Hello! I'm so glad you are taking the steps to find the support you need! Therapy can truly be life-changing for those who fully invest in the process!
I have a Masters of Counseling with an emphasis in Couple and Family Counseling, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Colorado. I primarily work with relationship needs, such as communication issues, conflict resolution, parenting approaches, and compatibility concerns; however, I often work with anxieties, self worth, shame, or behavior patterns, that often impact relationships as well. If any of these sound familiar to you, I would be very interested to learn more about your needs and how I can help.
I integrate many modalities into sessions, based on my clients' individual needs and what would be most effective for supporting their goals. One overarching approach I always tend to incorporate in addition to any other treatment modality, however, is a systems perspective. This comes from my work with couples and families, and it means that I look for ways in which you and your environment (including other people in your environment) mutually influence each other in ways that keep you stuck. This is important because it provides key information about how we might get you unstuck!
Another  common thread that you may - or may not - experience in your work with me, is engagement in activities that broaden our self-awareness and understanding, increase our sense of the boundary between ourselves and others, and work to depersonalize interactions and improve self concepts. I cannot emphasize enough how much negative self concepts hold us back. We humans have so many defenses devised to preserve our self worth! Which is great, because we NEED to have self worth, but unfortunately, our defenses aren't the most effective way of addressing this need. If this is a barrier for you, it will need to be therapeutically addressed to help you achieve your ultimate goals. But, if so, you will ultimately feel so much better for it! 
Lastly, another modality that is strongly incorporated into the work with my clients is a solution-focused approach. In essence, this means that the majority of the work we do in session is focused on the present and future. Needs and wants become more clearly identified, directly expressed, and actively worked toward. This is really important, because this is how we start making your wishes your new reality! 

If it sounds like I might be a good fit for you, please reach out and let me know how I can help. Let's begin examining the many factors that influence you and your circumstances, and start discovering the ways that you can be empowered to have a positive impact on your future!
