Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me, as I believe it is imperative we work well together. It has been said the client-counselor relationship is the most important part of the work. I recently opened my Private Practice at 916 Arizona Avenue, Suite A, Trinidad, Colorado.
I earned my Master of Social Work Degree from the University of Denver in 1997. Here at Colorado I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), in Kansas I am a Licensed Specialist Clinical Social Worker (LSCSW), and a Licensed Clinical Addiction Counselor (LCAC). I have successfully worked with traumatized children of abuse and neglect, youth-in-conflict, as well as adults of all ages. I am a trauma specialist, am trained in EMDR (Maiberger Institute at Boulder, CO), and am a Certified Hypnotherapist from The Wellness Institute at Issaquah, WA. I also employ more traditional therapeutic interventions. My clients have shared testimonials of success, unmatched in previous counseling experiences.
I came from a rural background, growing up on a farm/ranch. From there I have been all over the world. I am as at home in a small village in Africa, as I am in one of the largest cities in the world. One thing I have learned from my extensive travel is this; we are all the same when it comes right down to it. We all have our own hopes and dreams; yet at times they seem so out of reach. If you're struggling with depression, anxiety, excessive irritability, mood swings, trust issues, self-sabotaging behaviors, and/or panic, among other problems, please call me.
Life is full of aches and pains; yet we all have a choice. We can either accept this as our lot in life, or we can rail against it, and look for a better way. This is my invitation to you. Together, let us find that better path. My goal is to help you reduce and manage the difficult, while learning to create and embrace the positive.
