: Anxiety, Bipolar, Depression, Grief and Loss, Mood Disorders, PTSD, Substance Abuse, Trauma, and other chronic conditions. Interventions: CBT, DBT, and EMDR. I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC), licensed addiction counselor (LAC) and I specialize in eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. Mindfulness is emphasized heavily in my practice. Whether patients and I are utilizing a cognitive behavioral approach or EMDR therapy, being in the moment helps foster the most healing possible. I look forward to educating patients on the benefits of mental health and wellness. I believe in the "It takes a village" philosophy and count on my colleagues to help ensure our patients are receiving the best care possible. I work as a team with our specialists, pharmacists and others to coordinate my patients' care. My goal is to provide the most appropriate care for my patients, so they aren't spending extra time or money to get the care they deserve. I believe we are all fundamentally good and fostering our strengths is a major part of overcoming our past.
How I thrive
My hobbies outside of work include; spending time with family, fishing, and working outdoors.
