My Approach to Helping

Most of us have experienced at least one mild trauma that shifted our perceptions of ourselves or the world negatively, leaving us feeling vulnerable and open. I believe that working side by side with a therapist, and having choices of interventions, can create a safe environment, where sharing vulnerabilities doesn't evoke fear. I believe in discovering together which solutions will help you through your challenges. We can focus on how your personal experiences have and continue to affect your life andor just focus on the solutions that you need today. With support, I believe that anyone can shift a challenging situation.

To begin with, I listen to what brings you into counseling, and together we come up with a plan to help you reach your goals. 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), so my main therapeutic approach is the Adaptive Information Processing Model. My other main therapeutic approaches are strengths-based, motivational interviewing, and cognitive behavioral therapy. I vary my approach based on what you need at any specific time during our sessions.

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 everyday 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!
