THE FIRST STEP:
Are you looking for a safe space to work through challenges that you’d prefer not to discuss in detail with your friends or family? Are you feeling stuck in patterns that are hurting you and your loved ones? My job is to provide this space, and I do so with warmth, acceptance, and a true investment in your life and well-being. Your goals become my goals, and together we check them off the list until we achieve the changes you desire. Choosing the right therapist for you is the first step.

My decision to become a couples and family therapist was simple because, quite honestly, I never imagined myself doing anything else.
I am deeply inspired by the life experiences of others and knew from an early age that my most natural path to being of service in this world was to learn how to support the highest quality of human relationships. While our close relationships have the potential to be our greatest source of joy, they can also cause incredible distress and harm to our lives. It is for this reason—the goal of supporting others to live authentically and to engage in healthy and life-giving relationships—that I feel inspired and energized by this work.
I am a native of Boulder, Colorado, a product of Waldorf Education, a daughter, sister, partner, and friend. If given unlimited time I would travel the world, paint, read, explore the outdoors, spend time with family and friends, and continuously
strive to be the best therapist of my ability.
