Find the right fit for you


What do you see in the photo below? Notice the difference between the reality and the reflection. Notice if there is a path over the mountain. Learning what works for you takes similar skills as looking closely at the photo and using your ability to make distinctions using the evidence of your own experience. You know best what works for you and if you have been working hard and getting no results it might be time to take an approach from a different perspective. 
How will you know if I am the right one for you to work with in achieving the results you want for how you hope to be living your life? It is my commitment to you to provide you with processes and programs that have been proven to work. I do this because I care about giving the best I can to alleviate suffering brought on by ineffectively struggling. 

The Fit 

My colleagues describe me as honest and kind with a high degree of integrity in being accepting and non-judgmental. They know me as a person who is devoted to professional growth. What this means for you is that I am committed to being truthful to you with compassion and caring in alignment with the collaborative relationship we define together. I will bring to our work together the best and most current knowledge and skills paired with personal warmth. Consequently, I practice Evidence Based Therapies (EBT). Why should this matter to you? It means is there is scientific research or evidence that supports the effectiveness of EBTs  for your unique situation. You can skip to the bottom to about EBTs.
My friends and family know me as being persistent, adventuresome, and funny. I love to laugh. If I can get somebody laughing with me that is even better. It is my belief humor can help us heal. Life can be hard and snagging a few giggles here and there can lighten the load. I call it mental fitness like being flexibly fit physically. The hard stuff is will be almost always be and the work to figure out how to live life will be the focus of our time together. We can iron out the details when you call. 
Still not sure if we are a good fit to work together. Individuals who do best with me are ready to take action. They are willing to experience some discomfort in the service of reaching their fullest potential. I mention discomfort because change is about to happen which generally feels uncomfortable. In other words, getting outside your comfort zone is the best place for growth to occur and it can be painful. I will be there to coach and support you through the process. Another factor influencing fit is your motivation to try on new behaviors between sessions. Motivation is a renewable skill you can learn. It is unique to each individual and we can discover what works for you.  


On a more personal note I enjoy being in nature. Hiking, camping, riding the ATV, as far as that goes just about anything in nature rejuvenates me. Nature is  my self-care. Also, I bring the practical experience of having four grown children. Two of which are adopted twins that are part of my blended family. I adore my children and partner. 

Career Tidbits 

Before becoming a therapist and coach I completed a successful career of 17 years at a Fortune 500 company in Human Resources as a trainer, recruiter and career success coach. The skills I gained from working in Human Resources are an extra bonus when you work with me. 


As mentioned above in the section Fit the EBTs I find most useful are listed below. If you click each one for a description. 
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (psychotherapy)
Acceptance and Commitment Training (career)
Motivational Interviewing
Dialectical Behavior Therapy
Eye Movement and Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
The above is a short list of tools in my tool box. Make it easy on yourself and call me while you are exploring the idea of counseling and/or coaching. 720-260-7702.

I look forward to talking with you soon. 720-260-7702
