Circumstance, biology, and both, can lead us to a point where we want to see a counselor. We find that we want to regain some control in our lives, to have the relationships we want, to feel better, or to talk to someone who might help us understand what we are going through. My belief is counseling is facilitating, it isn't my helping you as if you were incapable. Counseling is our striving together towards what you want and need your life to be.
I know we are all able to experience happiness. I know this from personal experience and my guess is you do too or hope would not have led you here. I will collaborate with you to bring that happiness back into your life. We will do this by creatively using whatever ways work best for you. It may be talk therapy, mindfulness techniques, increasing emotion or body awareness, art, or very practical changes in thinking or daily behavior that will support you best. I sought therapy and my education for the purposes of personal growth and to facilitate the well-being and freedom of others.
I consider myself a facilitator in the process of healing and will work with any concern you have. No matter the issue, no matter how embarrassing, frightening or difficult you find it, please feel free to show up for support.
I offer a thirty minute phone or in-person consultation for us to decide if we want to endeavor together.
I've worked in the human service field for over twenty years in a number of capacities and have a Masters degree in Transpersonal Psychology. I've worked with people challenged by anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, disabilities, criminal behaviors and a variety of struggles.
I've lived in Colorado for over sixteen years. I love it here for the mountains and my family. I have a daily meditation practice and have been practicing mindfulness since my adolescence. I enjoy music, art and spending time with my partner and our cats.
I respect all aspects of people including race, ethnicity, gender expression, sexual orientation, socio-economic background, political affiliation, age, religion, body shape, size and ability.
