While my educational journey of the last ten years has taken me from New York to Hawaii and in between, I am thrilled to now call Colorado home for good. Having recently relocated from California, it is with great excitement that I join the staff of the Metis Center.
A client-centered clinician at my foundation, it is my top priority to foster a genuine therapeutic relationship. My background in working with adults and youth who have experienced trauma has provided me the tools to ensure a safe and empowering environment. I have experience working with a variety of clinical concerns and practice from a strengths-based, culturally sensitive, person-centered perspective. By tailoring Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and other current evidence-based practices in creative ways to meet the individual needs of the client, I seek to honor human uniqueness.
I was fortunate to attend graduate school at the University of La Verne near Los Angeles where I received my doctoral degree in Clinical-Community Psychology. This education provided an emphasis on multicultural competency and social justice, which allows me to assist clients in examining the impact of the multiple environments in one’s life.
I am a West Virginia native and an avid sports and music fan. I enjoy spending as much time as possible in the beautiful Colorado landscape.
It is a true privilege to walk alongside clients on their journey to positive self-growth and I am continually inspired by how much I have learned from my clients. I am grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with you in navigating your individualized path to wellness.
Well-versed in cognitive behavioral techniques, I am dedicated to assisting individuals explore the power of thoughts and how altering thoughts often can improve functioning. I am comfortable utilizing traditional and creative interventions, and hope to honor your uniqueness by jointly creating an individualized plan for treatment.
I currently practice in the Broomfield office.
