A Little About Me
 
I am a Licensed Addiction Counselor and registered as a Marriage and Family Therapist Candidate in the state of Colorado. I work with individuals, couples, and families as they struggle with difficulties in communicating, setting and holding boundaries, and trusting one another. My belief is that solid and healthy relationships lead to increased individual and relational happiness. I am a practicing Christian and when meeting with clients who share my faith, I utilize a faith-based approach incorporating God’s word and truth as a guide to getting you back on track to leading the life He intended for you to lead.
 
I have been married for 6 years and am the proud mother of an amazing and intelligent little girl with another on the way. I know the joys and heartaches associated with marriage and family and I am committed to helping you navigate your path to a healthy and successful home life.
 
A Typical Session
 
During a typical session with me you will notice that I meet you where you are at and that I offer no judgment regarding the struggles or concerns that brought you to my office. I create a safe and comfortable space for you to share and work through your struggles, while at the same time highlighting inconsistencies and challenging you to try alternative thinking and communication patterns in order to improve your relationships and reduce your tendency to engage in unhealthy patterns. I utilize a variety of therapeutic modalities in order to offer you an individualized counseling experience specific to your needs, and I encourage collaboration so that you have an active voice in determining the direction of your treatment.
 
The Benefits of Counseling
 
 My belief about counseling is that the more effort, time, and commitment you put towards changing and growing the more benefits you will see. Like the old adage says, ‘you will get out what you put in’. Some of the benefits of committing to counseling include, but are not limited to:
  • Improved ability to effectively communicate
  • Improved ability and willingness to establish and hold healthy boundaries
  • Increased utilization of healthy coping skills
  • Improved mood and outlook on life
  • Increased trust
  • Improved self-confidence and increased self-awareness
  • Reduction in self destructive habits (including infidelity, violence, and substance abuse)

My Passion
 
While I enjoy and have experience working with individuals, couples, and families, it is my time spent with families and couples that I am most passionate about. Healthy relationships bring so much joy to life and it is my greatest pleasure to be able to help others experience the joy that a healthy, happy family can bring.
