"Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful parts of us."

Welcome

You’ve taken a huge step, and I’m sure you’re wondering how this works and whether it’s the right fit for you. I know I felt the same way at first.

We grow through our challenging experiences

I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Colorado and Michigan. I earned my Master of Social Work degree, specializing in Interpersonal Practice, From Michigan State University, 2007. I’ve worked in many different settings with individuals and families who have a variety of personal issues such as depression/anxiety, stress, family problems, trauma/abuse, addictions of all kinds, relationships/parenting, and more. Over the past 15 years as a clinician, my experience has taught me that the most important aspect of counseling by far is the connection and comfort you feel with the person you choose to share your personal struggles with. I believe we can all grow through challenging experiences by increasing our self-awareness. Sometimes another person, one who isn’t in our immediate circle, can offer a perspective or additional support, that gives us movement in a difficult situation when we feel stuck. It would be my privilege to be that person for you. We all want to be able to share our personal truths and be accepted and understood. I believe it’s very important to be open-minded and non-judgmental when someone shares their personal story or experiences with me. Our relationship with ourselves and others has worth and is useful to explore in counseling.

I’m here for you

You are welcome to message me anytime. The frequency with which you can have access to a counselor to work through day-to-day emotions and problem-solving is extremely beneficial for most and a nice change from traditional outpatient counseling. I usually check messages twice each day, seven days per week. I am currently offering video sessions.
