I'm a licensed psychologist living and practicing in beautiful Denver, Colorado. i provide a safe, comfortable and supportive environment for you to explore the issues most important in your life.
I bring a wealth of experience to the areas of anxiety and trauma recovery. Trauma can mean a lot of things. It can be a car accident, a scary birth experience, surgery, or cancer treatment. It can be a one time event, or repeated experiences such as an abusive childhood or relationship. I have years of experience treating trauma and am currently working toward my certification in EMDR (eye movement desensitization reprocessing) therapy, having recently completed my training. EMDR is a tremendously effective treatment that accesses your memories of trauma in a different way, allowing you to desensitize and reprocess the trauma to a new and healthier meaning.
I also work with other types of anxiety, including panic attacks, generalized anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder. Specifically, I work with new moms (and dads, too!) who found the birth experience not what they were expecting, whether due to medical intervention or post partum depression, as well as people going through or survivors of cancer and individuals dealing with repetitive injuries, such as repeated breaks and sprains. I also work with mood disorders and phase of life concerns, such as students, new parents, and empty nesters. Taking the first step to go to therapy is a brave one. I truly believe change is possible and life can get better, and I am honored to be part of that journey.
