Experience:
I have over five years of experience providing individual and group counseling for men and women struggling with mental health, substance use, and trauma-related concerns in community mental health, residential, outpatient, and criminal justice settings. In addition, I provided supervision for clinicians seeking licensure in the state of Colorado. I hold dual credentials in the state of Washington as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (License #: LH60689595) and Chemical Dependency Professional (Certification #: CP60689104).

Professional Interests and Specialties: 

  • addiction 
  • relapse prevention
  • anxiety disorders
  • mood disorders (Major Depressive Disorder, Bipolar Disorders, etc.)
  • psychotic disorders (Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective Disorders, etc.)
  • boundaries
  • interpersonal relational patterns
  • identity development
  • grief and loss
  • shame
  • military lifestyle and trauma 

I strive to utilize evidence-based interventions which address the holistic needs of an individual and draw out his or her motivations and skills for change. Specific therapeutic interventions reflect the tenets of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing and attachment theory. Together, these theories not only promote insight but also seek to provide practical ways to change thought patterns, behaviors, and ways of relating to others. My choice of approach varies depending on the presenting problems and goals of the client, their personality and intellectual style, and the amount of time they are able to devote to therapeutic work.

Education:
MA in Clinical Mental Health, Denver Seminary, Denver CO
