My practice focuses on a mind, body, and spirit approach to psychotherapy. I pride myself on concentrating on what is right with my clients, as opposed to what is wrong. I place a high priority on shining a light on my clients’ best self as I appreciate that we are all magnificently unique individuals.
Nurturing wellness is my most essential motivation. I am trained in traditional methods of psychotherapy, specifically in cognitive behavioral therapy and in treatments for depression and anxiety, trauma, and loss. I have helped my clients to reach their personal goals while utilizing these therapeutic approaches. I am delighted to be able to combine traditional methods of intervention with intuitive and energy healing. Clients can expect sessions with me to be filled with hope, trust, warmth, and humor.
I specialize in treating changes throughout a lifetime while providing support through the natural ebbs and flows that we encounter along the way. Clients who work with me develop sustainable wellness management skills that can be utilized throughout a person’s lifespan.
I hold a Ph.D. in Child, Family and School Psychology and a Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work. I enjoy speaking in the community and have won the Impact on Education award for the Boulder Valley School District. I have also been an Adjunct Professor at the University of Denver College of Education. My development of a social-emotional curriculum is used in elementary schools today to emphasize parents as mentors teaching their children social-emotional skills while in school. I also supervise PhD students working with in-home treatments for people with anxiety disorders.
I reside in Boulder, Colorado where I can often be found hiking in the mountains with my goldendoodle, Rozy.
