Non judgement and unconditional acceptance are the cornerstones of my practice. My strength is looking at each client's issues as opportunities for learning. Body centered education, teaching how emotional feelings become feelings in the body, is emphasized. Learning from my client's current awareness is the goal in any session. My work is non-religious but spiritual. My intention is to have each client lose the need for ongoing therapy. I have been successful in helping hundreds of individuals. I see adults, teens, couples and groups. I have offered Equine assisted therapy as an adjunct to my practice since 1999.

I believe we all have a core self or soul that is not necessarily expressed or manifest. I also believe we have the capacity to awaken to our soul and fulfill its journey. When we access this core self, healing power is released that moves us towards ever greater well-being and wholeness. We feel more alive, more present, and filled with a deeper sense of meaning. We also experience the connection between ourselves and the people around us.
I have found, in myself and in others, that the way to connect with our core self is to listen fully to all parts of ourselves with curiosity, unconditional acceptance and presence. I have also discovered that we can create authentic, fulfilling relationships with others only when we have a relationship with our core self.
My approach as a psychotherapist is to honor the soul of each person and support them in accessing the innate wisdom, aliveness and healing power that this self contains. I do this through deep empathic listening, gentle guidance, intuition and by using methods from Nonviolent Communication™, Spiritual Psychology and Inner Relationship Focusing.

I use a metaphysical approach to depression and self-hatred – helping to create the conditions in which change occurs rather than perusing the change itself. I also support the client in embracing the feelings they have been trying to resolve with logic and achievement and allow these feelings to lead them back to early trauma and self-defeating beliefs. This is a non-directive approach that allows the client to discover who they uniquely are as opposed to what they think they would like to become. Change is lasting and often dramatic - occurring within moments, weeks, and months as opposed to years.

I am client focused, firm believer in meeting people where they are, a strong advocate, and work extremely well with diverse people and/or populations. I earned my associates degree in Human Services (Mental Health Concentration) from Southeast Community College, my bachelor’s degree in Family Science and Psychology from University of Nebraska-Lincoln and my master’s degree in Psychology from the University of Phoenix. I also earned certification in Gambling Addiction and Counseling for individuals who struggle with gambling related issues (NCGC-I and ICGC-II). I am certified in Driving with Care (DWC) providing Level I and II DWI Education and Therapy Groups. I have completed all mandatory curriculum and internship/supervision hours associated with an Licensed Addiction Counselor (LAC) and currently awaiting my licensure. I am a member of and subscribed to the code of ethics for both National Association of Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors (NAADAC) and National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG). I am a Registered Psychotherapist with The Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA) who is responsible for licensing and consumer protection. I began my professional career at a locked state mental institution where I worked with individuals diagnosed with moderate to severe mental illness, adult forensic population, and chronic care. This first experience was foundational for me and created a passion for this work. I saw a frequent disconnect between services among the mental health, addiction, and criminal justice systems. I saw how systemic issues can directly impact people in a negative way. I made it my goal for the next 20 years to try to address these issues in an integrated way because I saw how they were often resolved best when treated holistically. I held two internships as an undergrad (both in direct care) one in a retirement facility (Lancaster Manor) where I worked with individuals diagnosed with Dementia and/or Alzheimer’s and the other in a mental institution (Lincoln Regional Center) where I worked with adults and adolescents diagnosed with severe mental illness, co-occurring disorders and the criminal justice system. I have worked in the mental health and criminal justice system most of my career including jails, prisons, probation, and community corrections. I have worked and continue to work in the capacity of a therapist, case manager, and group leader. In grad school I held an internship as a therapist providing individual and group therapy at the Denver Sheriff’s Office at the Denver County Jail and assisted in the implementation of the men’s mental health unit. As a professional, I have had many roles as a therapist, case manager, and addiction counselor- typically as a case manager, advocate, clinician, or a mixture of all the above. Much of my experience has been working in community mental health centers and within the criminal justice system (inside jails, prisons, interfacing with police departments and courts). My continued training has taken place in the form of classes, workshops, conferences, webinars, seminars, and personal research.
