Couples (Separation/Divorce)

 

Do you feel misunderstood in your relationship, or lonely in your marriage?  Are there too many arguments? or is there too much silence? Might you sometimes think you infuse negative patterns from your past into your current relationship and don’t know how to stop?

When we experience intense and relentless feelings of hurt, anger, or resentment, we are physiologically affected. Stress response kicks in and exacerbates anxiety, affecting our heart rate, our breathing. We can’t sleep, we ruminate, we gear up for battle — and can’t imagine how to find relief. 

However, relief is possible. To get relief from these kinds of impinging toxic feelings, they must be “off-loaded.”  And healthy off-loading occurs when we talk honestly, expel, express, and no longer “hold everything together,” no longer “contain it all.”  This requires a reliable frame/relationship with a trained and trusted clinician who can meet you where you are.

When you feel seen, heard, and understood — you will have ground for feeling better in yourself and for making healthy choices in every relationship, every interaction.

And of course, in each session, as needed, you will get practical help with how to establish boundaries, how to communicate, and how to position yourself to your advantage.

I offer a free 20-minute phone consultation so you can ask me questions and find out if we are a good fit. Call me: 828.318.6283.

A helpful free resource for dealing with separation/divorce issues is Second Saturday. An online venue for the Boulder area, it meets on the second Saturday of every month. It provides legal, financial, and therapeutic expertise and the presenters are available for any questions you might have.

Individual Adults

 

I specialize in working with people who are good at solving complex, often technical problems — people who enjoy their minds and their accomplishments.  If you are this kind of person, you might sometimes suffer from loneliness, anxiety, perfectionism, OCD, depression, and/or relationship problems.

 

Not unlike complex technical problems — when painful, sometimes toxic emotional problems are sufficiently analyzed and understood, they can be sufficiently alleviated/resolved. 

 

As we talk together and assess what’s been going on — new ways to proceed, new ways to orient will begin to surface, emotionally and practically.

 

You’re welcome to contact me for a free 20-minute consult to ask questions and see if we might be a good fit.  Text or call me at 828.318.6283

 

Young Adults (Students/Professionals)

 

These days young adults face difficult decisions and life situations.  There is advantage in finding a reliable place to talk things through — so you can position yourself with clarity as you navigate your future.

 

Whatever emotional difficulties (like anxiety, social anxiety, loneliness, gender issues, isolation, depression) you may be experiencing, there is help to be had.

 

I do my best to provide an easy space to talk about what’s going on for you. As we carefully, thoughtfully, explore/examine your situation, you’ll not be alone with it.  Your mind will not be relegated to being a “closed system” where you remain alone with no way out.

My job is to help you put your thoughts and feelings into words, i.e., “on the table,” so you can see your situation more clearly.  As your understanding increases, you will make steady progress determining/implementing what you want and don’t want “on the table” — of your life.

Psychedelic Integration:

Psychedelic therapies (MDMA, Ketamine, LSD, Psilocybin, Ayahuasca) can help provide relief or help expand/explore consciousness. After a dosing experience, it is often helpful to explore, talk through, and uncover unconscious insights that are foundational for you.

Psychoanalytic-type work is optimally equipped to process your experience.

General Work Orientation 

I work short-term and long-term, depending on what’s needed and wanted — whether you need CBT-type problem-solving or more in-depth exploration to resolve long-standing issues/identifications.

We work at your pace via phone, on-screen, or in person. I am an out-of-network provider so our work together is completely private. My home office is located close to CU campus. I offer a 20-minute free consultation to see if we are a good fit.  You’re welcome to contact me:  828.318.6283.

 

About Me

 Following graduate work at the University of Houston and Rice University, I pursued in-depth modern analytic training (coursework/analysis) through the Colorado Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies and the Philadelphia School of Psychoanalysis.

I have been doing Separation/Divorce Work, Individual Psychotherapy/Analysis, and Supervision/Mentoring for over 25 years. Unless a short-term counseling/cognitive stance is called for, I take a comprehensive approach with the aim of exploring, dismantling, and resolving repetitive patterns that interfere with a persons life desires and goals.

I very much enjoy my work and the people who come to see me.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Areas of specialty:  Anxiety, depression, Mood Disorders, substance use/abuse/addiction, psychedelics and psychedelic integration, ketamine-assisted psychotherapy and integration, school related issues, failure to launch, transitional and adjustment issues, trauma.

Educational Background:  I received my undergrad degree in psychology from Lewis and Clark College in Portland Oregon and my graduate degree in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology from Naropa University in Boulder Colorado. I have completed multiple trainings including Heartmath, a yearlong somatic based trauma training, a yearlong psychedelic assisted psychotherapy training and 40hr intensive psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy specific training.

I am a Transpersonal, person-centered clinician who works collaboratively with my clients to meet them and support them at any level in their lives. I believe in the healing nature of connection and relationships, and I adjust my approach based on the needs of those sitting across from me. I utilize modalities such as talk therapy, internal family systems, motivational interviewing, brainspotting, somatic practices and mindfulness awareness practices. I also believe in the therapeutic nature of psychedelics and profound ability to help in the healing process. I am a trained psychedelic-assisted psychotherapist, ketamine-assisted psychotherapist along with preparation and integration work.

My work has spanned across two decades which has included inpatient treatment in Troutdale Oregon, detox, therapeutic mentoring and transitional living programs in Boulder Colorado and for the past 8 years I have been in private practice which is also located in Boulder.

I believe in the human spirit and in one’s innate desire to heal. Basic goodness resides in all of us and often through our life experiences or through societal interjects we lose sight of that in ourselves and in others. I believe that it is in connection to self and others that we can overcome the barriers, re-write the stories, develop the healthy coping skills and integrate all that we have learned in order to find our True Self.
