I am a licensed professional counselor in the State of Colorado and have been working in the mental health field for over 19 years. I chose this line of work after having experienced a significant loss at a young age. have found meaning in my own brokenness and struggle by helping others find renewal, balance, growth and healing.

Through my career and my own personal experiences, I have learned that we all experience loss in life and many struggles come from this. With over 40 different types of loss in life ranging from relationship breakup, death of a loved one, divorce, loss of job, infertility, loss of trust, loss of innocence, being just a few. We can experience grief and loss in life when our hopes, dreams, and expectations for ourselves or others are threatened or unmet. In some cases, if we don’t grieve and mourn these losses we can become stuck in life and not meet our full potential or ourselves and for our relationships.

I believe humans are relational creatures and we thrive in life when we find a positive support system with our friends, family, and higher power. I strive to make sure my clients are managing the relationships in their life with great success and when that is not attainable. Regardless of whether it is a romantic relationship, friendship, work relationship, a relationship within themselves, or their faith (even if different than mine), I want my clients to have success and power over their lives. Individuals today strive so hard for control, and I help others find what they have control over: themselves.
