I received my Masters of Social Work from the University of Denver, where I specialized in clinical work with families and Interpersonal Trauma. My desire to take my clinical skills to a deeper level led me to pursue intensive post-graduate training in Marriage and Family Therapy from the Denver Family Institute.
My experience in the field includes youth mentoring, case management, group facilitation and therapy with individuals, couples, and families. I am a strengths-based, client-centered therapist with a clinical orientation to family systems work. I believe in authentically supporting a client by emphasizing their strengths, meeting them where they are, and understanding that each human being is a unique member of their family and community.
I am a native of Boulder, Colorado, a product of Waldorf Education, a daughter, sister, wife 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.
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.
