General Work Orientation 

 

I work with individual adults, young adults/students, and couples. My practice encompasses psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, relationship counseling, clinical supervision, and clinical mentoring. Our work together may range from CBT/DBT type problem-solving to more in-depth exploration in order to resolve long-standing issues or identifications.

 

I typically take a comprehensive approach with the aim of exploring, dismantling, and resolving repetitive patterns that interfere with your life desires and goals — unless a short-term counseling/cognitive approach is needed.  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 the CU campus. I offer free 15-minute phone consultations. When you decide we will work together, I offer per-session pricing and session package pricing.

 

Individual Adults

 

I specialize in working with people who are good at solving complex, often technical problems; people who have curiosity and enjoy their minds, expertise, and accomplishments. Because expertise requires enormous headspace, focus, and many hours every day, emotions are often experienced as interfering with the work at hand. If this is the case, you might sometimes suffer from relationship problems, loneliness, anxiety, perfectionism, OCD, or depression. 

 

Like problem-solving needed for complex technical problems, when recurring painful emotional or relational problems are sufficiently analyzed and understood, they will be alleviated or resolved. 

 

As we talk together and assess whats going on, new ways to proceed and new ways to orient will surface, emotionally and practically.

  

Young Adults (Students/Professionals)

 

Young adults often encounter challenging life situations and difficult decisions. Whatever difficulties you may be experiencing, such as anxiety, social anxiety, loneliness, gender issues, isolation, depression, or family issues, there is help to be had. Finding a safe and dependable place to talk things through will help you gain clarity to navigate your future.

 

As we thoughtfully explore your situation, youll not be alone with it.  Your mind will not be relegated to being alone with no apparent way forward. I help you put your thoughts and feelings into words, i.e., on the table,” so you can clearly see them.  As your understanding increases, you will make steady progress determining and implementing what you want and dont want on the table” for your present and your future.

 

Relationship Work

 

Do you feel misunderstood in your relationship?  Do you feel lonely in your marriage?  Are there too many arguments? Is there too much silence?  Is there a reluctance to talk? Do you fear being vulnerable? Do you infuse negative patterns from your past into your current relationship and dont know how to stop?

 

When we experience relentless feelings of hurt, anger, or resentment, we are physiologically affected. Stress responses kick in and exacerbate anxiety, affecting our heart rate, our breathing, our sleep; we ruminate, gear up for battle, and cant imagine how or where to find relief. 

 

To get relief from these kinds of toxic feelings they must be off-loaded. 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, container, and relationship with a trained and trusted clinician who can meet you where you are and work to get where you need to go, without external influences from family and friends.

 

When you feel seen, heard, and understood, you will feel better and strategically navigate every relationship and every interaction.

 

In each session you will get practical help and learn how to establish boundaries, how to communicate, and how to position yourself to your advantage.

 

Psychedelic Integration:

 

Psychedelic therapies (MDMA, Ketamine, LSD, Psilocybin, Ayahuasca) can help provide relief or help expand and explore your levels of 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.

Education/Training

 

I’m a Nationally Certified Psychoanalyst and I’ve been in private practice for over 30 years.

 

Following graduate work at the University of Houston and Rice University, I pursued contemporary analytic training through the Colorado Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies and the Philadelphia School of Psychoanalysis. I have been a training analyst for the Philadelphia School of Psychoanalysis for 16 years.  

 

I very much enjoy my work and the people who come to see me.  I invite you to call me at 303.547.8493. Again, I offer free 15-minute consultations and when you decide we will work together, I offer per session pricing and session package pricing and convenient payment plans.

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.
