About Me

  • GENDER: Female (She/her/hers)
  • LANGUAGE: English

I am a licensed psychologist who works with people of all ages, individuals and families, to accomplish personal goals. I primarily offer services to clients who may struggle with anxiety disorders, ADHD, autism spectrum and life transitions. Working from a strength-based lens, I help people identify areas they feel competent and successful in while also identifying areas of growth. I practice from a cognitive behavioral orientation and utilize evidenced-based treatment modalities while also incorporating a warm person-centered style. What this means is that I believe we are all capable of change and growth and learning new skills and new ways of approaching life's’ challenges. I prefer a collaborative approach where I meet my client where they are at and support them in their journey toward health and wellness. I see the individual as a whole person and feel comfortable discussing topics pertaining to the mind/thoughts and related to the body, and spirit.

I have had extensive experience working with children, adults and families in various clinical settings. After completing my Master's in Community Mental Health, I worked as an in-home family therapist providing support to foster families, biological families and children in transition. After working for a couple of years, I realized I wanted to further my education, so I went back to school and worked toward my Doctorate in Counseling Psychology. My training in my doctoral program, at the University of Northern Colorado, was focused on individual therapy, family counseling and assessment. I have worked in the mental health field for over 20 years and have had advanced training related to the treatment of anxiety disorders in children and adults, ADHD and the autism spectrum. Most recently, I completed training to facilitate Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions (SPACE), a treatment approach that focuses on teaching parents strategies to help their anxious child.

I genuinely value hearing each person's life story. I enjoy listening without judgment and then working together to figure out next steps toward growth and healing. I appreciate the process of walking together, offering support and guidance, encouraging, gently prompting, teaching and learning, all at the same time. I understand that this life is often challenging, and I feel that I have some skills and life experiences that can assist others to further develop and grow. When I am not working, I have two wonderful boys that I enjoy immensely. I love to spend time with my husband and children attending sporting events, going for walks, riding bikes, practicing yoga and being out in nature as much as possible.
