Therapy is a profound practice and a privilege I do not take lightly. Each time a new client or couple comes to visit me, I am deeply moved by their bravery and vulnerability.
They have chosen to be pro-active about their lives and refuse to suffer any longer. It’s a priceless decision to invest in themselves and their future.
“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” Nelson Mandela
I have been studying relationships since I was 18 years old as I began my undergraduate degree in Family Science. I also finished with minors in Couple and Family Therapy and Psychology.
This put me ahead of the game when I earned my Master’s in Couple and Family Therapy at Thomas Jefferson University in downtown Philadelphia. No better place to get a relationship degree than the City of Brotherly Love!
There I was trained by the Council for Relationships, pioneers in the field of relationship therapy and the first agency to ever offer Couples Therapy in the United States in 1932!
I specialized in Sex Therapy to ensure I had the skills to address any and all things that can come up in therapy!
From there, I practiced in-home family therapy in Philadelphia and earned a 3-year long certification in Structural Family Therapy.
I moved to Colorado in 2014 and am licensed to practice as an LMFT (Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist). Since coming here, I have had extensive specialized training in EMDR and Gottman Method Couples Therapy, pursuing certification in both.
On a personal note, I live in the Highlands enjoying the perks of the city while escaping to the mountains to camp or hike on weekends.
To practice what I preach, I have a rich yoga practice over at Better Buzz Yoga, work out at F45 Highlands, and regularly go on mindfulness walks with my goldens, Pax and Kane. I like to journal most mornings with a cup of coffee.
Like most transplant Coloradans, I spend my time camping, hiking, brewery hopping, and finding any other excuse to sun worship outside.
