Where I practice
I am originally from Minnesota, born and raised. The beauty of Colorado’s mountains drew me here for opportunity of change and growth in my career and personal life. I knew I wanted to be a therapist from a young age through my desire to understand relationships and help others. I am excited and proud to be dually licensed as both a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I have a passion for learning and understanding other cultures; currently I am studying Spanish and have been for several years to be able to serve my patients better.
About my practice
Population: adult, young adults, family, group, teens/adolescents. Specialties: ADD/ADHD, Anxiety, depression, grief and loss, parenting, life transitions, divorce/family changes, family relationships, family therapy/family systems, and trauma. Interventions: CBT, DBT, EFT, and systemic therapy. I chose to be a therapist who specializes in systemic thinking because I believe we function in relation to people and the systems of which we are part of including work, personal life, school and other areas. I work with children, adolescents, and young adults. With children and adolescents, I feel it is important to help them feel heard, understood and to find a voice for themselves; with adults, I feel it’s important to encourage empowerment and knowledge about themselves through talk therapy. My communication style is client centered where I strive to understand you and how I can support you in achieving your therapeutic goals. I enjoy including wellness and mindfulness into my practice of care. Therapy isn’t necessarily about ‘fixing’ things in your life, but rather learning to understand yourself more in the process and finding positive ways to deal with what has happened or what you are experiencing. I would be humbled to be able to walk beside you on that journey of self-discovery.
How I thrive
Aside from my professional life, I thrive on a mountain top; I find solitude and peace hiking in the mountains and climbing fourteeners. My goal is to climb all 53 of the fourteeners; so far I’ve done 33! Other passions of mine are spending time with my fiancé and our two dogs. I want to learn Spanish to better serve our population here at Kaiser Permanente. I went to Guatemala in June of 2017 to study Spanish at a school where I stayed with a local Guatemalan family to be immersed in their culture and learn the language. I still stay connected with them and hope to go back within the next few years to continue to learn. I enjoy participating in events that support the awareness of Epilepsy. A few of my other hobbies are yoga, running, baking and eating Mexican food.
