I use a person-centered approach to help create the change you want in your life. I help you integrate tools that feel authentic to your needs using a multicultural, trauma-informed lens. I have years of experience working with military families and understand the unique challenges faced. I work collaboratively with clients and I believe in bringing out the strength individuals possess and utilizing those strengths to promote change. I offer an authentic presence filled with support, empathy, encouragement, as well as humor, joy, and understanding. I look forward to hearing your story.
Hello! I believe we each have our own best solutions within us, even if we haven’t found them yet. We are resilient. There are many paths to change, and what works for one, may not work for another. Fundamentally, a process of change must honor individuality to achieve ultimate success. Effective change solutions must support the whole person holistically, not merely target the problem.

I am licensed in Colorado with 14 years of professional work experience. I have a passion for helping clients to a better place.

I come alongside my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. I have years of experience in assisting individuals with stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, anger management, low-self esteem, and building confidence. I am here to support you in that process.

I am a licensed clinical counselor dedicated in helping people manage the challenges in life. I would like to teach you skills and tools to navigate emotions when things become difficult.

Life can feel overwhelming and challenging and choosing to move forward during these difficult times takes courage and strength. Making the decision to seek therapy to help navigate through life’s toughest challenges is a great first step. My therapy style is warm and interactive.

I am a positive and personable Therapist providing trauma informed therapy. I help individuals understand who they are and how to work through their past/present challenges and hurts as they move forward towards a future filled with hope.
