I love the individuality and unique health of my clients, how even when struggling with pain and confusion, their basic goodness is present. People bring their best efforts so far with them into therapy and we look carefully and with kindness at that history. Together we clarify needs and expectations for our time working together and we begin to increase awareness and understanding of the core self-beliefs which limit possibilities, cause sadness, anxiety, immobilization, and emotional self harm. I respectfully guide individuals and couples to study their deeply engrained patterns and increase their capacity for emotional experience and self leadership. We work collaboratively and carefully toward inner experiences and toward new awareness and choices. Many people develop an increase in self-compassion and mindfulness skills for the rest of their lives.

More Info About My Practice

I see people at two locations, Downtown Denver and Lakewood (close to Golden) during the week. On Saturdays, I see people between the hours of 9am and 1pm in my Lakewood office.

I do not take insurance because I provide therapy based solely on the needs of the client, not the insurance company. For that reason, I have a sliding scale from $80 - $120 per session. If you need a lower fee please let me know, and I can refer you to the Maria Droste intake office for a match with another qualified therapist.

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

I am drawn to working with adult men and women (and young adults) who struggle with relationships, school and work and their sense of purpose. We explore early attachment and traumatic experiences and work toward establishing trust and containment of emotional upsets while gaining awareness of inner processes and beliefs. Early experiences, such as emotional abandonment, neglect, abuse, or even a mismatch between the emotional capabilities of the parent and the needs of the child can lead to sadness, shame, lack of vitality, anxiety and depression. My skills are in providing a safe and containing environment for clients, facilitating direct experience of emotions and beliefs, and expanding the client's sense of possibility.

I see couples in my practice using an emotionally focused approach which helps each partner understand how their early attachment needs may be part of a negative interaction pattern with their partner. We work toward understanding and couples being able to soften and turn toward each other in all aspects of life. I also enjoy working with parents who are having difficulty with connection or developmental challenges with their children. Together we work to increase attunement and emotional availability, develop firm and loving structure in the home, and address other concerns around attachment due to adoption or illness, divorce and co-parenting, giftedness, or other family challenges.
