My Approach to Helping
The COVID-19 pandemic has upended much of what we consider normal. Family disruption, job disruption and racial reckoning have likely impacted you and the people that you care about. To help you navigate through these times, I provide telehealth services to anyone residing in Colorado. I work with couples dealing with relationship stress, families wanting to learn ways to structure themselves in a COVID world andor with professionals how are navigating work and job challenges.
In my years as a clinical and child psychologist, I have striven to be culturally humble, respectful and competent. I will work with you to ensure that all aspects of your identity (e.g., race, gender, class LGBTQIA status, etc.) are viewed from a place of strength.
More Info About My Practice
I earned by doctorate in Clinical Psychology and Developmental Psychology in 1997 from the University of Iowa. I initially became interested in psychology to better understand why groups are treated differently and how that difference in treatment impacts us emotionally. Throughout my career, I have worked to help people create structures and systems that are just and equitable. For example, my experiences in KG-University education settings, I have been a leader in helping school districts increase their focus on increased mental health supports for students. I currently provide tele-health only services that are available to anyone residing in Colorado.
My Therapy Focus
I view therapy from a strengths-based lens. Based on your unique attributes (e.g., race, gender, age, class, etc.), I examine how these can be leveraged as strengths in order to help you address the challenges impacting your life. This is especially important for many of us who may have been taught to minimize our uniqueness.
