I offer a warm and encouraging, down-to-earth approach to therapy. Therapeutic interventions are rooted in respect, acceptance and validation to facilitate successful navigation of challenging life circumstances. I have been trained in various models of treatment and adapt interventions to client needs and preferences. In addition to traditional "talk therapy", I also offer EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) and Brain Spotting. Other models of therapy that I utilize include DBT (Dialectical and Behavioral Therapy), CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) and Comprehensive Resource Model.
Education and Credentials:
I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology from Florida State University, and a Master's degree in Psychology with an emphasis in marriage, family, and child counseling from Chapman University. Since 2000, I have been licensed as a Colorado Marriage and Family Therapist.
