I am a Colorado native, although I haven't always lived here. I've also lived in Wisconsin, Kentucky, and even Scotland, but I always come back to Colorado! I have two small children at home, so I currently work part time. My family loves to be outdoors, so we spend a lot of time in the mountains camping and hiking.
Populations: Adult, Family, Group, Seniors, Teens. Specialties: Anxiety, Depression, Grief and Loss, Mood Disorders, OCD, Parenting, Personality Disorders, PTSD, Transgender, and Trauma. Interventions: CBT, DBT, EMDR, and Mindfulness. I work with individuals ages 13 and older, as well as with couples and families. I am trained in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) as well as EMDR, which is a treatment for trauma-related symptoms. I am very excited about the positive research into mindfulness approaches and enjoy implementing those with my patients. I try to really get to know each of my patients. I like to collaborate to determine what treatment plan will work best for each member, couple, or family that I see. 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 am lucky to have the opportunity to work part-time, which really allows me to balance my personal and professional lives! I trust other Kaiser Permanente providers to take excellent care of my patients if I'm not available. I find that exercise is key for me to manage stress and stay healthy.
