I’d like to first offer that I know that finding a therapist who “gets” you can be challenging.
And, that those first few sessions can be terrifying in learning to become vulnerable. It was difficult for me as well, and incredibly healing.
A Therapist with experience working with children, teens, adults, and couples, I received my Masters in Counseling from Adams State University in Alamosa, CO and my Undergraduate degree from Unity College in Maine.
With practice in education, the social services sector, foster care/adoption, and counseling,
I am able to work with a wide variety of clientele. I am bilingual in Spanish and have
extensive experience working with trauma, self-esteem, anxiety, depression, behavioral concerns, and a dysregulated nervous system.
In my work with clients of all ages and backgrounds, I use a variety of treatment methods.
I believe we all have the strength to become more aware, to make positive changes, and to
honor who we are. My therapy style is holistic, compassionate, down to earth, and oftentimes challenging. I aspire to help my clients feel safe, understood, heard, and challenged to make the changes they desire without fear or judgment.
More personally, I grew up on the East Coast before deciding to make Summit County my home. I love traveling, yoga, hiking, cross-country skiing, gardening and going on lots of outdoor adventures.
