 My therapy practice is informed from a depth perspective and in an attachment-focused framework.  I integrate practical skills, somatic work and soul inquiry to help with integration of one’s whole self. My work joins the forces of the functional with the creative in order to arrive at a new and more workable understanding of self and relationships.

Since graduating from Pacifica Graduate Institute in 2015, I have been cultivating my therapeutic practices in and out of agencies. I have worked in a transitional program for young adults, AIM House, going on 6 years. The program is structured to help guide young people on garnering enough ego strength to forge a path of independence, while also staying connected and building community. I also worked with their families in assisting with the individuation process through parent coaching and extensive family systems work through an attachment-focused lens. I gained a great deal of wisdom in working with addictions at this program as well and learned creative ways to help the soul find its path again through Jungian informed practices and somatic work.

I have been in private practice for going on 7 years. My practice encompasses work with individuals, couples and families and has included a variety of age ranges. In meeting with such an array of unique individuals and tailoring to what they need along the way, I have deepened greatly into various aspects of psychology. Over the past 2 years, I have been integrating Sensorimotor Psychotherapy into my practice. I have found this somatic-centered and mindfulness practice to be powerful in my work with trauma and attachment injury. By addressing the physical, as well as the psychological effects of adverse experience on mind and body, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy supports a deep, effective, and unified approach to healing.

I am passionate about and have deep respect for the therapeutic process. I truly believe it takes great courage to enter into the depths of ourselves and appreciate the opportunity to be a witness and learn along the way. Carl Jung sums it up well, “the meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances; if there is any reaction, both are transformed”. Creating connection through authentic relationship and approaching others with deep respect and curiosity is at the heart of all the work I do.

Connection, understanding, growth, empowerment and fulfillment are basic human needs.  We are naturally hardwired to relate.  When we have these the possibilities are vast and we thrive!  But when we feel disconnected, misunderstood, stuck, and empty, it feels painful and isolating.  We are left yearning for relief, resources and restoration.  In the end we want a sense of balance and sustainability.

I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor that practices in Boulder, Colorado.  I bring a warm, kind, gentle approach to therapy to establish trust, and build a relationship that allows for the supportive you need to progress through your growth.  I use a variety of approaches that tailor to your strengths, creativity and passions for you to get the most out of your journey.

Education Background:
I earned a Bachelor’s of Arts in History from the University of Colorado at Boulder and a Master’s of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Denver Seminary. During my graduate program, I participated in a yearlong internship with Providence Network working with individuals and families coming out of homelessness, and provided counseling services to children and moms rebuilding from domestic violence, as well as group therapy for men recovering from addictions.   Since attaining my licensure, I have continuously sought further education and trainings to enhance my practice, and be a better provider of care to clients.

Work Background:
For two years post-graduation, I provided in-home therapy services and led behavioral coaches as we worked extensively with a variety of families, adolescents, and children in the foster system with histories of trauma, abuse, dependency and neglect. I have been in private practice since 2015. I have experience working with the family as a whole, as well as with each individual family member to meet their needs in seeking healing. In addition, I am a full time Youth Pastor where I continue to work with kids and make a difference in the community.

Child and Adolescent Development, Parenting, Depression, Anxiety, EMDR, Adjustment and Transitions, Self-Esteem, Emotional Intelligence, Childhood work

You’re looking for answers. You’re hurting and exhausted. You’re doing the work but barely hanging on. You’ve considered medications but you don’t want to be a zombie, gain weight, have sexual side effects, or be hooked on medications for years. You just want to feel like you again. 

You want help for your child but you don’t want them to have side effects or get addicted to something. Psychiatrists are unapproachable and your teen won’t go to the appointments because they don’t feel like the prescriber gets who they are. You’re looking for help but the soonest appointment is months away.

You want someone who knows what they’re doing and follows the evidence but is also a great listener and really works to understand the problem. They’ll work with your therapist and consider novel approaches, not just pull out a prescription pad.

Years of Training, Experience, and Dedication to Mental Wellness

I am a board-certified child and family psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner, trained at the University of California, San Francisco and licensed in Colorado and California. I diagnose psychiatric disorders and prescribe psychiatric medications to individuals of all ages.

