TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE FOR CONSULTATION.  I attained my Master of Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health with a special focus in multicultural counseling from the University of Colorado Denver. I work effectively with individuals of many cultural groups and identifications who struggle with the following challenges in their lives:

• anxiety
• depression
• stress & stress related illnesses
• life balance
• self-injury
• formation of identity
• self-esteem
• grief and loss
• trauma and abuse

I also provide culturally respectful services to members of the American Indian, Alaska Native and First Nations communities. I am trained to use Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) skills, which address topics such as mindfulness and emotional regulation.  I have been trained by the PPDA to provide Stress Check-Ups. I am a member of the Rocky Mountain Stress Check-Up Network.

I am an active member of The American Counseling Association, The Association for Multicultural Counseling and Development, and Counselors for Social Justice, and the Colorado Association of Psychotherapists.  I am a Registered Psychotherapist (#12638) with the State of Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA), and am in the process of obtaining the necessary requirements for licensure. I am a National Certified Counselor, and I work under the supervision of a licensed clinician.N.

PPD Training, Experience and Approach

My primary approaches to therapy are called Multicultural and Existential Humanistic Therapies. These approaches demonstrate respect for and evaluate the individual, the relationships in their lives, the culture with which they identify, and how they make meaning of the experiences and elements of their lives. Value is found in examining the subjects of gender, age, ethnicity, spirituality, socio-economic status, and many other cultural forces in determining how a person has come to be who they are, what they believe about the world, and the troubles they are bringing to therapy.

I strive to help clients to make meaning of their experiences on their terms - not via the definitions dictated by larger society or dominant systems.
