Licensed Professional Counselor ( LPC), EMDR, ADS, BST
I work with individuals of all ages to address concerns ranging from depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, PTSD. A majority of individuals I see reach out because they have tried to address these issues by using other means and have not been as successful as they had hoped. They are able to work through these and other issues to find a place of healing, balance and direction.
My experience includes over 12 years in the mental health field working with a range of individuals from young children to older adults. I have very specific trauma related training including EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) certification and have several years of experience working with complex trauma cases.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker, ADS, BST (Brain Synchronization Therapy), OSW-C
In my 27 years of providing counseling in both medical and private sectors I am firm in my belief that we all have the knowledge and ability to address the stresses that life can throw at us. However, sometimes because of extenuating circumstances our vision can become cloudy and we can lose our way. I work with individuals of all ages while practicing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Motivational Interviewing to reinforce the importance of healthy coping skills and problem-solving skills. I have received specialized certifications in grief/loss and traumatic loss in addition to figuring out how to maintain a life while managing a chronic illness or potentially life limiting diagnosis.
Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), ATR (Registered Art Therapist)
I work with individuals, from early adolescence to late adulthood, to address life transitions, anxiety, depression, trauma, abuse, LGBTQ+ issues, self-image and self-esteem and grief. Through my career, I have conducted art therapy within the public school system, treatment communities, senior care communities, correctional facilities and within domestic violence shelters.
I specialize in art therapy, directive and studio based, to help clients reach their therapeutic goals. I utilize behavioral techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy. My approach overall is eclectic, pulling from Gestalt, Jungian and psycho-dynamic theories as well. My personal approach is humanistic, offering a supportive atmosphere, creative discovery, authenticity and a person-centered experience.

Receptionist/Office Administrator, SWC, BST, ADS
I am currently pursuing my LCSW have worked with mental health in several capacities including at the Dorcy Cancer Center. I am comfortable working with individuals of all ages to address issues ranging from anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss related issues and phase of life stressors and transitions. Being able to identify and empathize with individuals is a quality I bring into all sessions while we work together to form a plan to best address your needs. Brain Synchronization Therapy is one technique I use to address these individual needs through a process that is similar to EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing). I also believe that treating the whole individual and addressing all needs is best practice to making effective and lasting changes.

I am a current graduate student at Colorado State University Pueblo, where I am pursuing my Master’s of Social Work degree. As a part of my education, I am completing my internship hours seeing clients in the clinical setting. I also plan on continuing in the clinical setting after I graduate as it is my passion. My clinical perspective is eclectic as I like to pull from various treatment modalities to meet my client’s needs. I am trained in BST, and I am particularly interested in trauma processing. In the future, I aspire to become an LCSW. I am thrilled to be on this education journey, and I look forward to helping my clients to the best of my ability.
