It is my passion to help individuals and couples who find themselves in a place of life transitions and questioning their path in life. All of life’s transitions are change and it is life’s way of asking us to examine our present way of being and can force us willingly or unwillingly to grow as individuals. It is natural to resist most changes in life and to feel fear, uncertainty, to feel overwhelmed, to be disillusioned, to even feel angry EVEN when the life change is something we planned for. Some examples of life changes are: grief from loss of a loved one, a significant change in your relationship or your career; changes in your marital status such as marriage, divorce, or remarriage; the diagnosis of or living with a chronic illness & disease.
I am a registered psychotherapist trained as Master Social Worker, living in Montrose, Colorado and I serve the surrounding areas such as Olathe, Ridgway & Telluride, Colorado. I received my Masters in Social Work in 2015 from Metropolitan State University of Denver. I believe in using different therapy theories (such as cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic therapy, solution focused, attachment theory, emotionally focused couple therapy, narrative therapy, person centered) and multiple modalities such as mindfulness to help you achieve healing on your journey.
I have lived in Montrose for eleven years and I love living here. I moved to Montrose from Denver after a divorce and was a single mother for a time. I am now remarried with a blended family. I feel that these perspectives and experiences help add empathy as well as a “lived experience” to my clients experience with me. I have a wide range of experience in grief support, victim advocacy, medical social work, geriatric care, and rehabilitation care.
I consider it my honor to help my clients on their healing journey. My fundamental belief is that the human spirit is amazing and reveals a resiliency to heal and to love.
