My specialties are working with complex trauma, improving self-image, confidence building, and incorporating experiential techniques unique to the client. I have an eclectic style with strong attachments to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy wrapped in a humanistic approach.
Why do you believe that counseling can help?
I believe counseling can help because of the unique relationship that is built to focus on solving problems, supporting the individual, and empathically moving forward toward success. Individuals engaging in counseling have skilled advocates in their corner that want what is healthy and best for them. That by definition is helpful.
Did you have a career before becoming a therapist?
Prior to transitioning to the counseling field, I working in the Out of School Time field. The experience of working with school age children and their families became the lab where I honed the skills of valuing the potential of individuals in order to impact the collective good. I served on state boards for improving quality in before- and after-school settings, along with keeping childcare affordable and accessible for Coloradans.
Why is it important to seek counseling?
People get stuck in a myriad of ways for a myriad of reasons; seeking counseling is one way to get professional help in order to move forward. Coping strategies that individuals have adopted may no longer be effective or may be maladaptive. A counselor can provide different insights, tools, and support to assist the client to improve their life.
