Therapist InfoAbout Me:
I am a clinical psychologist, a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister and a 4th generation Coloradan. I find solace in the place where the natural world and science meet - always curious to explore, deepen connections and grow beyond what was once believed. I seek to foster others' sense of power and inner knowing, while helping them to remain open and humble to everything life, relationships and their own spirit have to offer.
I believe people,
whether it is a loved one in care or a parent/caregiver supporting them,
have intuitions and inner resources that,
with the right conditions,
can help them move toward healing.
I seek to help others create those conditions -
through tapping into those resources
and learning about themselves and those they love.
My early training was primarily in psychodynamic psychotherapy, which provided a rich and deep learning about the human condition. I then went on to work in a variety of settings while integrating cognitive-behavioral (CBT, ERP), dialectical behavioral (DBT) and acceptance and commitment (ACT) approaches. My first true passion was helping families heal through family therapy approaches, such as family systems and Family-Based Treatment (FBT). I now enhance all of those efforts with Emotion-Focused Family Therapy (EFFT) - a parent/caregiver model that embodies the essence of my belief in the healing power of caregivers and being in relationship. I am a certified EFFT Advanced Therapist, Supervisor and Trainer. I also sit on the board for the International Institute of EFFT.
My most recent focus has been supporting individuals with non-ordinary states of consciousness. I trained with the Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), Polaris Insight Center and Skylight Psychedelics to learn more about working with consciousness expanding experiences. These trainings led to further exploration of mindfulness, parts-work and somatic approaches. I am now involved in a year-long training in Hakomi Therapy, which combines much of how I already work with new tools that foster lasting healing and transformation.Description of Services:

Our ProcessOverview of Experience:
My approach for preparation and integration is a combination of psychoeducation and skills development/practice and mindful somatic interventions.
Coaching/Consultation more heavily relies on skills-building and support, while Therapy allows for a deeper, comprehensive approach used as either an adjunct to talk therapy or stand alone work to support psychological well-being.Intake Process:
I offer a 30-minute free consultation to ensure it's a good fit. As indicated, I then follow-up with a comprehensive intake questionnaire and brief standardized assessments.
