Hi and thank you for visiting my website! I specialize in helping individuals experiencing trauma-related stress and sleep problems. I am a recovery-oriented therapist, and I fully believe recovery is possible. I use a combination of talk therapy and mind-body strategies such as self-acupressure and mindfulness to help clients. My top priority is to help you live your best life.
I’ve been a therapist for over 15 years, and my therapeutic approach is grounded in using evidence-based treatments, backed by decades of research. If you are interested in learning more about the specific treatments I provide, please contact me.
My standard rates range from $130-$200 depending on location and length of session.
After living in the San Francisco Bay Area for the past 10 years, I recently made the difficult decision to move to the Denver area, and I couldn’t be happier! While Denver and Aurora have quickly become my home, I continue to provide therapy for clients living in both California and Colorado via telehealth, and I also see clients in person in Aurora at the Iliff Office Park in the Heather Ridge neighborhood. The majority of my experience comes from working for the Department of Veterans Affairs, and also through previous work on inpatient and residential units at a non-profit mental health facility.
A few years ago I returned to school to also become a massage therapist! I opened a small massage private practice called Restore Body and Soul in 2016 and expanded it to add mental health counseling in early 2018.
I also published my first book in 2018, Live Your Life: 14 Days to the Best You, which includes lessons I’ve shared with my clients over the years, using examples from my personal life. In my free time, I enjoy reading and writing, taking walks and exploring small towns, and I’m looking forward to exploring Colorado nature.