I began working in mental health in 2000 and have been practicing psychiatry since 2012. Before prescribing, I worked with adolescents in residential and wilderness programs, provided drug and alcohol counseling, and individual and group therapy to children and adults.

I love what I do and am honored to be part of the process with people who are looking for change. Although I am a prescriber, I do not meet with pharmaceutical drug representatives and I pursue evidence-based continuing medical education free from corporate sponsorship so that I stay current with what will help you, not what will make the pharmaceutical companies more money.

My Approach to Prescribing Psychiatric Medications

Individuals of all races, religions, genders, orientations, cultures, and abilities are welcome here. This is your body and your process. I am committed to you feeling heard, cared for and supporting you in achieving your mental health goals. I am not committed to prescribing you medications. If it’s likely that you can feel better without using psychiatric medications, then we can talk about how to make that happen and I’ll be here if you need me down the road.

During the assessment I will be working to learn about you, your history, what is bothering you, what you have already tried, and what you want to be different. We will discuss a wide variety of options to help you achieve your goals. If medications are recommended, we will create a wellness plan that integrates medications and support from non-pharmaceutical interventions such as exercise, sleep hygiene, spiritual practices, creative methods, social involvement, and psychotherapy with a therapist, psychologist, or licensed counselor. This complimentary approach to treatment serves to create a solid foundation for lasting change and efficient reduction in symptoms.

How I Work: Have you ever had the experience of talking with a helping professional but feeling like nothing is really happening? Have you found yourself in the same painful and infuriating loops over and over again in your relationships and work, patterns that threaten to erode self-confidence and the feeling that life can improve?

What advances in neuroscience demonstrate empirically is that we need immediate and visceral experiences of connection in the here-and-now to alter our brains and nervous system. This understanding is at the cornerstone of my stylistic approach. Working with me, you will find a therapist with over ten years of experience dedicated to listening deeply & non-judgmentally as well as challenging unconscious patterns that limit your growth and access to new experiences. You will leave sessions feeling more emotionally validated, psychologically organized, and ready to take actionable steps to move your life forward.

Specialty Treatment Areas:  Throughout my career I have had the opportunity to work with a highly diverse group of people across a number of stages of life. These challenges have included:

  • Perfectionism
  • Eating Disorders
  • Substance Abuse & Addiction
  • Trauma/ Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Anxiety/ Panic Attacks
  • Depression
  • Sex & Love Addiction/Codependency
  • ADD/ ADHD
  • Self-Harm
  • Suicidal Ideation
  • Rage Attacks
  • Impulse Control
  • Adolescent Challenges
  • Transitioning Young Adult Challenges
  • Executive Functioning Issues
  • Parenting Conflicts
  • Emotional Regulation Issues
  • Family Discord

Individuals Psychotherapy: One-to-one counseling can serve as an incredibly powerful launching pad for personal growth and life change. With an extensive training background that includes both behavioral interventions and psychodynamic approaches, I will partner with you to determine the individualized approach that will most deeply and comprehensively address the changes you are wanting for your life and well-being.

Family Work: How frequently do we find that the people we are closet to are often the hardest to reach or get us at our worst? Taking a deeply systemic and attachment oriented approach, I work with the family as a whole to understand the underlying blocks to emotional communication as well as to empower each member to express and ask for what they need. For over ten years, I have made a focal point of my practice helping families find ways to say the unsayable and work through issues surrounding trauma, substance abuse, divorce, and secrecy.

Groups: Do you ever find yourself gravitating to the same roles in your relationships with friends and colleagues? Do you long for genuine feedback about how others experience you and to identify ways you can be more effective in relationship? Group psychotherapy is singular in its ability to powerfully address and repair deep, unconscious patterns of relating. Using a here-and-now approach, I work as a group leader to create a culture where thoughts and feelings can be put into words and shared in a constructive way leading to interpersonal growth. It is understandably that many people find group psychotherapy intimidating. I will be happy to meet with you to determine if this could be a helpful next step in your personal evolution. Once within a group, you will be invited to take risks, experiment with new ways of being and communicating, and to anchor these changes in the lived experience of relating in the here-and-now.
