My Approach to Helping
I earned my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Metropolitan State University of Denver, and my Master’s degree in Social Work from Texas Tech University. Currently I am working towards obtaining my Clinical Social Work licensure. I am passionate about working with adults struggling with addiction, anxiety, depression, grief loss, and religious or faith-based trauma. I also have years of experience in helping those struggling with substance abuse disorders as well as co-occurring disorders, both in inpatient and outpatient settings. I utilize a humanistic approach to therapy primarily focusing on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness. I believe in the importance of working with my clients to create an individualized treatment plan that will allow clients to create their best life; a life of peace, love, and joy. I love helping people create, and tap into their true potential in a safe judgment-free space.
In my free time when not working, I am spending time with my wife and daughter. I love motorcycles and have been riding one since 14 years-old. I love the outdoors and connecting with nature in various ways. I love flowers and plants and my ideal office would be located inside of a tropical greenhouse. I also love bees and beekeeping, pit bulls, laughing, and connecting authentically with others.
