I am a native of Colorado and am a licensed clinical social worker and a licensed marriage and family therapist. I respect all aspects of people including race, ethnicity, gender expression, sexual orientation, socio-economic background, age, religion, and ability. I like to think that my office is a safe place to work on the things that are important to you. I enjoy the outdoors and traveling when I am not at work.
Populations: Adults, Families, Seniors. Specialties: Anxiety, Bipolar, Depression, LGBT, Transgender, Grief and Loss, Mood Disorders. Interventions: CBT and Family Systems. My specialties include couple's therapy, family therapy, and individual therapy. I most enjoy working with adults and to help people to improve their relationships. I am also a transgender specialist in our clinic and enjoy working with the LGBTQ community. I am direct but easy going in a non-judgmental environment. I respect my patients as partners in maintaining their mental health. I am genuinely interested in people and helping them to create the life they feel would provide the most fulfillment. Electronic medical records help me to see the big picture of a patient's health, so I can make good use of our time together and answer my patient's questions. I trust other Kaiser Permanente providers to take excellent care of my patients if I'm not available.
My hobbies are traveling, running, biking and working out in general. I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I also love music, food, movies and learning about different cultures.
