I pursued a business career after college, never finding that job I could wake up excited to do most days of the week most weeks a year. Upon reflection and my own journey in therapy in my early thirties, I realized a dramatic career change was in order. I went back to school to earn a Master’s of Arts in Counseling from Regis University in the greater Denver, Colorado area. Not an easy path, but a rewarding and fulfilling experience. I am incredibly grateful to say that I now do wake up most everyday excited to work with my clients and help them find what they’re looking for and achieve their goals.
I have clinical experience in inpatient addiction rehabilitation and outpatient community mental health settings, working with adolescents and adults struggling with a wide range of challenges. I currently work as an LPCC with adult individuals and couples facing a range of challenges. I also facilitate a support group for adult survivors of childhood sexual assault through a non-profit organization called WINGS. I am honored to have earned the trust of my clients and to have helped them heal and find what they are looking for. While I use an integrative therapy approach, I am trained in relational life therapy (Terry Real) and trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (Judith Cohen, Esther Deblinger, and Anthony Mannarino).
I have lived part- or full-time in the Vail-Eagle Valley for nearly 25 years. Over the years, I’ve been fortunate to spend time skiing, skate skiing, skin touring, cycling, mountain biking, and hiking with family, friends, and my dog.
