Are you struggling with aligning your daily activities with your values and goals? Do you find yourself feeling stuck in unfulfilling relationships? We'll begin by talking about your goals for psychotherapy, and we'll collaborate on a plan for our work together. You can expect to develop more perspective and self-compassion, find a new capacity to navigate difficult feelings, and uncover and work towards freedom from habitual thought patterns.
It is often difficult to begin a journey of self-discovery; but with the right support, the work finds its rhythm, and improvements can come surprisingly quickly. Contact me for a free telephone consultation, and we can discuss where we might start our work together.
I am a licensed psychotherapist with 9 years of experience helping people suffering from conditions like depression, anxiety, loss/grief and PTSD/trauma so that they can live happier, more balanced lives. My office is located on Capitol Hill at 1155 Sherman St., #311, Denver, CO 80203.
My approach is guided by the belief that therapeutic presence is essential for positive change, and that change is possible. I have specialized training in existential/psychoanalytic therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and EMDR. I help my clients uncover the root causes of current problems in order to live lives of purpose and happiness, moment to moment.
Experiences in groups are uniquely powerful ways to move towards change, especially for clients struggling with complex relational dynamics that may be difficult to treat in individual therapy. Since 2013, I have been actively training in group therapy with the American Group Psychotherapy Association and the Center for Group Studies in New York. I help my clients to recognize previously unacknowledged ways that others may experience them, and to create new language for their experiences.
I received a Master's in Social Work from Smith College School for Social Work in 2012, and graduated from the UC San Diego/ VA San Diego Interprofessional Fellowship in Psychosocial Rehabilitation in 2013. As a faculty member for the fellowship program and a field instructor for several schools of social work from 2015-18, I provided training in assessment and psychotherapy for psychosis-spectrum disorders and PTSD.In addition to my private practice, I work as a full-time psychotherapist at the Rocky Mountain Regional VA Medical Center and I teach group therapy at Metropolitan State University of Denver's Department of Social Work.
Before becoming a therapist, I worked as a wilderness guide, both domestically and internationally. I have been a Buddhist meditation practitioner since 2000, and have received instruction in the Vipassana, Zen, and Vajrayana traditions.
