My Approach to Helping

I have always been passionate about helping others achieve their goals and helping them to reclaim their bliss. Sometimes we get lost in the monotony of our day-to-day, and I am here to remind you that you are in control of your BLISS!

I truly enjoy working with children, teens, families, and couples. My therapeutic style focuses on the needs of the person or system to build a treatment plan to best suit you and your loved one's needs. You will always be the director of your own treatment plan but I am here to guide you in a direction that feels most genuine to you. I believe that individuals and families have solutions within themselves, they sometimes just lose sight of the next best step to take. I guide you and assist you to take the next right step towards success, instead of looking at the metaphorical "mountain" you may see or feel burdened by in front of you.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and hold a master's degree in social work from University of Denver. I am a Licensed Addiction Counselor (LAC), a Certified School Social Worker, and trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I hold certification in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).

I utilize a combination of evidenced-based therapies including CBT, DBT, EMDR, and MI along with other skill & somatic based interventions. I help individuals and families to find inner peace and strength to renew their view on life.
