My goal is to help you flourish in life! We will look at where you are in mind, body, and spirit and where you want to be and then work together to reach your goals. I am experienced in working with adults, couples, and adolescents, in the areas of addiction, trauma, depression, anxiety, and more severe psychological issues.

More Info About My Practice

My basic rate for therapy is $90 per hour for individual therapy and $120 per hour for couples/family therapy. Sliding scale rates are available under special circumstances. I do not currently take insurance, but will provide a receipt that can be used to submit for possible reimbursement from your insurance carrier.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I am a retired member of the Air Force, the son of a retired member of the Army, and the parent of a former Marine, so I understand the unique stressors that military members and their families experience.

I am trained in EMDR for treating trauma and am a Licensed Addiction Counselor in Colorado. I also have experience and training in mindfulness meditation and hypnotherapy.

I have experience working with people suffering from relationship problems, addictions, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. I have a particular affinity for working with adolescents, having experience both from the therapeutic side as well as the educational side (I am currently a part-time science teacher at a local high school).

My View on the Nature of 'Disorders'

While I understand that when working with insurance it is necessary to diagnose a specific mental health disorder, I truly believe that problems we may be struggling with are merely that: problems. Working together we can find the basis of those problems and find solutions to get you to the level of functioning that you desire to be at. Problems with how we think and feel have a biological piece but they are much more than that and can often be treated more effectively with techniques other than medication.
