Meet the Providers
As a strengths-based clinician, I look to help individuals, families, and couples identify and build upon strengths they already possess. Rather than staying problem focused, I hope to help clients focus on solutions to their identified problems ultimately resulting in a decline in symptoms experienced and an overall greater satisfaction with relationships and life in general. As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, I have a great respect and enjoyment for working with others in my community. I believe that my own experiences and empathy assist me in being a helpful therapist for members of this population.
I received my Bachelor of Arts in Behavioral Science from Metropolitan State University of Denver in 2005. I thoroughly enjoy and take pride in my role as a Clinic Administrator – I love to support the employees and help the clinic run smoothly so we can focus on providing the very best in client care. Outside of work, my kids keep me very busy! Two of my favorite things to do is watch my son play baseball and attend my daughter’s choir concerts. During my free time, I enjoy reading, playing board games, traveling, and spending time with friends and family.
My goal is to restore patients to their optimal psychological wellbeing by building a strong provider-patient relationship. Through shared decision-making processes, I aim to provide optimal patient-centered care.
The most important aspect of therapy is the relationship between therapist and client. Insight and change can only be achieved when a therapist is able to ‘meet clients where they are at.’ My style is client-centered, experiential, and most importantly, nonjudgmental. I specialize in working with families, teenagers, emerging adults, adults, and couples. I pride myself on my ability to develop meaningful, catalytic relationships with my clients, and create an engaging safe space for all.
I believe therapy is a powerful tool for healing and growth. My genuine curiosity, compassion, direct feedback, and desire to uplift individuals’ inherent strengths guide my practice. I am a fierce champion for my clients, working collaboratively to address barriers to sex and intimacy, trauma, anxiety, depression, and significant life transitions. Most importantly, I am committed to building a safe and open space that allows people to show up and discover the most authentic and real version of themselves.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a technological breakthrough in the treatment of Major Depression. Family Care Center is proud to be one of the largest TMS providers.
Therapy can be a space to talk to someone who’s not part of your life, to have someone who will listen and who can offer a new perspective. Its about finding someone you connect with, and who can help you get unstuck or think in new ways. It’s scary, but when it works its a great feeling – that’s why I do it.
While therapy is becoming more accepted and talked about in our culture, it still can be an intimidating and scary idea. You can be confident that when working with me, you will be in the driver’s seat of your treatment. Therapy is your time and your space to address the issues you choose. As your therapist, I’m simply there to support you in reaching your chosen destination.
I am a therapist that is compassionate, without coddling, and will spice up sessions with humor, laughter, and maybe a curse word or two. I strive for a space that fosters growth & conveys the feeling that you aren’t alone. The soul of my work is to help identify the root of the struggle so we can laugh and cry to coping, healing, and resilience. I’m not here to judge you on your journey; I am grateful to help you along the way.
Alongside processing trauma and past events, I believe having a skill tool box is equally as important. DBT does just that and more. I use these skills in everyday life and they help with expanding our tolerance window, emotion regulation, and communication with others. It’s hard to get through everyday life when having mental hurdles and together we can come up with solutions to jump over those barriers. I provide a calm environment and meet my clients where they’re at. Setting goals, accomplishing small steps, and recognizing your strengths are some of the keys to successful healing.
The normal ups and downs of life can be difficult enough to navigate through without the added burdens that life
can throw at us. Therapy is a valuable tool to process and work through this roller-coaster we are all living
through as well as any traumatic experiences that may be holding us back. My ultimate goal as a therapist is to provide you with the welcoming and empathetic space needed for you to figure out who you are and what you
need to in order to be your best and most authentic self – my role is to give you the tools and guidance to empower you to get there.
First and foremost, it is important to acknowledge that seeking therapy is a courageous step towards
self-improvement and mental well-being. It takes strength to reach out for help, and I commend you for taking
this initiative. In our sessions, we will explore various topics related to your mental well-being, such as stress
management, self-esteem, relationships, and personal growth. I encourage you to be open about your thoughts and feelings, as this will help us get to the root of any issues you may be facing. It is important to remember that therapy is a journey, and progress looks different for everyone.
I have worked with children in a residential setting, was a foster parent for 3 years adopting my son from the
foster system. I worked in residential and community base programs with children, adults, families and couples. I
was a senior care advisory with the area agency on aging for three years. I have worked with all walks of life, at
all ages, with various co-occurring disorders, and socio-economics levels. Every person is unique as well as their answers to THEIR approaches. I am here to help you find your way back to the path that you desire and the life happy life you deserve.
You are the expert of your life, I am here to help. My role is to be a support, listening ear, mental health professional and sometimes add advice/guidance from time to time while you navigate this life. Challenges are everywhere and we don’t always get to decide what happens, but we can decide how we want to handle things and who we show up as. Together, we can work on the tools you want or need to cope, process and learn how you want to navigate your life. Looking into starting therapy at all is a huge step, you should be so proud! And I look forward to meeting you and helping you along your way.
I provide a safe, nonjudgmental space for my clients to feel comfortable to work through their stressors. I believe
everyone is the expert of their own life and deserves emotional wellbeing and healthy relationships. Throughout
our time in therapy, I will work alongside you to help you develop and improve on any missing skills, achieve a
greater sense of self-worth, and achieve a greater feeling of functioning and life satisfaction.
My professional interests include a holistic approach to medicine that take into account one’s body, mind and spirit. I treat each patient on an individual level, taking into account their story, goals, boundaries, etc. I am here to provide expertise, resources, suggestions, education and guidance. I do not discriminate based on age, sex, gender, race, sexual orientation and believe everyone should have access to good healthcare.
I am here to help! I’ve always had a passion for helping those in need. I am an easy but very outspoken person to talk with, whether it’s for advice or just need an ear to fill. I am here! I enjoy being one of the main points of contact and lending a helping hand to all the employees and patients within my clinic.
