Thank you for taking time to check out our site! I hope my page gives
you a good introduction to who I am and what I have to offer.
Originally from Kansas, I moved here with my husband, a native of
Colorado, in the year 2000. I have been working in the Conifer and Evergreen communities throughout this time.
My work in a Kansas mental health center gave me experience with foster and adoptive children and families and as an out-patient
therapist with children, adolescents, and adults facing a wide range of challenges. Since moving to Colorado I have
worked as a school social worker at all levels, elementary, middle school and high school levels. I have provided therapy
to kids and their families in the school setting as well as through a private day treatment and residential facility for children
and adolescents. I have also been an advocate for individuals and families involved with the legal system for various
of the setting in which I work and the issues my clients face, it is important to me that compassion and uncompromising respect
be the foundation of my practice. Time and again I have found my work most effective and meaningful when I have achieved
a balance of challenging, objective feedback and a non-judgmental, supportive manner. I use a Strengths-Based and Solution-Focused approach
to build self-assurance and positive momentum toward reaching personal goals. I employ cognitive-behavioral strategies
which explore the important role of thinking in our emotions and actions. On a more personal level, clients have expressed
gratitude and relief regarding my sense of humor, creativity and friendly nature.
Seeking help and support through therapy for yourself, your children,
or another loved one can be challenging and uncomfortable. I would like to ease any worries or stress related to pursuing
my services with a confidential phone call, email, or free consultative session. We can discuss how I might help without
the pressure of commitment. My hourly rate is 100 dollars, though I maintain a sliding scale on a case by case basis
in an effort to eliminate financial obstacles. Please don't hesitate to talk with me about your fee arrangement needs.
If you would like to talk with me or set up an appointment you can contact me through email, phone or text messaging.
I hope to hear from
