My Approach to Helping

I specialize in working with women who have experienced birth trauma, miscarriagefetal loss, and perinatal mood disorders. So many of us suffer these challenges in silence, not knowing how traumatic these tragedies are for women. My hope is to help you process, grieve, understand and eventually find a bit of acceptance, free from the guilt that unsettles so many women and mothers. Because of my own life experiences in these areas, I constantly work at creating an atmosphere for you of safety and light.

Focusing on the body, mind and spirit connection, we will explore paths to help fill any of those empty voids in your soul, with the light that is already within you. All of your needs and wants as a person are an important part of your counseling journey, and I make sure to address you as an entire person. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), and I use this to help you process your trauma. I also tend to be strengths-based, and use cognitive behavioral therapy to treat anxiety and depression. My grief training and experience will help you process your grief. I vary my approach based on what you need at any specific time during our sessions.

Experience and Training
I have worked in the mental health field for over 10 years, in multiple settings with multiple different populations. I have specific training in Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and am trained in EMDR. EMDR is my treatment of choice for trauma or traumatic events. I choose CBT as an evidence-based treatment for depression and anxiety, and Motivational Interviewing for anything that requires a change in your life. Over all of this, I come from a strengths-based perspective that looks at the unique strengths and resiliencies of you as a person.

Personal Background:
I make my home in the foothills with my family including various animals and my two kids. I find peace in nature and the slower pace of life. My extended family remains in northern Minnesota, where I grew up on a farm, although I now call Colorado home. I became a social workertherapist because of my passion for helping others in all walks of life. My clients continue to inspire and challenge me every day to live a more fulfilling life.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

The relationship between you and your therapist is the most important factor in determining if therapy will be helpful to you. If you are seeking a good listener and someone who will not judge you, or offer advice, but will rather help you figure out your goals and then reach them, I may be a good fit for you. My experience working with difficult populations has lent me much patience, the ability to see the positives in everyone, and working with you from a strengths-perspective. If you are ready for therapy at this time, I look forward to meeting you and beginning our journey together!
