I am a psychotherapist in Louisville, Colorado. I provide both in-person and virtual therapy for seniors, adults and young adults. I can assist with a variety of issues including divorce, past traumas, climate crisis related issues, and spiritual losses. I specialize in therapy for grief and loss. If you are coping with illness, caregiving, or grieving, I offer warmth, knowledge and tools that bring relief in the midst of change. It is normal that any one of these life changes can exacerbate anxiety, depression, sleep disturbance and relationship discord, among other difficulties. You can expect that I will provide full acceptance of where you are, and focus on your goals. I offer a rich array of therapeutic tools to meet those goals and support your unique process of adapting to life’s transitions.
I am grateful for the opportunity for over twenty years to have served in the non-profit sector as a hospice social worker and grief therapist in Boulder County, CO. The natural environment has been an important partner in my own healing. My therapy practice is called Song Sparrow Counseling because I love birds and because the Song Sparrow sings such a distinctive song. The journey to health and vitality is like clarifying your own beautiful song. In working through my own losses, I gained a deep respect for the uniqueness of every grief experience. I believe that people can learn to have compassion for each struggling part of themselves, and thereby liberate struggles into wellbeing. I have seen how mindfulness can be a key ingredient in that healing. Sometimes it happens quite quickly with the right support.
I live with my spouse in Lafayette, CO. When I am not providing therapy, I enjoy volunteering at her school Ziji Early Elementary, spending time with friends and family, home remodeling, playing soccer, and being with song sparrows and other creatures in the outdoors.
