Be without judgement. Be without fear. Without fear, accomplishments are limitless.
After over 20 years in the field of psychology and social work, I still feel a passion for the work I provide to my clients as well as continuing to develop my personal and professional skills. I enjoy working with adults and adolescents in all capacities. Witnessing the transformation as people move from wounded, unbalanced and fearful, to becoming empowered, focused and self-reliant is one of the greatest rewards. The power of growth never fails to amaze me, and I am grateful to be part of your journey.
Completing my Bachelor of Science at Colorado State University in 1993, I moved to California where I worked in a juvenile hall as a group counselor. Maintaining that position, I also helped open a long-term, inpatient, adult, psychiatric hospital working as a social worker. I entered the Masters of Social Work Program at California State University, San Bernardino and held internships at Riverside County Mental Health working with children, families and adults. After graduating with an MSW, I moved back to Colorado and took a position at Ft. Logan Mental Health inpatient Adolescent unit. Working toward eventually opening a private practice, I worked at Mines and Associates as a counselor providing individual, couples and family therapy for children, adolescents and adults. During this time, I also worked at Southwest Family Therapy where I conducted a court-ordered, domestic violence, men's group and women's group.
I opened the doors to private practice in 2002 and have been providing counseling to individuals, couples, families for people ages 15 and up using a cognitive- behavioral, solution-focused approach. Areas of expertise include anxiety, depression, relationships and trauma. Goals and tools that are tailored to your individual needs will be offered to take with you as I believe that much of the progress made, occurs outside of our counseling sessions.
In 2011, I became a Yoga Fit certified yoga instructor. I am additionally offering a very cutting-edge opportunity in my practice combining psychotherapy and yoga. The combination of mind, body and spirit has proven to allow for maximum life- changes. I am very excited about beginning this new aspect which is available to individuals as well as in group seminars.
