About me

Research shows the relationship between you and your therapist is the most effective therapy tool. I encourage people to be good consumers and find a therapist whom they feel comfortable and safe their presence. 

I graduated from the University of Colorado at Denver with a Master's in  Counseling Psychology and Counselor Education. I earned a License in  Professional Counseling in 2009 and a License in Addiction Counseling in  2012. 

I  am trained in the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical  Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, Motivational Interviewing, Person-Centered Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy and Strengths-Based Therapy. I enjoy  working with people who want to bolster their self-esteem and  self-efficacy. 

I also have an emergency medical background and served as an EMT for Summit County Ambulance Service and well as for Primary Care from 1995 to 2015. I believe this experience has helped me look at health in a holistic way as physical health is connected to mental health.
